Only a small minority of homeowners undertake a massive kitchen remodel that entails gutting the room and starting from scratch. Since the kitchen is the most expensive and inconvenient room to renovate, it’s commonly tackled bit-by-bit. With careful planning and organization it’s possible to transform your space and budget costs and achieve that dream kitchen you envisioned.
Cabinetry: New cabinets are often the most expensive part of a kitchen remodeling project. However, they don’t need to be. If your cabinets are in good condition and are made of solid hardwood, then you should consider cabinet refacing or cabinet refinishing.
By stripping and refinishing your old cabinets or replacing the cabinet doors with new, your cabinets will have a brand new look. It is very possible to combine new doors and drawer fronts with refinishing cabinets for a totally new design.
Replace the countertops: Countertops can really change a kitchen. Granite countertops is an investment that will not be wasted. If you can't afford granite slab, consider granite tiles for your countertop instead. Instead of replacing the sink, consider changing the faucet for an updated look.
Flooring should be the last step: The most common mistake homeowners make in the planning process is prematurely replacing flooring. Resist the urge to replace flooring until the other renovations are complete.
