Kitchen Renovation 101


Ultimately, your kitchen will reflect how you live. Because there are no hard-fast rules on where the budget must be spent in the kitchen, how you splurge and save your money will depend on what’s most important to you. 

The gourmet cook can justify an inflated budget for appliances and then splurge on a professional range. The entertainer sees a warming drawer and wine cooler as necessities. The busy families need storage, storage, and more storage. 


Be practical and look for energy-efficient appliances with warranties – arguably, you’ll use appliances more than other features in your kitchen. But be sure to maintain a balance between what you spend on appliances and cabinets. 


Knobs, pulls, and handles can refresh the look of an entire kitchen – talk about a budget remodel. You can practically spend as much as you want on cabinet “jewelry,” as there are wide ranges available for any budget. 

Overall, changing hardware provides a fast, affordable cabinet refresh. If you want to save money, choose the same type of pull you already have – switch knobs with knobs and pulls with pulls. 

As for finishing, you can update the look of your kitchen on the cheap by trading brushed stainless steel hardware for more on-trend oil-rubbed bronze, pewter, and other time-worn, aged-looking metals.


Remodeling a kitchen is full of big decisions, from appliances to backsplash tile to lighting fixtures. Compared to these, picking out a faucet for your kitchen sink can seem like a small task.
