Thinking about remodeling your kitchen after the New Year? Are you looking for a way to completely overhaul your cooking space without breaking the bank? Look no further than MasterWorks Painters. Our professional remodeling contractors have years of experience completing partial and full kitchen remodels. We can help you choose the best areas of your kitchen in which to invest, and the areas where you can hold off and save some of those hard-earned dollars.
1. Decide on a Budget
One of the most important ways to save money on a complete kitchen remodel is to decide on a budget, and then stick to it. Include a line item for each individual expense, no matter how small or minute the expense may seem. You may also want to add a “Miscellaneous” category in order to be prepared for any additional expenses that may pop up.
2. Reuse Existing Appliances
By reusing existing appliances, you automatically save money. You may either use that savings to invest in other areas of the kitchen remodel, or simply enjoy the fact you are staying below the project’s budget.
3. Use Existing Plumbing & Electrical
Whether you purchase new appliances or keep the current ones, using the existing plumbing and electrical lines is a huge savings. Each time kitchen appliances or other items, like kitchen sinks, are moved to a new location, plumbing and electrical lines need to be re-routed. This can certainly add quite a large expense to the overall project.
4. Choose From a Variety of Options
MasterWorks Painters is proud to work with a wide range of partners for cabinets, tile, and backsplash. Our countertop selection alone includes over 1800 varieties. We are more than happy to help you find the countertop or backsplash of your liking, while also remaining within your budget.
5. Keep Existing Cabinets
Anytime you keep an existing portion of your kitchen, you automatically generate savings. Existing cabinets can be sanded down and painted or stained a different color, changing the entire look and feel of your kitchen. Changing out the hardware can also add a subtle, yet powerful, update to the heart of your home.
