Jaw drop not included.
Well, before you dive into backsplashes and countertops, perhaps it's best to take a step back and think about your budget. In 2019, a kitchen remodel could set you back quite a bit. According to popular home wesbsite Houzz, kitchens "command the highest median spend in home remodels" — which amounts to $11,000 — based on their survey of 1,337 U.S. homeowners. For those undergoing a major remodel of a kitchen of 200+ square-feet, that figure shoots up to a whopping $33,000 for national median spend.
