How to Save Money On A Home Renovation
Tuesday Aug 10th, 2021
Kitchens are arguably the most important room in the house. They’re also the most expensive to renovate. So how can you spruce up your kitchen to increase the value of your home without breaking the bank? Here are some of our tried-and-true tricks:
Refresh Instead of Replace
Gut jobs are one of the most expensive tasks you can do in a home renovation. Your kitchen cabinetry might be old and a little outdated, but it’s also likely made of high-quality wood. Instead of putting that wood to waste, you can breathe new life into your cabinets by re-painting, adding new hardware, and even refacing.
Keep Your Layout
In an ideal world, it might be nice if you took down a wall and put in a kitchen island. However, this is a sure way to drive up your remodel budget. You can still achieve an entirely new look to your kitchen without spending lots of money rewiring and replumbing your space.
Do It Yourself
While some projects should always be left to professionals, some smaller projects can certainly be done by you which brings labour costs down to zero! Some great examples of projects you can do yourself are interior painting, tiling, flooring installation, changing outlets and lights, and installing baseboards and other trim.
