In Budgeting for Kitchen Remodeling, How Do We Prioritize?

Answered by Brendan ~ January 8, 2010 ~ No Comments

Our 27-year old Wichita, KS, kitchen needs new appliances, a new sink, flooring, lighting, and countertops, though the layout is very functional. Everything in this kitchen works--it's just worn, outdated and not energy efficient. If we do part of the kitchen remodeling now, and part in about 18 months, what would you do first, and why?

Budgeting for Kitchen RemodelingFirst you will need to make a very detailed list of everything that you will want to go into your new kitchen, everything. Based on this list, you will need to see if your new appliances sink, and lights are going to fit where your old appliances, sink, lights were installed.

Differences in these things can mean lots of reconfiguring and in some cases new cabinets. If all the appliances are an exact swap out, then I would start with the countertops, sink, and lights, and finish with flooring and appliances.
