Your Kitchen Renovation • 3 Bad Ideas
① Too Few Cabinets
Cabinets take up a lot of space and they cost a lot too. So, you might be tempted to limit the number of cabinets that you install. However, you will be quite unhappy when you find that you are out of space and must find other places in the house to put things that you want to have close by. Figure out your needs before you make a purchase.
② Buying Low-cost Appliances
You get what you pay for. This is a worn-out cliché, but it is no less true. There are times in life when we can get a good deal, and something that was inexpensive turns out to be a wonder. But with appliances, you aren’t going to get lucky like that.
As long as you aren’t sold into an overpriced brand, the price of appliances you see in the store usually represents the quality of the product. On top of that, people recognize quality, and when it comes time to sell your house, you might be sorry you didn’t pay a little more.
③ Fragile Materials
Your kitchen gets more wear and tear than any other room in your house. You need to make sure that all the materials, especially the cabinets and the surfaces are durable and not some synthetic copy.
