Did you know that the kitchen is most likely the first room to be renovated in a home? It is also the room to be renovated more times than any other room over a twenty-year span. I’m sure you’re scratching your head asking yourself “but why?” Well, the answer is quite simple the kitchen is the predominant place that benefits everyone and is used most frequently, having more wear and tear sooner than any other room. A kitchen upgrade typically involves a fresh coat of paint, newer appliances, changing out old tiles, perhaps knocking down a wall or even swamping in a different countertop and let us not forget replacing the cabinet doors. Now within that kitchen remodel what area do you think most of the budget will go to? We’ll give you a hint ‘Cabinetry” according to homeadvisor.com out of 100% of a budget 29% of that would be spent on the cabinetry and hardware, followed by 17% being spent on installment.
Cabinetry makes up most of the budget because most of the kitchen is in fact cabinets. As you think about it, it is pretty funny picturing your kitchen in your head and just seeing a plethora of cabinets laugh out loud. Still no matter how bizarre that percentage may seem replacing cabinetry can get expensive and that’s because of the many different types to choose from. The make, style, texture, material, even color plays a big factor in cabinets.
