Remodelling from time to time is essential to ensure the room stays not only functional but also features the latest trendy designs. Moreover, it gives you an opportunity to detect all the underlying damages and repair or replace them. This helps to prevent the damages from spreading and save the money required for those repairing expenses. However, you must always keep in mind that the remodelling is not only inexpensive but also enhances the functionality of the space.
The kitchen is one of the most expensive rooms in the house, given the number of fixtures and appliances installed. Hence, remodelling your modular kitchen design can prove to be quite expensive. If you do not want to make a lot of expenses for remodelling the kitchen, here are a few tips that will surely help you to save money:
01 of 05 Change the kitchen appearance just by adding trim
You will be amazed to see what wonders trim can do in cabinets. This is one of the best ways to give your modular kitchen design a brand-new look without spending a lot of money. Although you must hire a carpenter to add the new trim, you will be saving thousands of rupees by reusing your old cabinets. Moreover, you will find various designs, styles, patterns, and colours available in the market. Hence, you will not find difficulty in finding an option that perfectly blends in with the kitchen interior decor design. Depending on your needs, you can add both crown moulding trim and under-trim to transform the look of your kitchen interiors.
02 of 05 Replace old kitchen hardware with new ones
Whether you are replacing your old cabinets or just refurbishing them, you can always consider installing new hardware. Do not just stay limited to replacing your cabinet hardware. Replace your old kitchen hardware and choose more stylish and appealing options that help to reduce waste. This will help to enhance the visual appeal of your kitchen interiors and make them more functional without spending a lot of money.
03 of 05 Convert a table instead of buying a kitchen island
Kitchen islands have become very popular in most modern kitchen designs. This is because they help to add more storage options in the kitchen and increase its functionality. If you getting a house renovation and planning to install a kitchen island, consider converting a table to a kitchen island instead of buying one from the market to save more money. Although you must make additional expenses to convert the table into a kitchen island, it will surely prove to be a lot less than the price of an actual kitchen island. Also, you can choose an inexpensive finish material that can mimic the look of other expensive materials. If you have a small kitchen design, consider adding wheels to the table legs so that you can move it out of the kitchen when required.
04 of 05 Enhance its appeal with a backsplash
A kitchen backsplash is not only very essential to ensure that the kitchen can be cleaned easily and does not get very dirty but also enhance the visual appeal of the space. If you do not have a kitchen backsplash, adding one can completely transform the kitchen design. There are various options available while choosing the backsplash material for your kitchen walls. To keep it economical, keep the backsplash only 4 inches (the standard height) and choose an inexpensive material. Increasing the height may help to make the modular kitchen design more appealing but will increase the overall cost as well.
05 of 05 Do not change the existing kitchen layout completely
Do not change the existing layout of your kitchen design if you are happy with it. Talk to your contractor accordingly and ask the person to give your kitchen a fresh new update on the existing layout. This will surely help you to save a lot of money required for your house renovation. Moving the layout too much will consume more time and require additional effort, making it more expensive.
