Planning your kitchen can be one of the most exciting home improvement projects you can make. But if you’ve never done it before it can also be a little overwhelming. Where do you even start with a project this big? Well it’s all about knowing how much kitchen you can afford with the amount that you’re willing to spend.
Set a Clear Budget
It doesn’t have to be a hard number, in fact you are probably better off with a range, but make sure you have an upper and lower limit. The best way to do this is by talking with an experienced contractor and getting a quote by providing them with the size and expectations of your new kitchen. When it comes to a kitchen remodel, it is easy to get carried away with all the options, but remember that these can add up quickly and bump up your total costs quite a bit. It’s best to create a spreadsheet with each category so you know what is going where.
Make a Wish List
As you set your budget and outline your costs for each aspect of your new kitchen, you’ll start to realize you can’t have it all, or rather you just shouldn’t. It’s much better to come to this realization sooner rather than later. You deserve to get the kitchen that you want, not that your contractor thinks you should have. Creating a budget is one thing, but the next step is to list which parts of the kitchen are most important to you. For some it’s top notch stainless steel appliances, for others it might be more storage space and an entirely new floor plan to make that happen, yet for others it might be making sure their countertops are the utmost premium materials. The list goes on and from cabinet fixtures to paint and flooring. Making a wish list is really the best way to ensure you get what you wanted out of the kitchen remodel with no regrets.
