It’s no secret to homeowners that carrying out a kitchen remodel is one of the most expensive home remodeling projects you can undertake. Planese is always looking for ways to help homeowners save money when they remodel while not compromising on what they want, as it is also essential that you get exactly what you’re looking for when you start a remodel. One of the simplest and most effective ways to save when you remodel your kitchen is to use pre-built kitchen cabinets instead of custom made ones.
The modern trend in remodeling is to strive to everything custom made and unique to your home and your home only. It’s great to want to be as individual as possible in your remodeling design, but making the decision to have everything designed and made bespoke is going to severely inflate your kitchen remodel cost.
Anything that’s mass-produced will probably be less expensive than something custom designed, but that doesn’t mean you have to install a generic looking kitchen. Pre-built cabinets come in a wide range of materials, styles and paint colors, and will usually have the option to customize them with a choice of handles, knobs and doors.
Aside from the aesthetics of buying pre-built cabinets, they can be cheaper to install as they tend to come in a standard size and are designed to fit together quickly and easily. Yourself or your own contractor should be able to install them, whereas custom made cabinets often have to be fitted by workers from that particular manufacturer.
There are of course many other factors to take into account when you calculate the cost of your kitchen remodel, such as what type of materials you will use and whether you are able to do any of the work yourself. But using pre-built kitchen cabinets is a good place to start when you’re looking to save on your kitchen remodel costs.
