Posted by Ricardo Rutledge on 23rd October 2017

Refurbishing a pantry is nothing short of budget busting. If you have ben saving up and you know for a fact that you have all the resources that you need to start of on this project, here are some great guidelines to follow to make sure that you get this started right.

Why are you doing the refurbishing?
The first question that you must ask yourself when embarking on kitchen renovations is why you feel like you need to do this. If it is because there are some design or plan errors that are making the pantry less appealing or dull, then you might as well start off on it. But if you are doing this because you saw a pantry which you felt was nicer, it might not be the right path to take as you might have the same feeling down the line again when you see something that is trendier.

Consider the essentials first
The basic attention needs to go into the fundamentals like the caesarstone that you want to install or the flooring and the walls. Make a list of the essentials and discuss those with your architect and contractor. This will help you stay focused on the right prioritization of matters. If not it is often very easy to slip into the more fun details of the refurbishing and out do your budget and then feel like the project is putting you under financial duress because you still have nothing completed.

Look for durable yet reasonable products
You are not rebuilding your house, you are simply refurbishing your pantry. You need to therefore, remember that you should not overspend unless you actually have the money for it. Therefore, look around with several vendors for products that are durable, reputed and yet reasonably priced for their quality. Do not go for the cheapest thing on the market but not the most extravagant either. If you start comparing prices and looking into the fact if there are any offers and discounts available you will be able to save up on your purchasing which will help you cover up the amount that you will have to put into things like labour costs that will be high.

Do not buy new furniture unless you must
Buying new furniture is in itself a massive amount of money that you will have to spend on top of the hundreds of dollars that you are already dishing out for the refurbishing. Unless you really cannot use your old furnishings do not think about buying new ones. Most of the time, the furniture has very little to do with the settings of your pantry as it is not furnished like a living room. Chances are that ones the basic changes are done and things have been out into the correct design, you will be happy with how it looks even with the old furniture.
