Remodeling your kitchen not only updates a highly trafficked room in your home, this undertaking also makes it work more efficiently for you. A kitchen that is freshly remodeled is also more attractive to those people who are in the market for a new home.
Staying Within Your Budget
There are creative ways that you can utilize to stay within your budget. Adopt some of the ideas listed below and watch as your kitchen undergoes a transformation right before your eyes.
1. Minimize Your Backsplash
Having an extensive backsplash adds an expense to your kitchen remodel that can be curbed to help you stay within your budget. While a tiled backsplash that extends across the entire back wall behind your stove looks impressive, restricting it to the immediate area. Not only does doing so save you a great deal of money, but it also gives more significance to the tile that's there.
2. Reface Your Kitchen Cabinets
When you think about how much use your kitchen cabinets get over the course of just one day, it's easy to understand how they can quickly show so much wear. Whether it's hundreds of tiny scratches or smears and smudges that don't quite seem to come off no matter how much you scrub, there is nothing that dates a kitchen like its cabinets.
3. Springing for new cabinets can eat up a significant portion of your budget. Fortunately, there is a way to get the fresh look of new cabinets at a fraction of the cost. Simply have your cabinets refaced instead of replaced. As an added bonus, the refacing process takes up less time so your kitchen remodel stays on deadline as well as within budget.
4. Focus on Lighting
The type of lighting that's used in your kitchen can make a big difference in the way it looks. Having enough light not only makes the room look larger, fresher and brighter, it also makes it easier to complete the myriad of tasks that are undertaken in the room. Even though your kitchen remodel should include copious amounts of light, it doesn't have to be expensive. Pendant lighting, for example, when it's well placed can add both focused light and style to your kitchen. Including lighting under the cabinets makes a big visual impact as well.
