Define Your Budget

The first step to any kitchen renovation project, and the most important one is to define your budget beforehand. Plan out exactly what you’re going to be doing to your kitchen space and exactly how much you are going to spend. Failing to complete this step makes it far to easy for your budget to continually expand throughout the duration of your kitchen renovation project. If you have a plan of exactly what you want to do, you can figure out exactly what you need to buy for your new kitchen and how much you need to spend. This way, you won’t constantly be adding to your expenses.

While it’s normal to slightly exceed your budget, having a clear plan should keep extra costs to a minimum.

Instead, browse our range of affordable worktops. You’ll get the same high quality, minus the extortionate markup in price.

Buy Second Hand

Not everything has to be brand new and depending on the kitchen style that you are going for, vintage is on trend. And so is buying second hand. Not only is it better for the environment, giving a new purpose to a product that would otherwise be discarded, it’s also an excellent way to also save you money. Try browsing charity shops or look through second hand online marketplaces. There is always a bargain to be had. You can find some really great quality products and for a fraction of the price.

Look After Your Tools

If you’ve decided to take on the task of painting by yourself, make sure you take good care of your tools. You may be tired after a long day of manual labour but don’t leave your paintbrushes and rollers unwashed. This only leaves you having to repurchase tools, that could have easily been reused, and it will consequently, but unnecessarily put your expenses through the roof.
