Where to Spend on a Kitchen Remodel

If you are planning a kitchen remodel, you may be trying to figure out exactly where you should spend your money. After all, you want to get the most bang for your buck and spend your dollars on things that are going to make the most difference for your kitchen. You also do not want to waste money on things that are unnecessary and end up with a subpar result. Here is where you should spend the bulk of your money on your kitchen remodel.

  1. Countertops


Very few items in a renovated kitchen can have as much of a positive impact as a beautiful countertop. Whether you go with granite, quartz, concrete, or something else, there are few things that can improve your kitchen more than a gorgeous countertop. We recommend allotting a significant portion of your kitchen remodeling budget to your countertops. Once they are put in, you will understand exactly why make this recommendation to our customers.


  1. Cabinets


Cabinets are another item that has a major impact on the overall look of your kitchen. Cabinets also generally represent the largest expense on kitchen remodels. So, yes, you should designate a large portion of your budget to the cabinets. However, this doesn’t mean that you necessarily have to go with top-of-the-line custom cabinets. There are other options that will still get you the look you are going for without breaking the bank.


  1. Appliances


Having modern, beautiful appliances can make a tremendous amount of difference in your kitchen when it comes to overall aesthetic appeal. So, if you have an outdated refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, etc., then you should put some of your kitchen renovation budget into buying new appliances. We can recommend some excellent appliances to you if you do not know which ones to get.


  1. Hardware


Hardware is another thing that people really notice when they come into your kitchen. Hardware includes knobs, handles, and pulls. Good hardware will help to make your kitchen pop. It is almost like jewelry for your kitchen. The nice thing about hardware is that it is not nearly as expensive as other items in your kitchen, so, you won’t have to spend a ton of money to get some extremely high-quality pieces. After you choose the right hardware and have it installed, you may be surprised just how gorgeous it makes your kitchen look.


  1. Lighting



Better lighting can not only improve the light quality in your kitchen, it can also go a long way toward making your kitchen more visually impressive. The right light fixtures can have a tremendous positive impact on your kitchen. There are countless options available for new light fixtures. If you want to get ones that complement the rest of your kitchen perfectly, then you should consult with a designer who can give you a professional opinion.
