With your budget running tight, you may want to plan carefully for your kitchen remodel project. You can build a great kitchen on a budget, but you will want to use a kitchen remodel cost estimator to get a good idea what you are going to be looking at in terms of cost. There are often elements to kitchen design that we do not think of. For example, if you are doing the job on your own, have you factored in the costs of using your own time? Many folks forget to do this and it ends up costing them more money to do the job themselves than if they hired a company.
