Whether you are sprucing up your home, buying groceries or clothing, or taking a vacation, it makes no sense to spend money on one thing when you can get something very similar for a lot less money. A kitchen remodel is one of the most expensive home-improvement undertakings. Here are a few kitchen remodeling ideas on a budget from our experts at Servant Remodeling that will help you achieve the kitchen of your dreams without going bankrupt.
1. Forgo the Stainless Appliances
Home remodeling trends come and go. Decades ago, the “in” kitchen appliance color was avocado green. Today, it’s stainless steel. Two appliance colors that are not necessarily trendy, but that are timeless, are black and white. A stainless-steel refrigerator is nice. But is it worth the significantly higher cost than a black or white fridge? If you’re trying to save money, the answer is “probably not.”
2. Consider Alternative Types of Flooring
Most people opt for tile or hardwoods for their kitchen flooring. But unless you go with cheaply made models, the price-per-square-foot of tile and hardwoods can quickly add up (especially if you have a large kitchen). Bamboo, cork, and stained concrete are less-expensive flooring options that are smart kitchen remodeling ideas on a budget that result in a high-end look.
3. Upgrade Your Cabinets Instead of Replacing Them
Buying new kitchen cabinets will cost you a large chunk of your remodel budget, even if you find them on sale. If your cabinets are in good shape but simply dated, consider painting them. It’s not difficult if you use a paint sprayer and the results will be great if you do the proper prep work (cleaning, sanding, etc.) Speaking of cabinets, one of the best kitchen remodeling ideas on a budget is to replace your old cabinet hardware including drawer pulls, handles, and hinges with new ones.
