Thinking about remodeling your Rhode Island kitchen, but not sure if it’s worth the investment? Studies show that even minor remodeling that includes an upgrade with designer kitchen elements can make a difference. To figure out what needs to be replaced or remodeled in your existing kitchen, there are some basic questions you’ll need to answer. However, when it is time to upgrade your cabinets, make sure to visit the Cabinet Factory Outlet to see our full line of South Coast kitchen cabinets. Not only will you save hundreds compared to home improvement center or builder supply stores in the local area, but you will also gain access to top quality espresso, brown, white, and even cherry stained solid maple cabinetry designed to look great with any traditional or modern kitchen style.
Refreshing Your Kitchen Space
In the home improvement industry, the term “refresh” is used to make minor improvements that will extend the life of your current materials. This can be great for kitchens that are ten years old or less, but for older kitchens, especially with materials that are 20 years old or more, it might not be enough. Inspect your cabinets, countertops, appliances, and fixtures or consider having an inspection performed by a professional. Even designer kitchen cabinets will ultimately wear out over time and require replacement, so make sure you don’t waste your time and money on a refresh that won’t actually make a valued difference to the look or function of your Rhode Island kitchen.
Replacing Certain Elements
Another option is to “replace” a few things that need to be upgraded in the hopes that everything else will last until you are ready to remodel or renovate fully. Adding kitchen specialty cabinets and accessories that either match or complement the look and feel of your existing kitchen can be a big help. Choosing options from designer kitchen cabinets found at our Cabinet Factory Outlet can make replacing just a few things more affordable while providing you with the added storage space and accent pieces that you desire. Our South Coast kitchen cabinets include basic cabinetry, cupboards, islands, and accessories that can be mix and match, depending on the style of your existing kitchen.
Remodeling a Providence Kitchen
If your kitchen is 20 years old (or older), then it is probably time to fully remodel and replace everything with brand new classic white, modern espresso, or traditional cherry stained solid maple cabinetry. The good news is that home remodeling, and real estate experts agree that you will get the highest return on investment (ROI) for home improvement that includes a mid-range kitchen remodel. What that means is that a well-planned, smartly invested remodel that includes affordable designer kitchen cabinets and other materials will provide you with a greater value increase to your home than an over-the-top, highly expensive remodel.
Some of those crazy remodeling projects we see on television that feature all these crazy bells and whistles that might seem nice initially, yet provide very little function in real life, are actually a waste of money. Spending wisely, conservatively, and staying focused on your goals is the best way to increase value in your home without wasting money on things that don’t really matter. Stay away from expensive projects within your overall remodel that could end up costing you a lot more than you would expect, such as moving plumbing, gas lines or walls. Semi-custom designer kitchen cabinets that feature options for kitchen specialty cabinets and accessories can really help you to maximize your remodeling budget.
Hiring a Contractor
Should you hire a contractor to install your new South Coast kitchen cabinets? If you do not have any experience working with home remodeling, the answer is yes. While they may make it seem easy on television to install brand new designer kitchen cabinets, the truth is that there is a huge learning curve when it comes to hanging cupboards and properly installing base cabinets. Even small jobs, such as installing backsplash or putting in new countertops, can be a lot more complicated than those super experienced folks on television make it seem. Work with a contractor to figure out what things you can do to save money on labor, and which things should be done by a professional.
