Cut the cost of a new kitchen: Smart ways to stretch your budget

If you’re planning a new kitchen, but are worried about the costs, there’s no need to get too stressed. Although a new kitchen isn’t exactly as cheap as a cup of coffee, you can do a few things to save your pennies here and there. So, this week, we shall discuss how you can cut the cost of a new kitchen with just a few simple changes!

Cut the cost of a new kitchen by reducing waste

Just because you no longer need your old kitchen does not mean that it should be thrown away. Many people sell their old kitchen materials to get some money back from the new materials they have purchased. What’s more, if you can get someone to collect the materials from you, you will save money on skip hire and disposal!

Be selective with your fittings

Not everyone can afford bespoke kitchen units for the entire room. Instead, you could consider using a central feature, such as an island. Then you can save money on other units by investing in more affordable alternatives.

Choose end-of-line kitchens

Who’s going to know if you bought a kitchen that was once used as a showroom display? Many kitchen showrooms offer their displays at a cheaper price when it’s time to dismantle and replace them at the end of each season. If there’s one style you have in mind, it may be worth waiting for when the price drops!

Avoid moving utility meters and services

Unless you absolutely have to change the orientation of a kitchen, try to keep the main utilities such as the sink and cooker in the same position. This will allow you to minimise the amount of additional engineering that will be needed to move things about, saving you so much money in the process.

Shop smart

It’s so easy to fall in love with kitchens you see online or in showrooms without knowing if it’s the best value for your money. Planning ahead with a clear budget in mind can really help make sure you only spend what you need and get a high-quality kitchen at an affordable price.

Find the best kitchen design company for the job

Working with the wrong kitchen design company can come with serious repercussions in the long run. This is why it’s important you find a company that listens to your needs, understand your budget restrictions and can find an ideal solution that will leave you beyond happy with your new kitchen.
