Did you know the average price of a kitchen remodel these days is over $21,000 (according to HomeAdvisor)? Some of you might think that is a crazy amount of money to spend on a kitchen. The rest of you might not think that is enough money. The good news is that not everyone has to agree on the same number. However, you do have to determine your own budget and decide what to SAVE money on and what items to SPLURGE on to attain that number. This is a hard task but we want to help you decide.
Today’s topic: SPLURGE
To be more specific, we are sharing our #1 favorite item to splurge on in the kitchen: the faucet.
Think about it. What is the most frequently used item in your kitchen? You guessed it, the faucet. Even if you aren’t someone who cooks everyday, you will still use the faucet all the time. You touch it every day. You look at it every day. It is a big deal. This is exactly why the faucet deserves to be high quality.
Why save on something so important?
When remodeling a kitchen, the big items take up a significant part of the budget. You might focus on flooring, cabinets, backsplash and countertops and think your job is done. Far from the truth. Yes, the big items are VERY important but the small details in a kitchen make a big impact on your daily tasks. If possible, don’t save and skimp on everyday luxury. Remember to leave room in your budget for the smaller items towards the end of the remodel.
Blanco’s newest Empressa collection is definitely an everyday luxury. The faucets are stunning with a combination of traditional and contemporary styles that can fit seamlessly into any kitchen. The collection was inspired by European heritage which has beautiful detailing. The company’s innovative features paired with the timeless style, really set the bar high in quality and beauty. With plenty of luxury finishes and features available, these faucets will take the quality and look of your everyday tasks in the kitchen to another level.
It is very common these days to put money into items that are mostly for “special occasions” and things you only use once in a while. Switch it up. Make every day important and put your money where you are every day. Make the ordinary tasks special and luxurious. So, although the faucet is a small item in the kitchen, it is a very impactful one! Which is why we are naming the faucet, especially the newest Blanco Empressa Collection, our #1 splurge worthy item for your kitchen right now.
Invest in every day. Invest in luxury. You deserve it.
