Remodeling your kitchen does not have to cost an arm and a leg. There are many DIY projects and little tidbits of information we can give you to accommodate your tight budget. Though Albaugh & Sons will do most of the large grunt work, there are a few things you can do on your own to maximize cost savings. You really can have the kitchen of your dreams. Say goodbye to the cramped feeling and open up the kitchen: and a world of possibilities.
Don’t budge from your budget.
“But that color of granite countertop looks so much better than the other granite pattern.” Walk away. Sometimes the lower cost item looks just as nice as the one with a high price tag. We trick ourselves into thinking that the more something costs, the higher the functionality. This is not always the case. Another cost saver is if you keep the sink and large appliances where they are. It saves money on plumbing and electrical work. A good budget on the low side to work with is about $20,000; and that is if you do-most-of-it-yourself. If you want an upscale kitchen remodeling, a high budget of $80,000 can get you up to date technology and appliances.
Priorities are key.
Make a list of what you want to accomplish during your kitchen remodel. Do you really need that wine fridge? You could put that few hundred dollars towards the new cabinets you wanted to install. Once you have listed each item you want to update or change, price it out. If you are looking to save money in the long run, think about purchasing a new refrigerator. Many new fridges are energy efficient and can save you electricity dollars over the lifespan. Are you going to be staying in your home during the renovation? Keep in mind your number one priority is to feed your family. Factor food expenses into the mix. Since your kitchen will be unavailable, do you have a basement kitchen or will you be eating out? That is food for thought.
