How much to renovate two bed house?(7 Posts)
Looking at a two bed mid terrace that needs work. New kitchen, bathroom. Walls need replastered, new flooring, decoration, new windows and doors. Downstairs is living room and kitchen only. Rooms fairly small. Has anyone done anything similar that could give me a rough cost? I’m in Scotland.
It pretty much depends on what standard you’re going for... eg is the kitchen bespoke Tom Howley or is it B&Q? Same for flooring, bathrooms, etc etc. Sorry not to be helpful, but can you add if you’re looking at the decent but not high-spec end or the luxury end?
Decent like B&Q, Howdens. Nothing high end or bespoke but not super basic either.
About a hundred pounds a wall for re skimming. You should be able to get a bathroom for £2k including fitting.
Windows are expensive I’ve spent £3k on upvc French doors and 3 windows. Wooden ones are similar.
Kitchens vary I got a symphony for less than £2k they are much better than b&q. Gower rapide are also good kitchens.
Mid price carpet and Lino cost £1300 including fitting.
Internal door £60 a door upwards
I’m also in Scotland and had a bathroom done last summer for £3,500. That included removing old bath etc, fixing rotten floor under bath, new bath, basin and toilet, part tiling the walls - around bath and basin so about a wall and a half. Also got showere installed for first time to run off combi boiler. This did not include any flooring, lighting or ceiling work.
Flooring you should be able to work out by cost per sq m of your chosen flooring and contact local carpet fitters etc for an idea of their charges.
Windows and doors - good quality front door - budget around £1,200 or more. Windows - last year I paid £1,800 for 5 windows. One tall narrow window, the other four were smaller as attic dormers. Good quality windows from local firm.
No idea about kitchens or plastering.
So many variables! Plastering comes in at £250-300 a room more if it's huge/lofted/stairs. Bathroom from £2k but depends so much on what fittings likewise kitchen from £5k including basic appliances. My father charged £20k last year to renovate a holiday cottage plus the materials
