The Scope of Kitchen Renovations
When it comes to making changes in your kitchen, how far should you go? Some of that is dictated by finances and space, but the scope of your kitchen renovations can be quite varied. For some, it might look like a fresh coat of paint, new hardware, or a new appliance. Must people can tackle these simple changes themselves without need of a kitchen contractor. Other changes go a little further though and may benefit from outside assistance. That’s where Revival Home Renovations come in. Before we begin though, you still need to decide what the scope of your kitchen renovations will be. It helps to know what you are up against though.
Refacing – $
Kitchen renovations that involve cabinet refacing are the quickest and usually cheapest route to go. If your cabinet boxes are in good shape, you may be able to get away with simply refacing the cabinets—replacing the cabinet doors. This can be accomplished in less than a week and reduces the work, mess, and cost. Due to the fact that the scope of work is smaller, you can may be able to include other smaller upgrades to your budget that may not be possible when tackling a full scale remodel.
Kitchen Renovations – $$
For those requiring more extensive changes, you are looking at kitchen renovations. This might look like new kitchen cabinets, countertops, a sink, and/or other changes. There is more planning involved and the renovations take longer than in a simple refacing project. The cost is usually higher as well, but not as high as when you get into the scope of extensive remodeling projects. Depending upon what you plan to change, the quality of your finishes may fluctuate according to your budget; for example you are able to spend more on a countertop, by not replacing your floors.
Kitchen Remodeling – $$$
When it comes to kitchen remodeling, you step into the highest tier of kitchen transformations. The work takes longer to plan and undertake, and not surprisingly, is the most expensive option when it comes to the scope of kitchen renovations. The reason is because it involves the most amount of work. In remodeling jobs, walls may be removed, islands and electrical added or kitchens relocated to entirely new areas. Because you are often starting with a blank slate, there are more choices to make and more costs involved, but you end up with an entirely brand new space.
Ultimately, the scope of your kitchen renovations is up to you. As the homeowner, you need to decide how long you want the project to take, how much you can afford to spend, and how extensive you want the renovations to be. There is plenty to consider.
