A kitchen remodel is one of those projects where everything can seem so simple but it can quickly get complicated. Check out these tips to save time and money, as you do not want to have to address major issues once you have started the remodeling process.
Keep Within Your Budget
At the outset decide if you want a high, medium or low end kitchen remodel. Costs can run from in excess of $50,000 to as little as $1,500 depending on what you want to achieve. One important consideration is the overall value of your home and the neighborhood you reside in. You may not get the full resale value of your investment if you spend $40,000 on a kitchen in a two bedroom starter home.
Remember “The Look” Of Your Home
Every home has an architectural style. it may be very obvious or very subtle but when you do remodel remember to style your kitchen so it at least suits the surrounding interior of the house as you will not want to have a kitchen that looks like it has been planted in from a home with a totally different interior style.
Kitchen improvements are like persona lcomputers, there is always something new coming out. The rate of technological developments though means there are bargains to be had and more environmentally friendly options than ever before.
Don’t Move The Plumbing
Especially in older homes, moving water and gas lines can become very problematic and expensive. Keep the pipe-connected elements where they are and keep extra cash in your pocket.
Think Of The Floor Plan
If your budget allows you to rearrange appliances, be sure to keep your floor plan into consideration. Does it follow the triangular pattern between the refrigerator, stove, and oven? Is your dishwasher next to the sink? If not, you are going to create a mess every time you walk across the kitchen with a dripping dish in your hands.
Think Twice About Old Cabinets
If your old cabinets are made from good quality wood because cabinet grames are the most expensive component and can be saved if they are a good wood and in good condition, you can of course add hardware and doors, repaint, relaminate the front of the cabinets and repaint. Ensure the cabinest are lightly sanded and clean.
Home remodeling stores carry a large selection of door hardware. Pick knobs and pulls that complement the architectural style. These are an added touch that makes the whole room pop!
