Additional features such as breakfast counter, tall pantry (for deep storage), may incur more cost thus increasing the overall budget. But if you are looking for a more pleasant and aesthetic ambience in your kitchen without any additional cost, then go for open shelves. This will restrict some of the expense.

Cabinet & Shutter Materials

This covers a large part of your budget. As cabinets are exposed to a high amount of heat and moisture, you need to install the best materials for your exterior as well as interior cabinets. It is advised to go for water resistance or water proof ply board that offer high endurance against heat and water. PU and acrylic finishes are preferred over others as they give more rich look to your kitchen. But if you are looking for a cost-effective option, go for laminated shutters.
