How to Save Money on a Kitchen Remodel?

Kitchen is the most popular room in the house, and renovating it will create more comfort in your home and raise its value. The only thing is that full kitchen remodeling is very expensive. In today’s post we are sharing a few tips on how to do do renovations on a budget.

Reface Your Cabinets

If your cabinets are in good shape, and the drawers and shelves are in mint condition, then you don’t need custom cabinetry. If you are on a tight budget, consider refacing your cabinets. It allows you to give your kitchen a makeover on a budget, and usually involves adding new doors and drawer fronts and adding veneer covers or staining them with wood stain. It will save you thousands of dollars and a lot of time and effort.

Install Laminate Countertop

To create beauty and comfort on a budget, consider adding laminate countertops. They are inexpensive and can be installed in one day. Some can even be placed over the existing, which makes your job even easier.


There are many types of DIY backsplash on the market that do not require a lot of manual work and are easily cut and glued to the wall. One of the most affordable options is a beadboard backsplash. It’s easy to install and lasts for a long time. 

Buy Used or Refurbished Appliances

Look into used or refurbished appliances on Craigslist, eBay, or Facebook Marketplace. Make sure things like the refrigerator or a microwave are in working condition. With used appliances, expect them to look a little less than perfect, but don’t worry about little dents or scratches. A dented or slightly scratched refrigerator can save you a lot of money, and serve you for a long time.

Purchase Used or Refurbished Tools and Accessories

Carefully chosen lighting, tools or even hardware will make your kitchen even more stylish. Buying used or refurbished accessories off Craigslist, eBay, Facebook Marketplace or Amazon is always a great idea. Also, check for interesting items at thrift stores or garage sales.
