Enact a Plan
Planning ahead and putting together a quality kitchen design will pay big when all’s said and done. Many people who are budgeting for a more-affordable kitchen renovation will skip on hiring a professional for the design process. While this makes sense at the start, the reality is that skimping on the costs here may end up costing you big by project’s end. Utilizing a quality plan will help to save time and reduce material waste, saving you doubly in the process.
While most homeowners are excited to dive into their kitchen remodel, it often pays big to properly prepare before demolishing the existing features. Once you have a plan in place, be sure to purchase your inventory in its entirety, or as much as possible. Many home renovation projects end up with an inflated price tag due to a needed material being out of stock and backordered. At this point, you can either wait (which is inconvenient without kitchen amenities) or purchase a similar product (which costs more). If you cannot find a suitable substitute, your home contractors may charge more for the time delay. Completing your inventory of necessary materials before breaking ground helps to avoid costly setbacks.
Replacing the cabinets in your kitchen can prove to be a hefty part of the renovation budget. If your cabinets are not looking good, yet they are still in usable condition, it can prove productive to freshen them up with a couple layers of paint. Be sure to wash, prep, prime, and paint your cabinets properly to breathe new life into them. White paint is often the most efficient color for restoring the quality of your kitchen cabinets and keeping them modern in appearance. A cost-effective bonus at this stage is purchasing new hardware accentuate the bright colors and further enhance the aesthetics of your cabinetry.
Enhancing the Lighting
Purchasing new, stylish lighting fixtures can be very cost-effective for updating your kitchen and illuminating it with pride. Recessed lighting, pendants, sconces, and other modern lighting elements can be utilized to optimize your renovations. Many people make the mistake of not investing enough time and energy into their kitchen lighting project. Those that do, however, earn returns when the project is complete. Products such as under-cabinet lighting can help to make a big impact on your kitchen while avoiding a high price tag.
Retain Your Floorplan
One major part of any kitchen renovation is the process of relocating your existing plumbing and electrical sources to a new area. Hiring a professional for this stage is necessary and recommended, as the chances for error when fashioning new lines and wiring new outlets are too high. A professional plumber can help in moving your sink, yet the process will probably require them to modify walls, tear up the flooring to gain access to plumbing, and more. Relocating one appliance will typically cost you a few thousand dollars, driving up the total expenditure in a quick manner. NTX’s budget-friendly renovation solutions can help you to stretch your dollar further while making a major impact on the finished product.
