3 Ways To Save Money On Your Next Kitchen Remodeling Project


A great way to update your home and maybe even increase its value is to have the kitchen remodeled. A new kitchen can improve the overall appeal of your home's design and increase comfort and productivity while you cook and bake. Here are a few ways that you may be able to save some money on your next kitchen remodeling project:

Refurbish Your Cabinetry

One great way to save some money on your upcoming kitchen remodeling project is to refurbish the cabinets that you already own instead of buying brand-new ones. Simply giving them a new coat of paint can do wonders to bring them back to life. However, there are other refurbishing options to consider such as:

  • Replace the doors with glass for a transparent look
  • Install designer trim on the edges and corners
  • Cover the exterior surfaces with tiles
  • Replace the hardware with something completely different
  • Replace damaged wood with veneer instead of solid wood

Even if you decide to implement several of these techniques, the cost of doing so should be only a fraction of the cost that it would take to buy, ship, and install brand-new cabinets.

Learn About "Knockoff" Countertops

There are many types of kitchen countertops to choose from, many of which are gorgeous yet pricey. Luckily, some "knockoff" options for some of those expensive countertops are available. For example, manufactured stone is designed to look just like natural stone, only it is much less expensive. There are also laminate countertop options designed to look like stone, quartz, and marble that can give your kitchen that updated look you're going for without putting a huge dent in your budget.

Go For a Fun Yet Affordable Backsplash

Your kitchen backsplash helps to infuse extra depth and design into the space overall, so it shouldn't be overlooked. There are fancy options to choose from made of materials like glass, marble, and stone. However, there are plenty of budget-friendly options available that many people don't consider as they're focused on matching the material and value of the countertops.

Many budget-friendly options will provide the same quality look and feel that the countertops do even if they aren't as expensive. Vinyl decals, for example, can be applied on top of your current backsplash for an updated look without looking like it's of less quality or lesser value than the more expensive countertops they trim. Tile, laminate, wood, and even tin are all budget-friendly options that are worth looking into.

Choosing A Remodeling Theme

After I started focusing more seriously on making over my home, I realized that there were a few things I needed to do. For starters, I realized that I needed to go through and work with a professional to rework the space. We talked about things like workflow and the initial impression of the space, and it was great to hear someone else's opinion of what needed to happen. Within about six months, the entire area was completely finished, and I was really happy with how things turned out. This blog is all about choosing a remodeling theme when you are making over your home.
