List all your Renovation Priorities
Kitchens are an important room of the house. When you look into your kitchen, you want to see a space that is clean and organized. You want to see a place that is inviting. You want to be able to cook for your family in a place where you feel comfortable. By choosing the right design team, you can accomplish all these things and more.
The first step in designing the ideal kitchen is to really sit down and think about what is most important to you in this space. Is it new appliances? Is it new cabinets? Take some time to write down your priorities so that if unexpected costs hit your budget, you’ll still get the top things on your list done.
Avoid Adding Unnecessary Items
Revamping your kitchen is like redecorating your whole house in one fell swoop. It’s a big, complicated project that’s extremely easy to get carried away with and blow your budget on. But if you’re determined to give it a go, don’t let yourself be swayed by the hype of endless options. If you catch yourself saying, “It would be so great if we added this awesome feature,” stop yourself. This is how budgets get blown.
If you do want to add something cool, consider going smaller instead of bigger. If it’s an appliance you really want, maybe there’s an older model that will still do the trick. Or are there any other parts of your kitchen that are kind of broken down or need replacing anyway? The larger your kitchen and the more complex its layout, the more expensive it will be.
Stay faithful to the old layout
Kitchen remodels usually involve some amount of demolition and construction. That’s what makes them exciting, but it also means they’re expensive. If you want to avoid the cost of tearing out cabinets, replacing the flooring, and putting in new counters and appliances, you can By keeping your kitchen layout essentially the same while updating the elements within that framework, you can achieve a whole new look.
This can be incredibly cost-effective. You generally won’t have to add any new plumbing or electrical work. You can also keep your existing flooring if you wish (flooring often doesn’t run under cabinets, so if you change the layout, you’ll have to deal with gaps in the flooring). And you can still achieve a whole new look and feel in the space.
Expect the unexpected
When you start a kitchen remodel, you want everything to go as smoothly as possible. You want to get what you’re paying for and not be bound by any unanticipated complications. Unfortunately, the second you pick up a hammer and start tearing into your walls, there’s a decent chance you’re going to run into some surprises. This can happen even in an older home with seemingly less behind-the-scenes work to be done.
There are all sorts of budget-busting surprises lurking behind the walls or under the floor. It’s like when you rip out your walls and discover your electrical wiring is out of date. Or you pull out your dishwasher and discover the floor beneath it is rotten thanks to a water leak you didn’t know about. The good news is that these problems are almost always solvable, but it may take time and money—that could have been spent elsewhere or saved for other parts of the remodel.
