Tips for Saving on Kitchen Design Plans

Ready to save? Here's how:

  • Be upfront about your budget. If you have a small budget to work with, tell your design professional right off the bat. They need to know exactly how to plan out your kitchen transformation, and learning there isn't enough money to cover their initial plans can be frustrating.
  • Do not be swayed. On the other hand, some kitchen design professionals take the unscrupulous route and try to pressure you into paying more than you can afford. Stick to your guns and don't go one dollar over the budget you have proposed.
  • Be willing to compromise. When it comes to staying well under that magic number, don't be afraid to compromise. Going with a less expensive island unit or accepting a different appliance manufacturer in your kitchen are all examples of giving a little to gain a lot.
  • Don't change your mind. The fastest way to run up the bill for kitchen design plans is to change your mind at the last minute. Think about your choices, make your decisions, and then stick with it.

Don't be afraid to shop around for the right kitchen remodeling professional. If all of them tell you that your budget is unreasonable for the work you want to do, rework your expectations. Eventually, everyone--including your budget--can find a happy medium.
