Kitchen remodeling projects can be overwhelming and expensive. A kitchen remodel is fairly complex as there are many things to consider such as plumbing, appliances, countertops, lighting, gas lines, electricity, plumbing, cabinets, fixtures, and more. Here are a couple ideas on how to lower costs when remodeling your kitchen.
One of the simplest ways to save money is not moving appliances and sinks so that plumbing, electricity, and gas supply lines do not have to be tampered with. Moving supply lines can get expensive fairly quickly since floors and walls most likely need to be gutted.
The appliances themselves can get fairly expensive. Try looking for bargains by shopping for floor models. They are brand new and have the same warranty, the dealer may even extend the warranty free of charge in order to get rid of them. The fall is usually a good time to buy them since that is when the following year’s models are released. Also, try to buy all the appliances from the same dealer in order to get a package deal.
Cabinets are one of the largest expenses. You may be able to save costs by going directly to a cabinet maker, however, keep in mind that measuring your kitchen and planning the layout is not always free is a crucial step that can’t be skipped. If you hire a contractor to remodel your kitchen, make sure they offer this service.
Granite and marble countertops can get expensive. You can save costs by going directly through wholesalers such as those that only sell granite slabs. If you are in Northern Virginia you are able to leverage our wholesale discount we have.
