3 Tips For Sticking To Your Kitchen Remodeling Budget

Written by admin on July 23, 2018. Posted in Uncategorized

Setting a budget for your kitchen remodeling plans isn’t always easy, especially if you’re dreaming of a massive overhaul with all new appliances. While kitchen remodeling projects do vary greatly in price, there are several ways experts say you can cut costs while still achieving the glamorous look of a kitchen you just can’t wait to cook in. Here are just a few pro tips for cutting back costs on your kitchen remodeling plans.

Choose Everything Early

One place many homeowners go wrong that can cause them to exceed their budget limitations is choosing the products needed for your remodel. It’s important to pick out everything you’ll want and need for the remodel before it even begins. This helps you to get a better idea of the entire project’s cost and avoid unexpected expenses that can otherwise be unavoidable.

Prioritize Lighting

Many homeowners underestimate the ambient effect that the right lighting can have on a kitchen remodel without breaking your budget. But experts say that both overhead lighting as well as under-cabinet lighting can really pack a punch.

“Hang well-designed pendants for style and light, and make sure overhead lighting is bright and concentrated in areas where the cook will be working,” writes Alyson McNutt on HGTV.

Don’t Move Utilities

Finally, some homeowners don’t quite realize the costs associated with simply relocating kitchen appliances or the plumbing that goes with them. Plumbing companies say it costs about $5,000 to move an appliance like a dishwasher or gas stove to a different area of your kitchen. Of course, this varies based on plumbing contractors and electricians, but it’s definitely worth it to explore your options when it comes to maintaining the same utility layout of your kitchen.

A minor kitchen remodel has an average return on investment (ROI) of 82.7%. Understanding how to find the perfect balance between cost and quality is the key to making the most of any remodeling job.
