We don’t all live in our « forever home » at the moment. Some of us are just starting out or starting over while others know they want to move up or move away. Whatever scenario fits for you, the team at Floor Craft Sanding has some great recommendations to help you improve your kitchen on a budget.
Set the Budget and Scope of Work
First things first. Decide how much you are willing to spend to upgrade a house that you will not be living in for the long haul. Consider what you can live with in your kitchen and what you simply can’t stand. Also consider the fact that remodeled bathrooms, kitchens and flooring have the greatest impact when selling a home so this is also a longer-term investment.
Does the whole space need a complete overhaul or are there simple changes that would make an impact? When working with a budget, you will have to set priorities and stick to them. A few ideas to help you along the way:
- Instead of replacing the cabinets, have them repainted or resurfaced.
- Instead of installing new wood flooring, have the floors professionally refinished.
- Instead of rewiring the whole kitchen or putting in pot lights, update the light fixtures.
- Instead of hiring a contractor for every little detail, do some of the work yourself and hire a professional for the tasks that require training and highly-honed skills.
It is possible to upgrade your kitchen on budget. With good planning, watching for specials, and some creativity, achieving a high-end look at a low price point can be definitely be done.
