If you are planning a kitchen remodeling project, you have probably confronted a seemingly endless variety of options - from kitchen cabinets to appliances to exhaust systems. The choices can be overwhelming and costly. Answering a few basic questions, before you consider your upgrades, can help you save time and money:1. How much space do you have to install new kitchen cabinets?
To begin, determine how many kitchen cabinets you actually need. To do so, simply count the cabinets you already have. Do not worry about specifications. Most kitchen cabinets are built to a standard width, height, and depth. (Width-24"; Hight-34.5"; Depth-24").
If you intend to maintain the same kitchen layout, you do not need to worry about extra professional expenses. However, if you plan to create a new kitchen layout, you will require professional assistance. If you want to change the position of your gas range, for example, an electrician will have to reconnect all your gas pipes and electrical wires. Changing the position of your refrigerator or dishwasher also requires professional assistance, as only a certified plumber can reconnect water pipes. Below are a few examples of common kitchen layouts.
Choosing new kitchen appliances can be the most exciting part of your kitchen remodeling project. Cost, of course, depends on the brand and features - but don't forget, certain appliances, like those mentioned above, will need to be installed by a professional, and you should include this installation fee in your kitchen appliance budget.
Beyond changing your kitchen layout or choosing new appliances, you might also replace your laminated floor with tile or hardwood, or install a kitchen island with a sink in the middle of your kitchen. New floors can add a touch of luxury to your kitchen, and a kitchen island can transform the space into a communal spot for friends and family. It might surprise you to learn that both of these options can be included in your project without breaking the bank.
Once you have a remodeling plan, you can begin to calculate your prices. For kitchen cabinets, you can browse many brands at price-points, and even get an installation estimate, at your local Home Depot: www.homedepot.com or Lowes store. www.lowes.com. But don't purchase your product from these companies; both are too expensive! Instead, seek the trusted help of a private home remodeling company:
A private remodeling company will never charge for an estimate, and most private remodeling companies include installation costs in the remodeling project. You won't have to worry about product delivery, or all the other minor difficulties that may arise during your project. With a private remodeling company, your project can be as simple as choosing your kitchen layout and the color and finish of your cabinetry!
