Updating your old kitchen on a budget is a challenge, but completely possible. Use these tips to give your kitchen a new look while still keeping your kitchen remodeling costs down.
Want the look of a higher end counter without the price? Keep your costs low by ordering high definition laminate. High definition laminate countertops are incredibly durable and easier to maintain than many stone countertop products. They make any kitchen look great (even if you have not-so-great cabinets) and they cost substantially less—perfect for the budget.
If you’re installing new countertops, make a small investment in an undermount sink. It’ll give your kitchen an updated look without breaking your budget.
New cabinets are a substantial investment. If you want to avoid the big bill and your cabinets are still in good shape, consider refacing your cabinets. Refacing gives your cabinets a new look without the cost of new cabinets and installation.
There are a few ways to save money on your kitchen flooring. Consider laminate flooring, which has the look of stone or wood floors without the price tag. If you have wood floors that are in bad shape, consider refinishing your wood floors. Refinishing your floor is inexpensive and beautiful, and can give your floors new life. For other options, locate a budget-friendly and functional floor that fits your kitchen remodeling budget and space.
If you need any other suggestions on layout or ways to save money, contact a contractor with experience in remodeling within budget. We’ve made lots of recommendations for kitchen updates that fit within their kitchen remodeling budget, while still giving the homeowners a kitchen update they love.
