Which Renovation Project Should You Prioritize: The Kitchen or Bathroom?

The two most commonly renovated rooms in America are the kitchen and the bathroom. These rooms receive a lot of traffic and use, therefore requiring more frequent updates than other parts of the home. At MJ Brown Renovations, we provide both kitchen and bathroom renovations throughout Hamilton County. We will work with you from concept to completion, to create a functional, luxurious space for your family to enjoy for years to come.

Kitchen Remodeling

Choosing a Room

As a homeowner, it can be difficult to know which renovation project to tackle first. If you are struggling to decide between renovating the kitchen or the bathroom, check out our comparison guide below.


In general, kitchen renovations are more expensive than bathroom remodels. While this fact may not surprise you, it is something to consider as you plan ahead for your home renovation. The cost of appliances, new cabinets and countertops, and the fact that kitchens are typically larger, lead to a more costly renovation bill.


At MJ Brown, we strive to minimize the impact of the home remodeling process on our clients’ daily lives. As such, we show up on time and complete the job within the predetermined time frame. Similarly, because we value the health and safety of our clients, we always use  drop cloths, plastic zip walls, and industrial air scrubbers, to keep your home clean throughout the renovation process. Still, remodeling takes time and limits your use of the room under construction; take into account your ability to cope without the room during construction.

Best for Resale

If you are looking to improve your home’s resale value, the kitchen tends to have a greater impact on potential buyers than the bathroom. As the heart of the home, realtors tend to showcase the kitchen, making it the focal point of your home. According to Consumer Reports, however, bathrooms are ranked just below the kitchen with respect to influence on home sales.
