It’s the most important room in your house. And yet, many people think that it’s just an afterthought or a simple detail to be taken care of once everything else is done and dusted.
But if you’re like most homeowners out there, you know how wrong this notion is: The kitchen should be given as much attention as any other room in the house; and we’ll tell you why.
Here are 10 ways to save money on your next kitchen renovation package:We all know that saving money is important, but it can be hard to do when you’re renovating your kitchen. When we renovated our kitchen a few years ago, we were shocked by how expensive everything was. The cost of appliances and materials seemed to go up every time we turned around. Solution: There are a lot of ways to save on your next renovation project, from buying used or refurbished items to shopping at the right time for discounts and deals. By taking these steps before starting the project, you’ll have more money in your pocket for other things like new furniture or decorating!
1) Use color wisely.
Paint is one of the affordableest ways to transform your kitchen and gives you an opportunity to be creative and playful with color.
If you’re using a small amount of paint, consider using different colors for adjacent walls [ex: one wall yellow and the adjacent wall blue]. This will make your room look larger than what it actually is.
2) Create storage solutions for every area of the kitchen.
One of the most common complaints about a kitchen is that there isn’t enough storage space for ingredients, appliances and kitchenware.
When designing your dream-kitchen, look into all possible areas that can be used to store items.
For example, instead of placing cabinets by the walls, why not place them in front of windows? This will add an extra splash of colour to your kitchen and maximize the amount of sunlight that you receive.
If you think this is an unusual idea, remember that a light-filled room creates a good atmosphere for cooking!
3) Be creative with furniture placement.
Your kitchen renovation project in Singapore will typically come with a completely new set of cabinets and countertops. If your old cabinets aren’t in the best shape, you could save money by having them removed and replaced.
To save even more on storage space, perform some creative furniture placement that will free up much-needed room for pots and pans or pantry items.
4) Prioritize appliances.
If your kitchen is in dire need of renovation, concentrate on the appliances you absolutely cannot live without.
You can save money by choosing to purchase second-hand appliances. If that is not an option for you, choose refurbished appliances instead of brand new ones.
5) Add some personal touches.
Whether it’s the choice of flooring or staining your cabinets, adding personal touches to your kitchen renovation can make it more comfortable and unique. For example, you could paint the walls with a colour that matches the decor. This is a small change that can make a big difference in how you feel in your kitchen.
6) Consider durable materials.
One of the most common ways to save money on a kitchen renovation package is to choose durable materials that require less maintenance over time.
Laminated countertops are an excellent example, as they usually have a life expectancy of 10 years, compared to the average stone surface’s 30-year lifespan.
Laminated surfaces also maintain their luster without having to be resurfaced. Granite and marble is another good example, as they don’t require sealing and can last a lifetime without having to be replaced.
However, these surfaces are also susceptible to stains and scratches that will require professional resurfacing.
Another option that can be used in conjunction with laminated surfaces is a non-porous surface that is also 100% waterproof, such as Corian.
Aside from being extremely durable, these materials are also easy to clean and require little maintenance over time.
7) Take advantage of natural light.
Use glass or transparent cabinets to make the most of available natural light. This will also brighten up your kitchen, which is especially useful if you have a relatively dark space.
8) Remember the details.
While your kitchen renovation is happening, don’t forget to stay on top of details like replacing cabinet hardware and collecting old appliances.
The replacement of hardware can make a huge difference in the appearance of your cabinets while you save money on buying new ones altogether.
Collecting your old appliances can be sold at second-hand stores or given to others who may need them.
9) Budget wisely.
Of course, you can spend as much money as you want on your kitchen renovation. But if you aim for the most expensive items on Ovon Design’s catalog and leave out everything else, expect to pay more than twice the price.
To make sure that you get what’s worth your money, focus first on big-ticket items such
