Kitchen Remodel thoughts

 

Great ideas to consider before starting a kitchen remodel. I really enjoyed the summarized info on all types of cabinets from the link the RTA web-site. 

 

Original content by Rono Williams

Planning for a kitchen remodeling is hectic. There is a lot that you have to consider to have a successful project. Despite the many considerations, you have to sit back and plan for the project. Don’t start such a project without a clear plan.

Whether you have settled on ready-to-assemble RTA kitchen cabinets or not, you need to have a budget. Budgeting is the most important step in your plan for remodeling.

Importance of budgeting for a kitchen remodeling project

Here are some of the reasons why you must budget for a project before you start:

Budgeting gives you an idea of how much the project will cost

Helps you to identify areas that require more money. You can adjust such areas to suit your needs

Helps you get the best materials at the best price.

There are many other reasons why you need to budget before you start shopping for RTA kitchen cabinets or other installations for your kitchen.

Tips for budgeting

Here are valuable tips that you can use to budget for your next kitchen remodeling project:

Work with a professional

On top of the list of valuable tips that you should follow when budgeting is working with a professional. This is where the difference will be made. It is easy to think that hiring a professional will be costly. But the contrary is likely to be true.

When you work with a professional, you are likely to get valuable insights that can help you get the best kitchen remodeling items at the best price. For example, instead of buying pre-made cabinetry, professionals may recommend high-quality RTA kitchen cabinets. This way, you will be saving a lot of money.

Consider the whole project

When budgeting, you need to have a reflective approach. You should consider the overall cost of remodeling as opposed to the cost of materials only.

Have an open budget

You should create a budget that is open to changes. Don’t be too strict with your budget. You might miss an important kitchen item simply because you don’t have a flexible budget. When buying RTA kitchen cabinets, you might want to have a slightly flexible budget that allows you to get the best variation within your budget range. 

Don’t be too rigid with your budget. The budget should work for you and not the other way.

Steffy, I remodeled my last home's kitchen, and great information to share.   My current kitchen needs a bit of an update, but need to finish my master bath first.

Hi Joan Cox , master bathroom remodels are always very interesting to me, too. I am sure you are adding a large walk-in closet, with natural light, and making it functional, pretty and convenient. I will be delighted to see photos when you complete it.

Morning Steffy, I already have a large walk-in closet, but down the road an organizer would be nice in there too.  I did post photos of what I have accomplished so far this morning.

Steffy Hristova - That article you shared is very helpful! Budgeting is one thing, being cheap is another. One or or another, there is nothing cheap that makes a kitchen more functional and valuable, especially for resale. I enjoyed reading the article very much and I want to take a moment to wish you a very Happy New Year!

We spent more than we anticipated for our kitchen remodel, but it was worth it. We love it so much and spend a lot of time in it.
