How is your current budget looking? Can it manage a major kitchen remodel that could cost tens of thousands of dollars? We didn’t think so, which is why we wanted to come up with some budget friendly ideas that you will love! If you have been postponing your kitchen remodel due to costs, you may change your mind after seeing what we have come up with.
Here are 5 budget-friendly kitchen remodeling ideas you’ll love:
Stick with what You Need
When you began planning your kitchen remodel, you probably decided that you needed to replace and repair everything in this space. Well, does everything really need to go? Do you really need everything to be brand sparkling new? We recommend that you take a good look around your kitchen and see what you can keep and utilize in your new space. You may find that your cabinets are still in excellent condition and that you may be able to stain or paint them to make them look fresh and save a bundle. You may be able to keep your existing flooring or appliances as well.
Shop Around for Materials
You may have your heart set on a specific countertop, but then you find that the cost will eat up a good portion of your budget. It is never a good idea to blow an entire budget on one item, which is why we always say to shop around for materials. You probably won’t find that exact same countertop for less anywhere else, but you may find another type that you love just as much.
Check Second Hand Stores
There are numerous second-hand stores popping up all over the place and they can be a great place to start looking for items for your remodeled kitchen. You may not find everything you need, and you may need to be creative and repurpose an item into something else, but this is a great way to save on your budget.
Consider a Little DIY
You are not going to be able to do all the work on your own, after all, there is plumbing, electrical, and more specialty things going on in this space. However, you may be able to demolish the items that you are removing. Just make sure that you don’t do more damage than necessary, or your costs will skyrocket immediately.
Replace only the Appliances You Need to
You may not need to replace all your appliances, which means that you can save some money to use on other items for your remodel. We recommend choosing quality appliances instead of the cheapest ones that you can find, or you will be replacing them sooner than later and spending even more money. We also recommend that you consider buying appliances that are sold as a set, if you do need to replace everything, because you can save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars by doing so.
These five budget-friendly ideas will save you a bundle on your kitchen remodel and we know that you can think of ways to save even more. Start thinking of your options now and then get to work remodeling your kitchen into the space that you have been dreaming of!
