Big vision with a small budget for your kitchen remodeling project? Attaining a custom-looking kitchen can be challenging, especially since kitchens are typically the most expensive room in your home. Use these tips to save money on your kitchen remodeling project.
Use Open Shelving Instead of Cabinets
If your remodeling project includes expanding your kitchen, consider going with open shelving for your dishware to save on the cost of purchasing new cabinets. This is becoming a popular trend as it creates a much more open feel in your space. You can also purchase inexpensive serving ware in different colors to add more visual interest.
Spray Paint Your Hardware
Depending on how many cabinets you have changing out your hardware can be expensive. Instead, purchase spray paint for metal and you can take your existing hardware from drab to fab!
Reface Instead of Replacing Your Cabinet
Replacing kitchen cabinets is expensive, but with cabinet refacing we use your existing box frame and give a new veneer skin as well as replace the doors with a new style. Typically refacing can save you up to 50% on your kitchen remodeling project.
Shop Resell Stores for Flooring & Cabinets
Salvage and resell stores can be gold mines for finding great bargains on flooring and cabinetry. In addition, with cabinet refacing you can purchase used cabinets and have refacing to match your existing ones.
Purchase Gently Used or Dented Appliances
Facebook Marketplace is a great option to buy used appliances if you have the ability to pick them up yourself. You can typically save a good amount of money buying direct, but you have to make sure the appliance is in good working order. Another option is to ask about scratch and dent appliances at your local store. These pieces have often been slightly damaged during the delivery and now are being sold at a reduced price.
Think Laminate for Your Countertop
Laminates have always had a bad reputation for being cheap and low quality, but they have made significant improvements over the last several years. They now include upscale looks such as marble, stone, wood grain and more!
