One of the best things about remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, is that you have a rare opportunity to completely revitalize the look and functionality, of some of the most important rooms in your home. Unfortunately, this opportunity often comes with a hefty dose of sticker shock. The average kitchen renovation cost in the U.S. is $22,590, and a top-end remodel can run as much as $55K or more!
Since it is such an expensive, yet important, process, it is important to find as many ways as possible to trim the costs, and keep your renovation project within your budget. Luckily, the interior design team at David Waller Interiors has more than a few tricks up their sleeves, to help reduce the costs of your remodel, and we'd like to share a few of them with you!
Here are three pro-tips to help you save a little cash on your big kitchen or bathroom remodel:
One of the most important aspects of any remodeling job, is making sure you are honest with yourself about your budget. One of the big reasons why this is true, is because interest can add a pretty hefty amount to your overall renovation bill over time.
One of the quickest ways to see your costs mount, is to take out a loan, or pay for your materials or labor with a credit card that you can't immediately pay off. Interest is your worst enemy!
Pay With a Card That Has Benefits
This might sound contrary to the previous tip, but you can avoid mounting interest by paying off your card as soon as the bill arrives. If you are in a position to do so, using a card with some sort of points system or incentives, can be a great way to save money, or get added value from your remodeling expenses, as long as you can pay it off immediately!
Using this trick, you could pay for your remodel and get a nice family vacation out of the deal, if you play your cards right!
Hire a Professional Designer
We know that this probably seems like shameless self-promotion on our part, but the fact of the matter is that the money-saving benefits of hiring a professional designer for your project, are well documented. Don't take our word for it, though! Google it!
If you do, you'll find that designers know how to trim costs, efficiently organize labor, and strike the proper balance between high and low-end materials, to achieve striking results from your kitchen or bathroom remodel.
