One of the best ways to enhance the value of your home is to upgrade your kitchen without incurring high kitchen remodeling costs. The elements of kitchen remodeling-cabinets, countertops, appliances, flooring-can make you exceed your budget. However, you can keep your budget low by being flexible and get your priorities right.
To keep costs low, don’t make structural changes or add an adjoining room to be part of the kitchen. You can avoid additional plumbing and electrical costs if you avoid moving the range, sink and door. One way of keeping cabinet costs down is opting for standard cabinets instead of custom cabinets. You should also consider using blind-corner cabinets or cabinets with trim molding.
Concrete, quartz and granite countertops are everybody’s dream. However, they are expensive. You can get a similar look by using laminate and tile countertops which are more cost-effective. They also come in different hues and designs that mimic stone and granite. You may also be tempted to go for wood or tile flooring. Instead, use vinyl flooring because it is durable, cheap and inexpensive to maintain yet it will give your kitchen floor an edgy unique look.
