Successful renovators understand how to get maximum impact for minimum spend. 

Ways to Save Money on Your Kitchen Remodel

It’s not money that’s the big ace in a renovator’s arsenal, it’s knowing how to stretch every cent as far as possible. For those looking to give their kitchen an affordable makeover, here are easy ways to get results fast and the best part is, most of these tips can be tackled by a competent novice.

1. Use paint

A truly splendid transformation can be instantly attained with the use of perfectly applied paint. The key is to think outside the box and use specialist paint required for the tasks at hand. As a suggestion; high quality semi-gloss white paint is a cost effective solution that does wonders for outdated cabinets.

2. Flooring

There are some excellent modern flooring ideas that are affordable. Today’s flooring designs are cool, durable and cheap. Consider using stick-on vinyl flooring, as a simple and versatile solution that you can run straight over solid existing floors. It can also be used in wet areas, making it suitable even for bathrooms.

3. Revamping

Kitchen remodelling is probably one of the most expensive home renovations that one can embark on. Some nifty shortcuts that will help you cut back on costs include;

  • Simply changing drawer and cupboard fronts if the cabinets are in good condition.
  • Resurfacing laminate benchtops/ countertops. Tip: Use Rust-Oleum Countertop Transformations for a granite-like finish that looks surprisingly authentic.

4. Updating Lighting

Bringing in better lighting is a superb move in any kitchen remodeling project. An addition of well-designed pendants for style and light will add style and elegance. Overhead and under-cabinet lighting should be sufficiently bright and concentrated in areas where the cook will be working.

5. Paying attention to detail

Changing minor things like power-point covers, light switches, handles and tapware will modernise the kitchen and give it a facelift. These replacements are inexpensive in themselves, but together they’ll really lift the kitchen to the next level.

Have a Grand Plan

If you’re doing a massive kitchen remodel that goes beyond just painting the cabinets or replacing the countertops, then you need to have a solid plan in effect. Decide on everything you want in the kitchen, and have it on-site before you commence any work.
