Have you put off that kitchen renovation project long enough? Here are some questions and answers concerning a budget wise kitchen remodel.
Q: What are some ways to improve a kitchen, without a huge remodel?
A: Your kitchen is still functional, just unattractive or out-of-date. Everything still works, but is ugly and old. To brighten up a kitchen, paint it and change the light fixtures. Or consider under cabinet lighting and a backsplash. Refinishing or refacing cabinets is another economical idea that rejuvenates the kitchen and takes much less time and money than replacing the cabinets.
Q: Is it possible to replace the kitchen cabinets without replacing the countertop?
A: Refacing cabinets doesn’t result in big changes to size or layout. If you like your countertop, refacing the cabinets may be the way to go. You will get new doors and drawers installed and a matching veneer on the exposed sides of cabinets.
Q: Do you have tips to make a kitchen eco-friendly without denting the budget too badly?
A: Eco-friendly kitchen remodeling does not have to be more expensive. In fact, reusing the same cabinets is a greener alternative than replacing them, and it is far less expensive. When refinishing cabinets, using a green certified paint or stain is also an alternative. With countertops – granite is a stone, which is a green material.
