Are you “dreaming of a White Kitchen”? Is your kitchen stuck in a decade far, far away and you’re craving a new, modernized look? It’s an exciting step to take. Revamping any one of your living spaces can be great for the mind and a change in perspective. However, with the holiday season upon us and the uncertainty the pandemic has brought to many, you may be hesitant about embarking on a kitchen reno. In the spirit of this wonderful season of giving, we wanted to share these helpful tips. Let us help you save some cash, wherever possible, in your new custom kitchen!
Keep your existing cabinetry (if possible). If your cabinets are still in good shape, and the style is something you enjoy, resurfacing and painting is a great option to help bring new life into the space. Resurfacing and painting make for a beautiful and cost-effective option! Just ensure you or the person doing it take the necessary steps to ensure the job is done right, and strive for that perfect finish.
Open things up. Another option is to consider installing some open shelving. Shelves are generally inexpensive, and it’s incredibly easy to match them to your kitchen’s style. You may be pleasantly surprised with the results! Open shelving produces a very light and airy feel reminiscent of a high-end commercial kitchen.
Think about doing your kitchen remodel at different stages. There’s no shame in waiting to do a few projects later on. Aspects of your kitchen reno such as putting in backsplashes, adding glass to your cabinet doors, or changing out hardware can all ostensibly be done at a later date.
Consider a less expensive Countertop. Granite and quartz are beautiful, durable options to give your kitchen an impressive and unique look. However, if you’re on a budget, this may not be the right choice for you at this time. Opt for laminate! Laminate has come a long way from the days of old with modern, highly detailed selections. A great way to get the look of stone for less.
Don’t move your appliances. If you’re eager to get some stunning new cabinets, consider keeping your appliances where they are: moving the mechanics and electrical for appliances can add up fast, not to mention walls may need to be cut into to expose the mechanicals. It’s the old saying, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
Last but not least: consider financing. At Hawthorne Kitchens Kingston, we now offer financing options that can make the kitchen of your dreams extremely attainable, regardless of your situation.
