Thinking of starting some HOME improvements?

If you’re thinking about investing in home improvements, but you don't want to break the bank, then one of the first areas you should look at is the kitchen. Your kitchen is a gathering place for your family and friends and where you spend the most time cooking, cleaning, and eating. You'll get the most enjoyment out of your home when you invest in the space you spend a majority of your time in so here are some kitchen remodeling tips when staying within a budget.

  • PAINT and save on cabinets. New cabinetry can account for between 30% and 40% of your kitchen remodel costs and that's on the low end. So if you’re happy with their location and functionality, but the finish is dark or dull, consider painting them instead of replacing them.

  • Splurge on a quality FAUCET. The faucet is the hardest working part of the kitchen, so go for quality and convenience—meaning a premium brand and single-handle operation.

  • Keep character and functionality in mind when choosing a BACKSPLASH Think of the section of wall between the countertop and the cabinets as a canvas where you can express your personality. It's such a wonderful opportunity to reflect your design style.

  • Create a spreadsheet for your BUDGET and check it often. Put your budget and how much you’re spending on a spreadsheet so you can keep tabs on how much you project is actually costing you. If you see a cost overrun starting to happen, you can then adjust it in other areas.

  • Think about wood-look flooring alternatives. Wood offers natural, traditional beauty, but it scratches, dents, and wears under kitchen conditions. Easy-to-clean porcelain tile comes in a wide range of designs, including convincing stone and wood looks, but most things that drop on porcelain will break so it’s worth considering other softer alternatives too.
