One of the most expensive rooms of your house to remodel is the kitchen. However, it also provides the biggest return on your investment. Whether your goal is to remodel the kitchen for your own benefit, or if you plan on selling your home in the near future, it is possible to do a beautiful kitchen remodel in Swansea, MA on a budget when you save money by investing in South Coast kitchen cabinets at Cabinet Factory Outlet. You can also save time and money by doing much of the work yourself. When you do a DIY (do-it-yourself) project and go at your own pace, you will also avoid all of the pitfalls that often come with a kitchen remodel, such as losing the use and function of your kitchen for months on end.
Create a Design Plan
Get started on your DIY kitchen remodel by creating a complete design plan for your new kitchen. Absolutely everything should be included in your initial plan, such as the location of the appliances to the way you want the cabinet doors to open, as well as any other construction that needs to be done. You can reduce costs by using the existing configuration while making strategic changes that will help your kitchen to be more functional and efficient. Specialty cabinets, such as appliances garages and spice drawers, can be added to your existing layout in locations that are convenient to food prep and storage.
Consider hiring a professional designer to help with the layout. Even if you end up doing the labor yourself, having the insight of a kitchen designer with a solid reputation can be a huge advantage. Find out how much a consultation and design will cost and determine whether or not you can afford to do it. Keep all of the plumbing and electrical work in the same location to save money on hiring professionals to relocate outlets and access, so you can use the savings to work with a designer for the best possible results.
Purchase the Materials
Your next step should be to visit our cabinet outlet in Southeastern Massachusetts to purchase your new cabinets, flooring and other fixtures. In addition to our beautiful line of Swansea kitchen cabinets, cupboards and specialty options, we also have flooring, countertops, hardware and more. It helps to be able to see all of the materials together to get an idea of how it will all work together. You can save a considerable amount of your total bill for materials cost when you shop our South Coast kitchen cabinets at Cabinet Factory Outlet.
Choose from a wide range of designs, styles and colors of our quality, all wood cabinets. Get the materials you want at the price you want to pay ahead of time and then store them in a garage, extra room or storage facility until you are ready to install them. Remove your old cabinets and cupboards to save on labor costs and then either install your new Swansea kitchen cabinets yourself or hire a professional to do it for you. Either way, once you have the materials that you need for the project, you can hang onto them until you are ready to dive in and get the job done. This is a huge advantage over working with a project coordinator or single contractor who will want to do the installation on their timetable – not yours.
Other ways to save while doing a kitchen remodel in Swansea, MA include:
- replacing the appliances at a later date if yours are still in working condition – wait for a holiday or end-of-year sale to get the refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and other appliances you really want at a discounted rate
- consider having light fixtures replaced when you can afford it instead of as part of the cabinet installation; you can hire an electrician to come out and re-wire or install as necessary, but until then you can save money by reusing the existing fixtures
- flooring can also be done separately from the cabinet installation, however delaying this may affect how your cabinets are installed; find out if your existing cabinets are on top of flooring or if they were installed directly on the slab so you’ll know what to expect
