|Kitchen remodeling is expensive enough as it is, you don't need to add to it by buying a ton of brand new shiny kitchen appliances. While it's fun to look at websites, and see all the cool new gadgets that are out there for the kitchen, you really need to curb your spending when going through something like a remodel.
If you're going to keep your appliances, then you will want to keep your new remodeling similar to your old one, or maybe make it very neutral so everything matches. Maybe it's not even important if everything matches. The point is that it can cost many hundred of dollars to buy all new appliances when remodeling your kitchen, so you don't want to go through that.
Remodeling your kitchen is stressful, so you don't want to add to the stress by straining your bank account with buying all new appliances.
