Budgeting for Your Kitchen & Bathroom Remodel
Developing a budget for your kitchen or Bathroom cabinetry is an essential step in the remodel process. While every project will be different depending on the scope of the project and the materials you select, there are some common tips and tricks for developing your remodel budget.
It is generally suggested that you keep the budget of your kitchen remodel within 15% of your home’s fair market value. When you are developing your remodel budget, always plan for unexpected additional expenses, some suggest allocating 10% for unforeseen expenses.
When you are developing your kitchen or bathroom remodel plans, consider more than just upfront costs. Sometimes making a larger investment today will save you money tomorrow. Finally, once you have developed your budget, it is time to reflect and review. What in this remodel plan is a want, and what is a need? Conducting a need vs want list can be a great way to ensure you start at the must haves, and allow the budget to drive the frills, as it’s very easy to let your dreams float away rather than become reality.
