A Renovation Guide
I love cooking. I love eating. And I especially enjoy trying new recipes in my kitchen that’s filled with the latest appliances and modern conveniences. As a renter, though, I can’t always update my kitchen to match my tastes or needs – but it doesn’t mean you have to settle for an outdated space either! The kitchen renovation project is all about how you can modernize your old kitchen without having to spend a fortune on renovations by following these 11 steps.
The first thing you want to do is plan your budget.
The first thing you want to do is plan your budget. Start by figuring out what kind of money you can put towards the renovation, and then use this handy calculator to figure out exactly how much that means in terms of dollars for each project you’re considering doing (like replacing cabinets).
Having an exact number helps motivate you when it comes time to make tough decisions about which projects are most important! Next, keep track of everything as work progresses . From receipts for purchases like new appliances or faucets, to quotes from contractors – document every step the way so that if there are any issues at the end of the renovation, you’ll have all your information easily accessible.
In addition to budgeting, you’ll want to plan ahead for appliances and hardware . Modern or sleek touches like chrome faucets and stainless steel finishes add a stylish touch while also making your kitchen feel more modern.
The third step is clearing out the clutter! Clear all surfaces in your kitchen – whether that means washing down cabinets with water and vinegar or taking everything off counters to give them a thorough cleaning (and regrouting if needed). Clearing away extra items such as junk mail will make it easier for contractors to get into every nook and cranny when they’re working on renovations too. When doing this step, consider sorting through cabinet contents , especially since sometimes we just shove things to the back where we forget about them.
