Remodeling is expensive. Even repainting is an investment. There are some ways you can save on your home remodeling project with a little planning, flexibility and work on your part. We don’t mean a DIY remodel; we’re talking about saving while using a local kitchen remodeling company. Here are a few tips.
Keep the Same Layout
Also called the footprint. One of the easiest expenses to cut is that of the plumber and electrician. If you leave your stove, dishwasher, refrigerator and sink where they are, you will reduce your budget for these specialists. If that’s not feasible, try to limit how far you’re moving things or keep them on the same wall.
There are many options when it comes to appliances. First, decide if the ones you have will suit your new kitchen. If not, talk about the features you really want in your new appliances. What are you willing to sacrifice if they cost hundreds more? Next, look around. Although your local kitchen remodeling company may offer appliances, they may not be the right ones for you. Listen to their options and consider them, but also look at the local big box stores and warehouse clubs. You may be surprised. Also, don’t automatically say no to a floor model. Look at any blemishes, if they’ll be hidden by your cabinets, they don’t really matter.
Cabinets use up a large portion of your budget. There are countless options in materials, styles, customizations and colors. Think about replacing some of your cabinetry with shelving. Shelves cost considerably less and provide similar storage space.
Although you may have picked the backsplash tile you love, how much is it per square foot. Can you find an alternative that’s just as perfect for your new kitchen, but costs less? The same goes for cabinet knobs and pulls, faucets and fixtures. Don’t sacrifice quality or style, but see if making a different option helps you better meet your budget goals.
