So, yesterday was all about dream kitchens. DWR modular units that are made from high-end materials and that can be customized. There were some great comments about the expense of these units, and I thought I would continue the conversation by presenting some alternatives to the ultra-expensive dream kitchen.
While I still think that at times going high-end can save you money in the long run, it’s also important to get real and offer options that meet everyone’s budget. IKEA is so good at doing this, and offers some spectacular kitchen units. Their “Kitchens for Everyone” slogan holds true to their philosophy that design should be accessible and fit your individual needs. And with their 25 year warranty, these kitchens are also made to last.
For a fraction of the cost of some of the more expensive kitchen collections out there, you can build your own kitchen using IKEA’s 3D planning tools. While it may mean a little more work, IKEA kitchens are a wonderful way to create custom kitchen solutions without breaking the bank.
So, what do you think? If you were about to do a kitchen reno, would you shell out the extra expense for a little luxury and high-end materials, or opt for extra savings with some do-it-yourself know how?
Can’t wait to hear from you!
