Remodeling your kitchen or bath can be a daunting task for some, not to mention the toll it can take on your wallet. Fortunately there are many options for homeowners today to create a beautiful and budget friendly kitchen or bath. Cabinet Discounters of Maryland, Washington DC and Northern Virginia offers some tips for keeping the costs down on your remodel project.
Moving appliances means moving electrical, plumbing or other mechanics needed to relocate them. Changing the layout of your existing bath or kitchen can greatly increase the cost of labor. Instead, consider updating appliances, flooring, cabinets, and hardware in the existing space for a whole new look at a fraction of the cost.
Work In Stages
While not ideal for most homeowners, working your remodel in stages can spread out and maximize your budget. Think about the big picture and what core essentials such as cabinetry that you want to splure on and determine what can wait. Tile backslashes can be installed later in the remodeling process when the countertops of your choice are complete.
Consider Open Shelving
A new kitchen trend for 2015– open shelving creates added interest to a kitchen or bath while saving money on cabinetry. It is functional yet can be an aesthetically pleasing display of kitchen or bath wares for an updated look in your remodel.
Take a Look at Alternative Countertop & Lighting Materials
Laminate countertops are a great budget friendly alternative to natural stone, with many manufactures now creating options that look like real stone. If recessed lighting is not in your budget, try alternatives such as track lighting. It can achieve the same results– efficient task lighting along with a dimming functions for your kitchen or bath.
