Kitchen remodeling projects can take up any amount of money, but some small, simple, DIY updates can also give you spectacular results – here are some tips for you about how not to spend a fortune on your new kitchen:
- Evaluate the space and make realistic decisions about what needs to go and what can stay – if your cabinets have worn doors, but the boxes are still solid, you can refresh the appearance of your kitchen by updating only the doors – look for quality Denver cabinets at local design centers. Some paint or wallpaper and new handles or knobs are all that you need;
- Evaluate your own capacities and decide about the work that you can and are willing to do yourself – handling some of the work processes yourself and hiring contractors only for what you cannot do will not only cut the remodel costs, but will also give you a rewarding experience;
- Don’t be afraid of synthetic materials – the dream kitchen for many people has hardwood floors and marble countertops, but the truth is that synthetic materials have evolved a lot in recent years and are great for high-quality, but low-budget remodels. Vinyl flooring materials come in a wide variety of designs and epoxy resin is just as strong and durable as granite, but offers much more design opportunities.
