A Beautiful, New Space

Remodeling a fixer-upper can be extremely rewarding. Whenever I moved into my current home, I certainly didn’t like the way it looked. The flooring was crumbling, the wallpaper was peeling, and the appliances were malfunctioning. So I decided to begin an extensive renovation project. I installed hardwood floors, removed wallpaper, and invested in shiny stainless steel appliances for my kitchen. The results were stunning. Have you recently purchased a fixer-upper? Consider hiring a remodeling contractor to help you transform your new place into the home of your dreams. By working with a reputable remodeling contractor, your renovation will likely be less stressful and more successful. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of hiring a remodeling contractor to complete complex renovation tasks. Enjoy!

Looking To Save Money On Your Kitchen Remodel? Follow These Tips

Are you looking to remodel your kitchen, but don't want the cost to get out of control? These tips should help you do it and stay within your budget.

Select Cost-Effective Cabinets

When it comes to your kitchen cabinets, many people have it stuck in their heads that you need solid wood cabinets. Unfortunately, the cost of solid wood cabinets is going to cause your kitchen remodel to be very expensive. Consider going with cabinets that are made out of medium-density fiberboard instead if you want the cabinets to be affordable. This will allow you to afford cabinets that have more features, which make your kitchen more functional.

Consider A Minimalist Kitchen

Another thing you can do is remodel your kitchen with minimalism in mind. For example, you do not need a kitchen to be surrounded with cabinets on every wall. Consider what you want to store in your cabinets and if they can be stored in a pantry instead. Upper cabinets are going to cost more money at the end of the day when you factor the hardware, moldings, and trim that goes around it. Fill that wall space with things that will decorate the space and bring color to it instead. 

Stick To Your Plan

Once you have a plan for your kitchen remodel in place, you should stick to the plan no matter what. There will always be opportunities to upgrade to things that are better than what you decided on, but remember that the plan you created worked for you and your budget. Those upgrades that you make along the way are just going to cost more money and may not add much value to your kitchen when it comes time to sell your home. Remember that something that seems simple, like swapping out a stove for a larger one, can have a ripple effect that makes your entire job more expensive. 

Have Everything On-Site Before You Start Construction

A costly mistake that people make is getting started with a kitchen remodel before they have everything to install. The problem with getting started early is that you may run into a problem that you do not realize. For example, you have the specifications for your refrigerator and you think it will fit in the space you allocated, but when you actually have the refrigerator on hand it does not work. It may be that the door swings open a bit too wide and you need to make the clearance bigger. These small modifications will cost money and can be avoided if everything is on hand when you start.
