Kitchen Design and Quality Cabinets  

Tips for Creating a Budget

When creating a budget, keep the following suggestions in mind:


  • Educate yourself on the average cost of a remodel and kitchen design
  • A rule of thumb is to not let your kitchen design or remodeling budget exceed 15% of your home’s fair market value.
  • Plan your budget for a 10% overage in case there are unexpected expenses that occur.
  • To avoid incorrect measurements, talk with your designer about any major appliances you want to purchase before you finalize the design, since they will impact the overall measurement of the room.
  • Work with your kitchen designer to understand the cost differences between the various types of material, door styles, qaulity cabinets and finish techniques. Determine the aspects of your cabinetry selection and kitchen design that are non-negotiable, whether it’s the type of material or finish you choose.
  • To scale back financially, ask yourself if all of the features are necessary. However, bear in mind that what you might not miss now could be an essential feature months or years later. Avoid future disappointment by including as much functionality as you truly need as early as possible in the design process. This is especially true of storage solutions that need to be put in place when the kitchen cabinetry is being installed.
