Kitchen Renovations – Design, Planning and Budget
When you invest in kitchen renovations, the cost depends on several factors like size of the space, design chosen, appliances and driven by your own choices. Common reasons because of which kitchen renovations are often delayed includes purchase of upscale products and finishes.
Use of custom cabinets, special features, beautiful countertops and high end appliances can inflate the cost incurred for kitchen renovations. Beyond the costs which the owner controls like the finishes and materials there could be structural problems which must be resolved.
Unforeseen structural issues and code compliance costs are usually hidden and they cannot be avoided. Kitchen renovations may also be affected by scope creep. Looking at the progress, you may soon decide to make some more changes which has a cascading effect on the cost and timelines.
In addition to the external features of the kitchen cabinets, one can also have add-ons like pullout shelves, magic corner, spice or wine racks etc. which increases the cost of kitchen renovations.
