Ever wanted to remodel your kitchen but you weren’t sure what it would cost or what would be the most effective way to get an up to date transitional look without having to spend a fortune? Laminate wood flooring is very cost efficient for the floor. Shaker style kitchen cabinets in white gray or espresso will update the kitchen significantly. With this look, id personally recommend white subway tile. They never go out of trend plus are very affordable giving a luxurious clean and open feeling look in your kitchen. Granite as an option for the countertop, is the most price effective product out of the bunch. Coming pre-sealed from the supplier, you can seal your granite once every year or two to make sure it’s further resistant to any stains since it is a natural stone. From personal experience, I’ve had no issues and never sealed my granite. Maybe I’m just more careful than others. Lighting is very important in the kitchen. In the best circumstance, you can even have lights applied to your kitchen cabinets but this would be very costly. Having recessed lights installed in your ceiling is probably the best option. They will provide strong enough light in the kitchen. Hiring the right staff to renovate your kitchen is also very important when it comes to doing it under a budget. Make sure to get as many estimates as you can before signing a contract. Cheapest doesn’t always mean you’ll end up paying the lowest price. A very important point is to make sure, your contractor has a good reputation of his work and is recommended by others. You can visit variety of comparison or review websites to find the best option for you. Everything pretty much comes down to smart decision making. Be patient, don’t rush, make smart decisions and all should be well!
