10 Oct 5 Secrets to Cost Saving Kitchen Design
Remodelling a kitchen is always a big job, but it doesn’t have to carry big costs, as well. We at HomeConcept want to make kitchen design accessible to all, with these 5 tips for cost saving kitchen design! Our tips will help you to customise your kitchen without breaking the bank, so that you can enjoy a beautiful kitchen without the stress. Read the blog below to learn more of our affordable kitchen hacks…
Stained Cabinets are Cheaper
Our first kitchen design tip is to opt for stained cabinets over their painted counterparts, as these are likely to require less maintenance in the long run, and come in at a more competitive price, too. Take a look at our Kitchen Colours page for a complete look at the colours of our cabinets and countertops!
Purchase Good Quality Cabinets
When it comes to cost saving kitchen design, do not skimp on the cabinetry! Although stained cabinets are usually more cost-effective, it is still important to purchase your cabinets from a reputable provider that uses high quality materials. This ensures that your kitchen cabinets enjoy a long lifespan and save you money on maintenance and replacements.
Make Your Own Backsplash
A backsplash is a quick and easy way to breathe new life into your kitchen, and it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. You can choose simple 4” by 4” tiles with a few accent colours, or choose subway tiles in a mix of colours to create an interesting focal point for your kitchen, that serves a purpose too. This low-cost customisation allows you to make your kitchen your own, without a huge price tag.
Go for Doors, Not Drawers
The cabinet doors of your dreams may be a little pricier than you expected, so you need a way to save a couple bucks throughout the process. One simple thing you can do is opt for more cabinet doors than drawers in your kitchen design. Drawer bases are more expensive than the standard base cabinets, so you could compromise and achieve the effect you wanted.
Cabinet Handles Make a Big Impact
A small, simple and super cost saving kitchen design tip is to simply change up your cabinet hardware! You can transform your kitchen into a fresher space by replacing old, boring handles with fresh, interesting alternatives. Decorative hardware will bring a different look and feel to your cabinets and drawers.
Carpenters vs. Custom Cabinet Specialist
Over and above the kitchen remodelling solutions that HomeConcept can offer you, we recommend asking a carpenter to help with additional storage requirements, as opposed to a cabinet specialist. Carpenters are very skilled and sometimes more cost-effective. Do your research before selecting a service provider!
