Not only will a kitchen renovation improve the functionality, design and aesthetics of your kitchen, it will also increase your home’s resale value and have a great return on investment. Read more on how minor kitchen renovations bring return on investment.
A kitchen renovation can also be one of the most expensive remodeling jobs you do in your house, but it doesn’t have to be. If you want to give your kitchen a new look, you don’t have to break the bank to create a beautiful, functional space. Elite Kitchens Inc. in Edmonton shares some kitchen renovation alternatives that will still give you the upgrade you’re looking for.
1. Reface your cabinets.
The kitchen cabinets will be the most expensive part of your kitchen renovation. You can save money by cabinet refacing instead of buying brand new cabinets. Cabinet refacing is when you keep your original cabinet boxes but replace your cabinet doors, drawer fronts, end panels or any other area of your cabinets that are exposed and by upgrading the hardware. You can do this as long as you already like the layout of your cabinets and your cabinet boxes are still in good shape. Cabinet refacing will give your kitchen an entirely new look at a fraction of the cost of installing brand new cabinets.
2. Refresh your countertops.
Are your countertops looking a little tired and out-of-date? Consider installing new laminate countertops. With the new high definition photo imaging laminate countertops, your counters will have the look of granite or other natural stone without the high price tag. Laminate has come a long way over the years and can mimic the look of stone, engineered quartz, wood and other high-end materials.
3. Save by doing the work yourself.
If you’re handy with tools and are a confident do-it-yourself, consider purchasing your new kitchen cabinets from Elite Kitchens, assembling and installing them yourself. They will prepare all of the components for you and have your entire project flat packed on a skid ready for assembly including doors, end panels, crown mold and kick base. Stain, lacquer and hardware are sold separately. You could also choose to purchase your cabinets assembly-ready and hire a handyman or contractor to build and install them for you.
