Kitchen renovations are fun but can also be costly projects. If you want to cut down on costs, we are here to provide a few recommendations. There are many areas to lower costs, like with your cabinet installation. When it comes to your cabinets, we are proof that you don’t need to spend a fortune on a long-lasting product. At Kitchen Cabinets, we provide cabinets (and other types of kitchen equipment) that are designed to last a lifetime. Let our knowledgeable experts help you outfit the kitchen of your dreams.

But first, let’s see how to slash prices on your upcoming kitchen renovation.

Get Professional Help

This may seem counterintuitive but hear us out. If you struggle with the idea of creating and sticking to a budget, a designer can help you in that area. Not only can they assist you in creating your budget, but they can also prevent you from making costly mistakes. 

One area homeowners struggle with is staying within budget during renovations. A professional can offer suggestions on how not to go over budget, such as ensuring that you select all items you want before the renovation even begins. Knowing exactly what you want will prevent you from making hasty decisions during the renovation. This is one way homeowners drastically go over budget. As you can see, a professional can help you save money in the end.

Buy Shaker Cabinets

One way to save money is by purchasing shaker cabinets. These are the preferred option because they are significantly more affordable than raised panel cabinets. Contrary to popular belief, they are far from cheap-looking. Shaker cabinets can only look cheap if the paint used to coat them is cheap. So, the type of paint that was used is an important consideration to make when purchasing cabinets.

In addition to affordability, these cabinet installs are the preferred option because they are:

  • Timeless (they have been around for decades and are still beloved)
  • Versatile (their many styles and color options make them ideal for almost any kitchen style)
  • Modern (you are sure to find a design option that fits with your modern kitchen)

If you are located in Broward County or Palm Beach County, choose from one of our many styles of cabinets with beautiful and versatile color options.

Buy Refurbished

Part of a kitchen renovation is having to replace appliances, including the ones that cost a pretty penny. These include your dishwasher and refrigerator to keep in line with your new kitchen aesthetic or because they are old and no longer efficient. If you can’t get around swapping out these expensive appliances, then replace them with refurbished alternatives. Refurbished items work similarly to new ones but cost considerably less. We only recommend that when buying refurbished, you avoid products that are sold “as is” and are older than a few years.

Keep the Old Plumbing

Is it imperative that your kitchen layout be changed? If it is not a necessity and you are on a tight budget, then we recommend leaving the plumbing alone. Changing the layout can significantly drive up your cost, as you must now contend with the cost of labor and parts for new plumbing and electrical.

Contribute to the Renovation

If you consider yourself to be handy and you have tackled a few DIY projects around the house, help with the kitchen renovation. Even a small contribution can make a big difference financially. What if you do not consider yourself handy with a toolbox? That’s okay, too. You do not have to have much experience. For example, you can contribute by tiling, hanging drywall, or interior painting.
