The average kitchen makeover costs between $20,000 and $50,000, depending on the extent of the work. However, if you take some advice from the pros on how to save money during a kitchen redesign, you will be able to get a lot more bang for your buck. Many people and even large family households simply do not have the resources to spend thousands of dollars on a kitchen remodel, and that is why we wanted to provide you with some more affordable methods that you can give your kitchen space a new look while staying within your budget.
4 Tips for Remodeling Your Kitchen on a Budget
Plan it Out
Don’t try to save money by not hiring a professional to draft a design plan if you’re doing more than just painting the cabinets or replacing the countertops during your kitchen remodel. Hiring a designer saves you time and money in the long run by preventing costly mistakes. You can get recommendations from family and friends on designers that they may have used in the past, but typically, if you plan on doing a more complex remodel, then there will probably be things that you might forget to consider and a professional designer will be able to help you out with all of that as well as take a lot of stress out of the process for you too.
Make Sure You’re Ready
After selecting a professional to work with and developing a plan for your kitchen remodel, decide on absolutely everything you want in the kitchen and have it on-site before a single inch of space sees the sledgehammer. Choosing products throughout the remodel is one of the things that sends a budget spinning out of control. When a product is backordered, the homeowner is frequently confronted with a decision: choose a different item, which is often more expensive, or wait for their initial choice, when their trades people may have other tasks scheduled and the homeowner may be charged more for the service.
Additionally, you should be mentally ready to watch your kitchen space change and ultimately look much different. And lastly, make sure you have the money you need to get the job done right and maybe even a little extra in case something goes wrong during the remodeling process and you end up having to redo something or buy extra parts that may be pricey.
Paint Outdated Cabinets Bright White
New cabinets are one of the most expensive aspects of any kitchen renovation. However, if yours are in decent condition, consider keeping them and simply giving them a new design. When painting cabinets in a kitchen makeover, white paint can save you money and do wonders for old cabinets. We suggest washing, priming, and painting cabinets with high-quality white semi-gloss paint. The dazzling white look will be enhanced by the addition of new hardware. Also, a white finish will make your kitchen look very clean.
Illuminate With Lights
Adding additional and better lighting is a wise decision in any makeover, but it is especially important in the kitchen. Installing well-designed pendant lights for added flair and light, and making sure overhead lighting is strong and concentrated in areas where the cook will be working is important. Don’t overlook the details: installing under-cabinet lighting will not break the bank but will have a significant impact. Be sure to remember these things before getting your hands dirty with your remodel.
