Home remodeling projects are a great way to add your own personal touch and creative style to your living space. To achieve the look you want at a price you can afford, hiring an interior designer instead of an architect can save you money because the designer’s fees are typically lower than those of a licensed architect.
If your expectations are reasonable and fit somewhat into the footprint of your existing home, an interior designer can work wonders and save you money, too. On the lower end, a designer’s fees can range from 1.5-3% of the cost of your remodeling project. On the other hand, a licensed architect may charge 10-15% of the total cost of the project. With the help of an interior designer, you can save quite a bit of money, while still enjoying all of the benefits an experienced professional can bring to your project.
Is it time for a new look in your kitchen? Perhaps you’re ready to modernize or just put your own special touches on the kitchen in your newly purchased home. Whatever the reason for remodeling your kitchen, you are probably looking for ways to save money while still bringing your kitchen up to your standards and expectations.
Cost savings associated with refacing comes from lower labor and material costs. Typically, the refacing of your cabinets will consist of the simple removal of your old cabinet doors and drawer fronts. New custom doors and drawer fronts will then be installed. As a bonus, you can generally specify more cabinets to be installed if you have the room and need additional cabinet space.
