Planning a remodeling project is both exciting and overwhelming. It’s exciting because you get to choose exactly what you want, pieces that fit with your unique style, and see your vision come to fruition. It’s a little overwhelming because all of those unique style and vision choices can add up quickly! Here are some of our favorite tips to help you stay in control of your kitchen remodel budget.
Explore Your Countertop Options
Many homeowners have preexisting notions of which countertops are the best, and granite is usually at the top of the list. While granite gets a lot of its enduring popularity from its high quality, it is a very pricey option. In order to stay in control of your kitchen remodel budget, consider using two different countertop surfaces like butcher block and granite. If you don’t want to use granite at all but love the way that it looks, quartz countertops offer the look of granite without the steep cost.
Don’t Move Your Appliances
If you are getting new cabinets or flooring, plan on keeping your appliances exactly where they are. Moving around the hook-ups and plumbing for your appliances can cause installation costs to skyrocket. Reduce your kitchen remodel budget by keeping things where they are. Keep in mind that moving your appliances only one foot can cost just as much as moving them six feet or more.
Peek Through Instead of Demolishing
Open kitchens are very trendy, and many kitchen remodel customers are interested in knocking out the wall that separates their living room and kitchen to open up the space. However, removing a wall is very costly and might require additional structural elements to be put into place. Instead of removing the wall altogether, cut out a small portion. This still opens up your kitchen and makes it more breathable while also ensuring that you stick to your kitchen remodel budget.
