Kitchen remodels are expensive, and upgrading your kitchen can be a bit tricky if you have to work on a tight budget. However, if you do your research and formulate a plan, there is no doubt that you will be able to create a truly stunning kitchen without breaking the bank. It is always better to work smart. If you’re on a limited budget of around $10k to $40K but are still insistent on having a more updated modern space, we at Jensen Interiors have written down some clever ideas for quick, easy, and affordable updates. 

Call us first for a quick discussion of the project
A kitchen renovation can easily turn your old and simple kitchen into a magic room. However, doing the renovations on your own can be hectic and troublesome for many. So, the best policy is to talk to a professional before turning your kitchen into your dream one. We have handled a variety of commercial and residential projects for clients in Central Florida for over twenty years. With our attention to detail and dedication to delivering the highest quality work possible, you can feel rest assured knowing that your project is in the hands of an extremely talented and knowledgeable team of employees that are recognized as expert installers.

Take pictures
The next step would be to take pictures. The focus is to capture the whole room being renovated. In the beginning, just take plain and not quite detailed pictures of the whole area. This allows you to see what the area looks like beforehand. Photos help you and us decide how you want to go about making changes in a functional space that’s lived in versus on a showroom wall or on pictures you find online.

Take simple measurements and ceiling heights
Understanding and taking a few key building measurements and organizational guidelines can help your culinary life run more smoothly. Your kitchen’s ceiling height is an oft-forgotten measurement. A simple mistake in ceiling height can translate to thousands of dollars worth of design and product changes. Measure from the middle of the room, as well as various corners. Finally, mark the structural fixtures in the room that won’t be altered. For instance, draw in the location of utilities like water lines, gas lines, electrical outlets, and junction boxes. 

Come to the showroom to select cabinet styles/colors
The next thing to consider is the kitchen cabinets. Cabinets are often one of the major focal points of kitchen spaces, making them important elements in kitchen design. There is an endless array of kitchen cabinets on the market. Whether your cabinets are timber or laminate, there is a paint product to suit. You want your kitchen cabinets to look good and also provide the benefits that you desire. As such, aesthetics and functionality are key components of cabinet selection. Going to a showroom in person helps you choose a design while consulting with professionals. 

Pick out countertop colors
Your kitchen countertop could be the most important decorating choice because of its immediate visual impact. When you’re choosing countertop colors, you’ll be matching them to a color scheme for the room. Matching the countertops to a paint color can be gorgeous, but keep in mind that your color tastes may change, and the room could be repainted. Consider a countertop with veins or splashes of your favorite color, so you can keep your options open.

Pick out backsplash tile
A tile backsplash plays a huge part in adding aesthetic value to your space. With so many color options, styles, and backsplash designs to choose from, you can select a tile that matches your design style and color scheme perfectly, or you can mix and match with a contrasting color palette! Your backsplash will take your kitchen to the next level, enhancing its overall look, which will directly increase your kitchen’s value.

Receive an initial quote for labor and materials
Getting a kitchen renovation quote is usually the first step you’ll take towards starting your kitchen remodel. There are hundreds of variables involved in renovating a kitchen and equally as many ways to set up a quote. The more specifics in a quote, the better. A detailed initial quote ensures that the kitchen contractor you’re working with hasn’t provided you with a broad estimate.
