The Kitchen Items NOT to Cheap Out On

When remodeling a kitchen, it’s hard to know when cutting corners is ok and when it is bad for your investment.  The costs keep adding and adding up! There are some items to not cheap out on, though, in order to make the most of your investment. We have some advice on which items should not be done or bought on the cheap…

  • Sinks & faucets. “It’s best to get a good quality one that will last a long time, because you don’t want to have to rip your sink & faucet out.”


  • Cabinet inserts. “Good cabinet inserts can make your kitchen more efficient – such as spice pull outs, sliding shelves, and pantry cabinets.”

  • Anything that moves. “You should pay the money for quality cabinets with movement, like magic corners, mixer lifts, and appliance garages, because you are going to use them everyday and if they don’t work well, than what’s the point!”

  • Drawer boxes with wood dovetail routed into drawer bottom. “No matter what anyone says, we stuff our drawers with everything, so sturdy drawer boxes are essential.”
