7. Instead of expensive, sleek metal cabinetry, use self-assembly cabinet manufacturers. Instead of spending thousands on sleek, modern cabinets visit a store like IKEA. They have dozens of choices for cabinetry that you can assemble yourself. If you need help, they have assistance that you can purchase separately.
5. Instead of custom faucets and fixtures, use ‘off the shelf’ varieties. Many luxury kitchens have high-end custom fixtures. These days, home improvement stores offer the same great looks, but by common manufacturers. Delta, Moen, American Standard are just a few that will save you money, without anyone knowing.
Although it’s not necessarily a mistake, the latest kitchen trends and high-end equipment may not be the best choices. Trendy colors and designs have a short half-life, and you may never see a return on your large investments in the latest kitchenware. Look for that are timeless.
