Nowadays modern kitchen ideas are changing so rapidly that it seems like there’s a new concept out every day.  But constantly rearranging your kitchen to reflect all of the most recent trends would not only cost a fortune, it would be impossible because you could never keep up with the swift pace of the changes.  For those of you who would like to do some kitchen remodeling, and admire the beautiful designer kitchens you see out there you have an alternative that can be put into action without your having to rob a bank in order to afford it.  Here are some suggestions that will help set you on your way:

1.  Estimates — Stop by your local home improvement store and stay awhile looking around and writing down prices, so that you will be able to work out a cost estimate.  It’s a really good idea while you’re doing this to write down two sets of prices — what you can actually afford without having to burn your budget for the next year, and items that you’d “like to have”, but which aren’t essential.  Don’t forget to add in the costs of labor if you are planning on having a contractor do the remodeling for you; eliminate the price of labor if you are going to tackle the job yourself.

2.  Calculations — While putting your modern kitchen ideas into action can be a lot of fun, don’t get too carried.  Reign yourself in by calculating exactly how much money you have available and how much of that you can make plans for spending.  You should give some serious thought to doing the remodeling job one piece at a time if you are economically challenged.  Or perhaps you could talk to your bank and get a home equity loan.

3.  Updating — Spend some time considering how you want to update the cabinets — you can of course replace them with brand new cabinets, or you can opt for used cabinets.  Now this alternative is not as bad as it sounds.  You see, there are times when people replace their cabinets while they are still in pretty good shape, so your contractor might be able to sell them to you without anyone ever having to know they were used.  You can also simple reface your cabinets, which means replacing the doors.

4.  Floors — If you want your kitchen to look like a beautiful designer kitchen,  getting the right kind of flooring is extremely important.  You can choose linoleum, laminate, hardwood, tile, carpet or even polished concrete.  Now is also the time to consider interior elevation of your kitchen.  Decide whether or not you would like to have this done right now.  Also keep in mind that linoleum is not a dirty word.  The type of linoleum available today is a whole lot better looking that that which was available twenty or thirty years ago.  And today’s laminates can appear as if they are hardwood, but they are more durable and lower maintenance.

5.  Lighting — If you have decided not to have an interior elevation of your kitchen, that should give you a little extra money to spend on the lighting.  There’s so much you can do with modern lighting that it’s amazing.  Maybe you’d like to have a lighted ceiling fan, sconces, or even a chandelier.  There’s a whole list of choices you can make and something for all price ranges.

6.  Countertops — Select new material for your countertops.  You can opt for granite, which will be expensive, or cheaper countertop sheets.

In the end what it comes down to is that all of these are merely suggestions.  You have to spend the time and make the effort, and consider your finances to be absolutely certain that you do the right thing for your home, your family, yourself and your kitchen.
