If you want to renovate the kitchen, but can’t find suitable kitchen supplies: the products with good brands are expensive and the cheap ones have poor quality. This makes many consumers worried: how they can buy good kitchen supplies without spending much money. Is there any tips? After consulting many professionals, here I share some money-saving strategies with you.
Money-saving strategy 1: buying higher-quality kitchen supplies = longer duration = saving more money
The reason why kitchen supplies’ prices vary from each other in the market lies in the quality. The manufacturing costs of high quality products are inevitably higher than the low-quality ones. However, usually many consumers can’t see the internal differences with the naked eye, so I suggest purchasing well-known brand kitchen supplies, because the effective volumes, environmental certifications, design concepts and after-sales service are more secure and duration will be longer.
Now let’s make a comparison: a set of kitchen supplies costs only $500. After two or three years, various problems appear; another set which costs $2000 can be used for dozens of years without any big problem. Which is cost-effective? However, I still must remind you that the products with very low prices can’t have high quality while the ones with high prices may not have high-quality. You need to learn more professional knowledge or invest more about the brand’s market reputation.
Money-saving strategy 2: buying kitchen cabinet + range hood and cooker + sink and faucet can enjoy the economical prices
Some consumers believe that buying kitchen cabinets in a professional kitchen cabinet company, buying range hoods in the electronics store and buying sinks and faucets in a hardware store to combine them is cheaper. In fact, this method is not necessarily cost-effective, because separately purchasing often can’t enjoy the best discounts from the vendors and you have to pay an additional installation fee to the kitchen cabinet companies. Therefore, it is better to buy the kitchen cabinet, range hood, cooker, sink, faucet and other kitchen accessory products together, which can not only save time and energy (in a sense, it is another way of saving money) but also can acquire the best discounts from the vendors.
Money-saving strategy 3: seize the opportunities of promotions and group purchase
High-end brands products are the preferred choices for kitchen decoration because their quality and after-sales service is undeniably good. But the prices are naturally very high. What you can do? This requires consumers to pay more attention in their daily life. Actually, the prices of these brands are not invariable. In order to increase the sales, they also carry out some activities to promote their products from time to time, such as providing some offers in the term of concessions package or group purchase. Maybe the prices given in the promotions will not be very low, but you also can save a lot of money compared to the original prices.
Even if the vendors do not carry out such promotions, you can also create opportunities. With the well-developed of Internet, you can organize a group purchase for a certain brand. Then you can negotiate with the vendors and the vendors will not belittle the power of it. Now you just need to wait for the concessions.
Money-saving strategy 4: having a perfect after-sales service
Take kitchen cabinet for example, it is a durable product whose duration is more than five years. The most important guarantee for consumer is after-sales service except for quality. After a long time use, the door panel, counter top, launching ways all need some cleaning and maintenance, which can extend the useful life. Some vendors who have perfect service can offer a certain warranty time and life-long maintenance service. If the problem occurs during the warranty time, the maintenance is free; even if beyond the warranty time, it is charged at the cost price. Therefore, when choosing kitchen supplies, you must not ignore the perfect after-sales service, which can save money for the future!
