Do you want a new, trendy and current kitchen but your budget is tight? The kitchen of your dreams might not be so out of reach as you think. Discover all the tips to reduce your kitchen costs and save money.
Whether in terms of equipment or the materials used for your furniture, there are many possibilities to reduce your costs. So, it is necessary to plan your budget and study all the options available to you.
# 1: GO FOR A PREFABRICATED, MODERN AND TRENDY KITCHEN
Much less expensive than custom-made kitchens made by specialists, prefabricated kitchens are no less aesthetic or functional. Indeed, prefabricated kitchens have improved a lot in recent years and now you can expect to have a kitchen that is trendy, in the age of time. In addition to being available at very affordable prices, they are also very easy to assemble.
# 2: A JUDICIOUS AND INGENIOUS LAYOUT
To make the most of your savings, consider the layout of your kitchen. Indeed, if you favor a linear arrangement you will pay less than if you choose an arrangement with complex shapes, with fitted corner furniture that cost much more. Thus, it is preferable to bet on a layout in length and even on a central island if your room offers you enough space.
# 3: USE MELAMINE FOR YOUR KITCHEN CABINETS
For your cabinets, for example, melamine and thermoplastic are materials that allow you to save money while benefiting from trendy and modern cabinets. Do you dream of beautiful wooden wardrobes but you don't have the budget? Melamine and thermoplastic offer remarkable imitations of wood, which will allow you to have the charm of the latter without breaking the bank.
These materials also offer many possibilities for customization. This is because melamine cabinets are available in different colors and the same goes for thermoplastic. Patterns, graphics, finishes ... you can create the visual you want to match the style of your kitchen.
# 4: CHOOSE A LAMINATE KITCHEN COUNTER
When it comes to kitchen counters, laminate and granite are great options that will give you great value for your money. Indeed, laminate has the advantage of imitating natural stone very well and giving the effect of a modern and designer kitchen. Despite its low cost, it is a sturdy material although less resistant than granite. For a slightly higher but still reasonable budget, granite offers a very beautiful aesthetic appearance.
# 5: BET ON RECOVERY
In addition to saving you a lot of money, recovery is also a very popular trick this year. Indeed, it is a simple and judicious way to give personality to your kitchen with elements that you have refreshed. You can, for example, repaint your sideboard or your table in a trendy color to give them a facelift.
The same goes for your kitchen cabinets. In addition, it is important not to overlook the details. Don't hesitate to change their handles and opt for new handles that will change the style of your cabinets and have a real impact on the look of your kitchen. Also consider going to garage sales, you will be surprised at the number of authentic little wonders that can sometimes be found there.
# 6: CHOOSE STANDARD APPLIANCES
Appliances are also expensive items to consider when budgeting for the kitchen. If you want to save money, we advise you to opt for standard devices, which are much less expensive since they are manufactured in large quantities.
When it comes to your oven, it is best to choose a multifunction oven that offers you a multitude of possibilities for cooking your dishes. However, avoid ovens with pyrolysis cleaning which are generally very expensive since they consume a lot of electricity.
# 7: AN ENERGY-SAVING BAKING PLATE
For your hob, prefer hobs with three hotplates. Indeed, this type of plate is much cheaper than those with four hearths. And, let's be honest, it's usually rather difficult to use all four fireplaces at the same time. For the ventilation system, choose a recycling hood, much less expensive than a hood with a duct and more practical if you live in an apartment.
