What makes a kitchen more or less expensive?
Cabinets account for about one-third to one-half the total cost of the project and will have the greatest impact on your budget. They range in price considerably based on quality, the type of material they are made of, and whether they are stock (ready made in specific sizes) or custom (produced specifically for your kitchen in whatever sizes and finishes are needed).
The material you choose for surfaces including counters, backsplashes and floors can also account for variations in price. Other key elements that factor in to the equation are talent and workmanship. In the remodeling business, you tend to get what you pay for. An accomplished designer, skilled sub-tradesmen and expert installation crew may cost more. But you’ll appreciate their ability every time you use your kitchen.
What makes a bathroom remodeling more or less expensive?
No single element of a bathroom remodel comprises a significantly larger portion of the costs than other elements. The type and quality of cabinets you select will affect your total costs.
Not surprisingly, fixtures and fittings account for a high cost percentage in the bathroom. Expense for fixtures and fittings will vary depending on the brand, type of materials, and array of products you select.
In bathrooms, installation typically accounts for a quarter or more of the total cost. This is because the installation work in a bathroom tends to be intricate (for example, tile setting). If you’re looking to cut corners, this is probably not the place to do it.
Can I save money by cutting a few corners?
Yes, but chances are you’ll be disappointed when it’s done. Postponing some things is a better way to save than cutting quality. Put your money into the best quality products your budget can afford, even if you have to limit the number of products that you buy.
Should I select my appliances first and then call in a kitchen planner?
Can I get other bids on the final design?
Our policy is to not release the plans, which are protected by copyright, until a purchase agreement has been made. In any event, it is extremely difficult to comparison shop for a kitchen, because different firms feature different products. Most of the time you will end up comparing “apples and oranges.”
If a company has been in business for some time, it’s usually a sign that their prices are competitive or they wouldn’t have stayed in business. Also, it’s more important to work with someone you feel comfortable with and trust than to try to save money with someone who implies they can save you “X amount of dollars.”
