5 Ways to Save Money on Your Kitchen Cabinet Remodel
Remodeling projects can be expensive, especially a kitchen cabinet remodel. No matter what your budget, there are some ways you can make the project more affordable. Updating the kitchen is one of the best investments you can make in improving your family’s home, but lets look at five ways you can save.
Reface Rather than Replace
If your cabinets are functional but just are no longer visually appealing, cabinet refacing is an option which is often much more affordable than you might think. Refacing kitchen cabinets can cover up many unsightly problems and since the old cabinets are not removed, there is no demolition involved. That means it tends to be quicker and your family can often still use the room during the process. Refacing can change the color from dark to light or visa-versa, thus changing the look of the room completely without having to remove old cabinets.
Avoid Excessive Demolition
If your kitchen cabinet remodel will need to go beyond refacing the existing cabinets, first consider if you might be able to get by with keeping your current kitchen’s basic footprint. Avoiding the removal of walls will save money in many ways, such as avoiding the costs of rewiring and the hiring of a professional architect to access the home’s structure, determine load-bearing walls, and create new plans.
Don’t Relocate the Sink
Moving the sink means new plumbing, which can add thousands of dollars to your kitchen cabinet remodel. Re-doing the plumbing can also cause of unexpected problems, especially in older homes where you may encounter leaks or find that pipes that aren’t up to current building codes. Explore options and plans which leave the sink in its current location and move the cabinets or appliances instead.
Choose Your Appliances Wisely
If funds are limited, remember that you don’t necessarily have to replace all of your appliances when doing a kitchen cabinet remodel. Consider carefully which of your existing appliances are still completely functional and how you might work them into the design. Be sure to consider the entire layout of the kitchen before purchasing any of the appliances. You’ll want to make sure to purchase those which fit properly in your design and order ones with doors that open in a direction most friendly to your new space. If you plan to sell your home in the near future and can afford it, consider stainless steel appliances. They are something many home buyers are looking for.
