4 Words That Can Cost You A Bundle When Remodeling

Keeping a handle on your budget when remodeling is important for any homeowner. And yet, there are four simple words that can blow a remodeling project’s budget right out of the water: “While you’re at it…”

As a homeowner, you may want to add “just one more thing” to the project. It may not seem like a big deal to move your kitchen sink six inches, but there are often many steps and costs involved in these little changes—especially once the project is underway.

We work hard to do a lot of planning on the project up front to minimize last-minute changes. We’ll help you guard against the “While you’re at it” temptation so we can keep your project on time and on budget!

When Planning Your Kitchen Remodel, These 4 Little Additions Can Make a Big Difference

You’ve heard that “the devil is in the details,” and that’s never truer than when you’re remodeling your kitchen. The littlest things sometimes make a huge difference in how much you’ll enjoy your kitchen. With that in mind, here are four steps you can take that will exponentially increase the joy you’ll get from your kitchen remodel.

1. Soft-Close Drawers

If you’re purchasing new cabinets for your kitchen, spend a few extra bucks (it’s really not that much money) to get soft-close drawers. There is something very soothing about drawers that close quietly.

2. Under Cabinet Lighting

You can never have too much light on your countertops. Installing under cabinet lighting is something you won’t regret. It’s so much easier to work (and find things in drawers). Make sure you spring for LEDs. They are much more affordable now and will save you money on your utilities.

3. Large Slide-Out Bottom Shelves

When picking out your bottom cabinets for your kitchen, think about large slide-out shelves instead of drawers. They make it so much easier to reach items in the back of your kitchen storage.

4. Hands-Free Faucets

When it’s time to choose the faucet for your new kitchen sink, it’s worth taking a look at hands-free faucets. They cost a bit more, but they really deliver value. No more wiping off your hands while you’re in the middle of preparing a meal in order to turn the water on.
