The good news is that, if you read some of those and thought “I don’t need that”, then you can either cut those items from your budget or roll that into one of the other categories that you may want to invest more in (or better yet, a buffer in case any surprise costs come up). We went ahead and took the “Designer” fee and rolled it into “Other” because we deduct our designer fee from the cost of your products when you purchase through Vevano Home.
Breaking Down Costs by Type of Remodel
Low-Cost Remodel: $100+ per square foot
A low-cost remodel can cost as little as a few thousand dollars, especially if you’re looking to update features rather than completely replace them. Painting walls and cabinet refacing (instead of replacement) combined with new appliances, a backsplash, faucets, sinks, and lighting can add a newer look to your kitchen without demolition or high costs. Even something as simple as installing cabinet pull-outs and accessories can go a long way in decluttering and transforming your kitchen (these cabinet organization ideas and upgrades can get you started).
