You’ve been dreaming about getting your kitchen remodeled for a long time. Perhaps it’s something you’ve been putting off because you weren’t sure how much it was going to cost, or you didn’t think you could choose a time that would work well for your family. We’ve worked with a lot of homeowners, and when it comes to remodeling your Denver kitchen, it’s important to choose a company that will give you a great price, as well as perform the work in a timely manner.
Budgeting for a kitchen remodel is where many homeowners get stuck, so we thought we’d offer you a few steps to follow that will help you understand exactly what you want for the price you want to pay.
Step #1: Figure out the total you want to spend
This is where many homeowners make their first mistake. They have many ideas about what they want, but they don’t really know how much they have to spend. This can be kind of paralyzing for some, causing them to put their remodel on hold for a lot longer than they really want to. Check into your savings and your financing options, come up with a number you’re comfortable with, and stick with it. You’ll be a lot happier with your remodeling results if you do.
Step #2: Keep 20% of your budget aside for those unexpected surprises
Now that you have your total budget number in your mind, you’ll want to keep a portion of it aside for anything that might surprise you along the way. If you live in an older home, you never know what you might encounter when you start replacing your cupboards or start ripping up the floor. It’s better to be prepared, just in case you need that extra money along the way.
Step #3: Figure out your remodeling priorities
Are you thrilled about the idea of new appliances, or would you rather put in new cupboards and countertops to create more space in your kitchen? Having an idea of what your remodeling priorities are before you even begin talking to a contractor, will help you make those all-important decisions. It will also give an idea of the projects that really don’t matter to you as much, while allowing your contractor to give you suggestions for alternatives that will work within your space.
Once you have a good budgeting plan in place, it’s time to contact a qualified contractor to do the work for you. We would love to be the company you contact, and we’re eager to sit down with you and hear your ideas for your new kitchen. Our track record speaks for itself, and we promise, you’ll be amazed with the results.
