Five Ways to Remodel without Breaking the Bank

When choosing to remodel your home, it’s important keep in mind that remodeling can send you way over the budget that you may have set for yourself. There are many ways that you can remodel and stay within your budget so that you don’t break the bank.

Update Paint

For starters, you can do some painting and by doing it yourself you’ll be able to save a great deal of money, or you can bring in a professional like Markham’s Room at a Time to do the work for you. Something as simple as painting can change the look of any room. The new color and the fresh clean appearance that painting provides creates a wonderful change that looks good in the home and also makes the homeowner feel good about their new room.

Kitchen Facelift

You might also choose to make small changes that make huge differences; for example in the kitchen adding a new faucet to your sink, new knobs to your cabinets and new handles to your drawers can make a drastic difference. Additionally adding fresh coats of paint to the kitchen will give it a fresh new look. If new appliances are in your budget, you can add new appliances to give your kitchen the face lift that it needs.

Bathroom Remodel

If you want to change the look of your bathroom consider adding a new vanity. You may choose one that is larger or smaller than the one that you had previously or you may want to tryout a pedestal sink. You can also try out new lighting to give your bathroom a more modern look.

Family Room Refresher

In the family room you can remove some of your sheetrock in between the wall studs to create storage space for books, DVD’s and other items. Placing a simple frame around the shelving that you created with decorative trim will add a great modern look to your storage area.

Warming Up the Patio or Porch

You might consider using some of the space that you have on your patio or porch to add to the comfort that your home provides. A new patio table and chairs can create a great family space for dinner or a place where the kids can color or do homework when the temperature is acceptable. You can easily dress the area up with beautiful planters and plants that require little care.

Changing the looks of your home can be easy as well as affordable with a little thought and planning and by doing all that you can yourself you’ll find that you will be able to save more than you ever thought possible while still making the changes that you want to your home.
