This month’s Design Minds question comes from a fan looking to undertake a remodeling project without blowing her budget:
“I’ve noticed that kitchen remodels can be very expensive, particularly the cabinetry. Why should I invest in a high-end remodel when on the surface all cabinets look alike?”
At Archipelago Hawaii, our goal is to help our clients find quality options that don’t break the bank.
Our Design Engineer Laurent Chouari has tips for approaching quality cabinetry when you’re on a budget:
Invest in quality cabinet materialsThink about the long-term costs of your hardware, wood, and materials. The construction of an object that costs more often lasts much longer than their inexpensive counterparts. When shopping for cabinet pieces for your home, make sure to evaluate the unseen factors of quality such as the grades of the wood used and the quality of the finish.
Don’t forget about the little details
Flying in a missing part could end up being quite expensive and may significantly delay a project.
As a company, we at Archipelago Hawaii work not just on the design of your home, but also on ordering all the materials you need and getting them to the jobsite.
Incorporate functional accessories into your cabinets
From Space Corner Drawers to Trash Pullouts, their add-ons cut clutter and are a great luxury investment.
