HOW TO SELECT YOUR NEW CABINETRY BASED ON YOUR BUDGET
Cabinetry makes the statement in any kitchen remodel. In being so, it takes a big portion of your kitchen remodeling budget. When doing an assessment of my clients’ needs, we discuss space, functionality, design, and more importantly, the budget for their kitchen remodeling. Budget is very important in making the decision on which finish materials to use, which will then determine the level of expertise required to install these materials. A common phrase that we hear in this industry is “it all comes down to the dollars and cents.” A good designer and contractor when equipped with the knowledge of their clients’ budget will be able to narrow down the selection of the finish materials, maximizing it that it will still be able to deliver the functionality of such materials. There is always room for give and take in the cost of your cabinets. Prioritizing what is a must followed by areas where we can have flexibility is a good start. It is important to know the reason behind why certain cabinets cost more than others. Below is a guide that can help you get a better understanding of what you are planning to purchase. It will help you ask your designer and contractor the right questions so that you can make the best decision for your home.
