Planning To Remodel Your Kitchen? 3 Tips To Help You Save Money

Remodelling a kitchen can be fun but it can also be very expensive. Fortunately, there are many ways you can save money and still end up with a kitchen that you will be proud of. Keep reading for three tips on how you can do this. 


Cabinets can be expensive to replace depending on the type you choose. One thing to consider is painting the cabinets instead of replacing them. When you paint them, this will make the cabinets look completely different and look like new again. 

You may be replacing your cabinets because you think they are too dark, or they may be too dull. You could choose a much lighter colour, such as white or tan. Even if you choose to hire a professional cabinet painter it would still be much less expensive when compared to buying new ones. 

Another way to make cabinets look different is to remove some of the doors, especially on upper cabinets. This will provide you with open shelving where you could store dishes or store decorative items you want to display in your kitchen. 

Quartz Countertop

If you are replacing or repainting your cabinets, you should also consider replacing the countertop. Quartz is popular because it is scratch resistant, does not stain easily, and will not chip easily. This would be a good choice as you would not have to worry about replacing the countertop. You also do not ever have to apply a sealant on quartz, which can save you more money. 

You can find quartz countertops in a variety of colours, and some will mimic limestone or marble. Both limestone and marble are more expensive and also are considered to be high maintenance. 

Wood Flooring

If you are planning to put wood flooring in your kitchen, this can be expensive. Wood can also get scratches and dents easily. Wood is also not resistant to moisture, which is common in a kitchen.

Instead of choosing wood flooring, there are more options available. There is porcelain tile that comes in a variety of colours and designs. You can choose tiles that mimic wood so you will look like you have wood flooring. There are tiles that also mimic stone flooring. There is laminate and vinyl flooring that can also mimic wood. These two materials are much less expensive when compared to wood flooring and are also more durable.
