When you hear the words “kitchen remodel” you may be thinking it will cost thousands of dollars but that is not always the case. In fact, you can save some big bucks with these tips and still get a great looking kitchen.

Do It Yourself.
Doing the work yourself can save you some big bucks. If you can’t do it all then do what you can and hire a contractor for the rest. Or better yet if you have a family member or friend that can do it for less, hire them.

Update the Cabinets.
Instead of replacing the cabinets update them with a fresh coat of paint, wood stain or new hardware. This can help reduce the cost tremendously if your existing cabinets are in good condition. Sometimes a little TLC goes a long way.

Shop the Scrap/Returned Section.
Have you ever noticed that the back of the store at the end of the aisles are scrap and returned items? Sometimes people special order items or don’t use them all and they are marked at a lower price for a quick sale. You can find countertops, cabinets, sinks, etc. in these sections and most of the time the price is right.

Less is More.
Using fewer details is more and can help you save big bucks. Create an open space and broaden your horizons with open shelving, unique lighting and more.

Make a Plan.
Creating a detailed plan is a great way to get a vision and feel of what the kitchen remodel will look like. Make sure to stick with the plan to avoid going over your budget and keeping your vision.
