Every home remodeling project starts of a whole lot simpler than it ends. The most fun is always at the very beginning when you’ve come across a bunch of ideas that you like and you’re doing all that fantasizing about how your new bathroom or kitchen will look like. And the best part is that all of your ideas can come true. If you’ve seen it from other designs, then it is definitely possible right?
Yeah, well, except for one important aspect – budgeting. You don’t know what the budget was of the homeowners from whose design you took inspiration, but you certainly should know your budget. Sometimes, you just can’t chase your dreams of high-end tiles, faucets or other materials that you’ll need as that will go way over budget and it is better to remodel your home within your budget than not remodel it at all.
In this article, we’re going to try and help you make better budgeting decisions when you’re planning a remodel for your kitchen and bathroom. Oh yes, Kitchen Remodeling Orange County suggests the kitchen and bathroom be usually coupled in one project as they’re are more similar than you think in the sense that both are places that should work well with water and both are quite utilitarian.
Paint where you can
So you’ve decided to completely remodel your bathroom or kitchen but maybe what you actually need is a complete refresh of the space which does not always mean that you need to throw everything out and start from scratch. Your kitchen cabinets can look like new if you just simply give them a makeover using some paint. A little DIY can go a long way in keeping your budget within limits. Regardless of where you’re doing the remodel, kitchen or bathroom, the cabinets don’t have to be thrown out.
But cabinets are not the only part of your bathroom and kitchen that you can paint. You can also refresh the walls and even add some stripes with paint.
We’re all used to buying stuff online nowadays but for some reason, when it comes to buying cabinets, faucets, sinks and all of the other stuff that you are going to need for your new kitchen and bathroom, we seem to prefer shopping in person. Of course it has its advantages, I mean, you can physically see the items that you’re going to buy but you won’t have nearly the same chance of coming across a discount as you would if you were to browse online.
Hire a contractor
Wait a minute, hire a contractor? Yes, I know this is an article that is supposed to help you reduce costs and it might seem a little counterintuitive to suggest hiring a contractor but hiring one for a combined kitchen and bathroom project is actually a good way to save some money as the contractor will be much more prepared than you are for such a project. They will be able to calculate all of their needs for supplies and nothing will go to waste. Bathroom Remodel Orange County is there to meet all your home renovation needs with a dedicated team of professionals that do not cut corners.
