One of the most rewarding and challenging aspects of interior design is making sure you are getting the most bang for your buck. A lot of times finding ways to shave off the costs of little things here and there, can open up resources to splurge on larger, more important things.
Kitchen and bathroom remodels aren't cheap, but if you know what you are doing, and you play your cards right, nothing is nonachievable! Clearly, planning is key. Here are some areas you should focus on when making those plans:
The main thing here is to be completely honest with yourself. Get your ducks in a row, find out how much you realistically can spend on your remodel, and use that as a jumping off point for your plans. Once you know how much you can spend, you can start to make your plans, and begin to find areas where cuts can be made, and others that can be padded out the money you save.
We've all heard the saying, "Measure twice, cut once", but it definitely extends beyond measuring! Make sure you take the time to make sure everything is right before pulling the trigger on anything. Make sure all of your materials are accounted for, your schedules are tight, yet reasonable, and that all of your contractors are on the same page. There’s nothing worse than surprises, when you're hip-deep in a remodel!

On its face, this might seem like a shamelessly self-promoting thing to say, but it's true. Interior designers are skilled at making sure you get the most holler for your dollar. If you really want to ensure that you get the best looking kitchen or bathroom remodel possible, you need someone on your side that is skilled in navigating those waters.
Don't take our word for it, though! The Internet is loaded with advice from people doing remodeling projects that will tell you the same things we are saying here. In the end, you will save a lot of time, hassle, and money by hiring a professional designer to coordinate your project. Facts are facts!
