How to Budget for a Kitchen Remodeling Project
Many factors contribute to the total cost of a kitchen remodel.
For example, cabinets and appliances are among some of the biggest expenses, so making deliberate choices in these areas can have a significant impact on your kitchen remodeling budget. Also, anything that is custom-designed or special ordered also will likely increase your costs.
At Republic West Remodeling, we like to suggest some options that can help give you a look you want, no matter what your kitchen remodeling budget may be.
We provide every customer cost certainty
One of the biggest kitchen remodeling nightmares is discovering that the final cost of your remodel has little resemblance to the upfront cost initially presented when the contract was first signed. At Republic West Remodeling, we refer to this situation as “cost creep.” When your budget is handled incorrectly, it can causecost creep which becomes an absolute fact of your remodeling project.
We work diligently with our clients to detail an exact scope of work to execute for a mutually-agreed upon final design. Then, we provide a final cost for that scope of work. Without this level of detail and analysis, any quote given becomes a rough estimate only, leading to cost uncertainty. Here’s a peek at our process:
- Through listening and creative dialogue, we create a well-designed, fine-tuned, well defined and complete scope of work and always present it before contract signing and the expenditure of the first dollar.
- We utilize extensive attention to detail during the kitchen design process, so all costs determination is presented up front.
- We have great respect for budgets. This respect requires honest communication during the design process, so the balance between your dream and your budget can be met.
- We have a real understanding of actual (not estimated) costs, so when we offer a contract, the amount of the signed contract will be the same, or very close to, the cost at the conclusion of the project. The final cost will only change in cases where there is an agreement about a change to the scope of work.
- As we approach the second decade of the 21st century, more homeowners than ever are treating their kitchens as a popular place to congregate in their house. Modern floor plans favor open concepts that blend the kitchen with the living room, dining room, or great room. It’s more common for houseguests to gather around the kitchen island and chat with the hosts during meal prep, or for the kitchen-dining combo to be the best place to have a game night. In the past, kitchens were closed off and compartmentalized and treated like a workroom. The living room, dining room, and Read More
