Whether you are building a new kitchen from scratch or remodelling your old one, the fact remains that you will need quite a large sum of money for this project. Being one of the most important rooms in your home, you will be required to invest in quality appliances, cabinets, flooring, splashbacks, lighting, etc. These items can be quite expensive to purchase, so here are a few tips on how you can save money on a new kitchen.
When remodelling your kitchen, think long and hard before committing to any significant structural alterations. Although knocking down a wall will give you that big open plan kitchen you desire, it will cost you more money, especially if an architect has to be involved. Also, applying for planning permissions can be a long and expensive process, so check if you require planning permission with your local planning department before making any changes.
If you are working on a tight budget, reusing parts of your old kitchen will help you save money by spreading the cost over time. If you have perfectly working appliances, reuse them and slowly save up for new ones. The same case applies to your cabinets and worktops. Instead of throwing them out, think of how you can repurpose them in your new kitchen.
Repainting your cabinets is one of the most inexpensive yet dramatic ways to makeover your kitchen. If your cabinet drawers and doors are still in good condition, repaint them rather than buying new ones. Since you will be saving a lot of money, ensure that you get high-quality paint and painting tools for a flawless finish.
Adding a splashback makes a big aesthetic impact on your kitchen, and the best part is, it is very affordable. Genie splashbacks have cheap splashbacks for kitchens which come in a wide array of colours and patterns. They also allow you to create your own unique custom kitchen splashback using an image of your choice.
