Your kitchen is the soul of your home. It’s where you prepare daily meals, enjoy your first cup of coffee and relax while baking your favourite treats. Since you spend a lot of time in your kitchen, it’s vital that the environment is welcoming – functional and pleasing to the eye.
Renovating your home’s kitchen will add significant value to your home and is typically suggested by most realtors if you’re thinking of selling in the future. But that state-of-the-art kitchen you see on the food channel might set you back quite a bit if you don’t know what you’re doing so here are some tips on how you can save money on your renovation project.
1. Don’t Move the Existing Plumbing
Be smart when planning your kitchen renovation. Moving kitchen drains and sinks can be costly so try to find a way to work around them. If you’re not crazy about your kitchen’s layout, try to find other ways to change the design like a kitchen island.
2. Reface Cabinets Instead of Replacing Them
Installing brand new kitchen cabinets can be pricey. If yours are still in good condition, consider refacing them with paint or keep the structure and just replace the cabinet doors.
3. Make Superficial Changes
Sometimes the small changes to your kitchen make the biggest difference. For example, changing your backsplash or the colour of your cabinets won’t cost you much but will give your kitchen an entirely new look and feel.
4. Create a Budget and Stick to It
Put your budget on paper, make sure you have provision for unexpected expenses and then don’t go over the budget!
