Kitchen pricing is all about thinking where you need to spend and where you need to save. For example, professional installation may cost a little more, but in the long run it will save you from the errors of poor workmanship. Also, if you have your heart set on a more expensive worktop option, choosing doors such as melamine provide a good cost-saving alternative to other options such as 2-pack paint or timber.
Here are three simple ways to save:
• Ask your kitchen designer or cabinet maker about current special offers
• Can you keep or move your older kitchen appliances, fixtures or accessories and replace them at a later date or treat them as an upgrade later on?
• Don’t replace kitchen items that are in good condition, for example, do you need to replace your appliances? Can you keep the frame of your existing cabinetry?
