Thinking of remodeling your kitchen? If so, there are ways to keep the costs down but still achieve the effect of a brand new kitchen. One of the most recommended ways to cut costs in kitchen remodeling is to keep the cabinets.
High-end, custom cabinetry quickly sends a kitchen remodeling budget into the red zone. Keep the cabinets you already have -- or keep just their shells and reface them -- and you'll knock thousands of dollars off your renovation. Refinishing or refacing cabinets takes some time and effort, so be prepared to put in a weekend on the job. Even seriously unsightly cabinets can look current and expensive with a fresh coat of paint or stain and new knobs.
