Remodeling kitchens can be an expensive endeavour. From floors to appliances, the costs add up quickly. That’s why we have a few remodeling tips to keep your kitchens within budget.
Find Affordable Cabinets
Finding the perfect kitchen cabinets for your new kitchen can be difficult and expensive. However, cheaping out and getting pre-made designs that are difficult to fit into your kitchen isn’t a good idea either.
Your best bet is to find a good, local cabinet maker that can help you pick out a design that is within your budget and fits your kitchen’s new aesthetic. To save yourself even more money, try to find one that is having a deal on their cabinets at that time.
Don’t Over Design
When choosing a design for your kitchen, it can be easy to go overboard. This is very important when you are trying to stick to a strict budget. Find a simple and doable design and stick with it. Don’t get sucked in by new ideas later on down the road that add up and are not needed.
Don’t Overdo the Floors
Simple wooden floors look amazing in any room with the right sanding and staining. This simple and rather inexpensive hack will work with almost any kitchen aesthetic you are going for too! Just choose the right stain and you are good to go.
Don’t Let Materials Go To Waste
You paid for it, use it. About 5-15% of materials are thrown away during a kitchen remodeling. That is just like throwing money away!
Use left over materials to create cutting boards or rollout inserts, really anything you want! Just don’t let it be wasted.
Use Remnant Stone For Your Countertops
No need to break the bank when putting in a granite countertop. Just go down to a granite supply yard and ask to see their remnants. Often you will find a piece that will work great for your kitchen, and will be much cheaper than buying from a store.
The best part? There is no way anyone will ever know it’s a remnant and not store bought.
