During home renovations, many owners tend to spend the most on moving plumbing and gas lines, per Emily Henderson. But, if your sink, stove, fridge, island, as well as your appliances all work perfectly fine and are in a spot that doesn’t negatively impact the functionality of the space, then why move it? Henderson’s team explained they only replaced the sink and none of the other items, which is what was their biggest money-saving tactic.
Mr. Blue Plumbing says it can cost $750 to $1,100 to move gas lines and $600 to $900 for domestic water lines. Adding new fixtures will also obviously increase your spending, as installing a new sink can cost you $400. You can also avoid spending thousands by keeping your current flooring material and creating a design concept around it. This will avoid additional costs of material and labor. Kitchen & Bath Shop says homeowners with a 500-square-foot kitchen typically spend $3000 to replace the flooring.
