Ways to Save


Planning your kitchen or bath remodeling project is important to help you decide where to allocate your dollars.

For example:

  • Don’t move plumbing or walls unless the move will greatly improve the space.
  • Have a clear set of specifications before comparison-shopping.
  • Be sure to compare the exact same products, not just similar ones.
  • The price for the same model of faucet, for example, will vary by finish.
  • Granite prices vary by grade.
  • Everyone shops online, but it’s important to visit showrooms and be sure that what you see online is what you think it is.

And most important…

Be sure of your design choices, and avoid changing your mind once products are ordered and installation begins. Change orders can be costly if orders are in process.
