PLANNING A BUDGET KITCHEN RENOVATION
Updated: Jan 5
With our tight budget, each decision we have made has been very mindful, since every dollar has to count! There are lots of things to consider when planning a kitchen renovation on a budget (whatever your budget may be).
Regardless of how large or small your household budget is, it’s a good idea to have a general idea of how much you want to spend before you get started on your kitchen renovation. Even seemingly simple projects, like repainting cabinet faces, can get out of hand really quickly! If you have no idea how much your dream renovation will cost, you could plan the financial aspect of it backwards.
Remodeling your kitchen — or what is often referred to as the ‘heart of the home’ — may be one of the best investments you’ll make as a homeowner. An aesthetically appealing and functional kitchen can add tremendous value to your home. The kitchen has evolved into space for more than just cooking – it’s a space for hosting, entertaining, and gathering.
A kitchen is a room or part of a room used for cooking and food preparation in a dwelling or in a commercial establishment. A modern middle-class residential kitchen is typically equipped with a stove, a sink with hot and cold running water, a refrigerator, and worktops and kitchen cabinets arranged according to a modular design. Many households have a microwave oven, a dishwasher, and other electric appliances.
The main functions of a kitchen are to store, prepare and cook food (and to complete related tasks such as dishwashing). The room or area may also be used for dining (or small meals such as breakfast), entertaining and laundry. The design and construction of kitchens is a huge market all over the world.
