A designer’s job is to serve your needs, and that includes sticking to a budget. Luckily, us designers have a knack for saving money, because during something as big as a renovation, every penny counts! Here’s three things you can salvage in your kitchen to get all the bang out of your buck:
I’ve talked about using leftover counter-top slabs to DIY other pieces for around the house before, like making a cutting slab or even side tables! I want to focus on the existing countertop you might find, like with an island or breakfast bar. Save it and use it elsewhere in the house, like in the bathroom or for a chic coffee table!
It may seem like redoing backsplash is an inexpensive fix, but it adds up. Consider salvaging the backsplash that comes with a kitchen or bathroom. If not, be sure to opt for a material that lasts and is a lot more durable, like ceramic or porcelain! It’s more long term, so you’re saving when you don’t have to take care of constant fixes and updates!
Sinks and Faucets
Don’t get rid of old faucets and sinks – keep it and use it elsewhere in the house! Not only are you adding character to your house by reusing old bits and pieces, you are reusing and minimizing your eco footprint! It’s a win-win solution.
You’ll be surprised just how much we can reuse from a kitchen renovation, and it saves a TON of money in the long haul. A designer is there to make sure that not only are you making smart investments, but that your design choices will fit in with your lifestyle ????
