When most people consider remodeling, they’re hesitant. Will it take too long? What if it disrupts things? Is there a way to remodel my kitchen easily and without breaking the bank?

Though some remodels can certainly be expensive – not to mention a huge undertaking – they don’t all have to be. In fact, there are four steps you can take to make a kitchen remodel easier, more efficient and, most importantly, more affordable.

Want to remodel your kitchen but aren’t quite ready to pull the trigger? Here’s what you’ll want to do:

Make a tick list.

What are the problems you have with your current kitchen? What bothers you? What would you like to see changed? Does it lack storage space? Does it have an inconvenient layout? Are the counters just ugly and an eyesore? Make a tick list of all your major concerns and rank them in order of importance.

Set your budget.

What can you afford to put toward the project? What can you pay outright and what would you be able to pay monthly over time if you were to finance? Look at your finances and set these numbers in stone. They will determine which problems on your tick list you can address, as well as what products and materials you can use.

Find the right partner.

Do your research when choosing your remodeler. Make sure they can keep to your budget and ideal timeline, and verify that they’re experienced and well-reviewed. You will also want to look for someone local, so you can pick out your materials and fixtures in person, and if you think you’ll need to finance your project, make sure the remodeler you choose offers that option (as many don’t!)

Review your project specs before kick-off.

After you’ve met with your remodeler and outlined your project specs, go to their showroom and see all the materials and fixtures in person. Make sure you’re happy with the products, their quality, and their features, and see everything with your own two eyes before moving forward.  If you’ve chosen the right remodeler, they should be able to take it from there.
