5 Budget-Friendly Remodeling Ideas

5 Budget-Friendly Remodeling Ideas

Whether you are trying to remodel a new home you just bought or prepare your house for sale, remodelling can be a great plan. Massive remodeling can take a lot of time and money, but there are always smaller steps to take that can also benefit your home. Below are some more budget-friendly remodeling ideas for your home.

The Bathtub

If you have a porcelain bathtub, an alternative to buying a new bathtub is refinishing your current one. This can be a long process, but it’s more cost effective than a brand-new bathtub. The refinishing process involves cleaning and then sanding the bathtub, before putting on new layers of paint and primer. This process will leave your bathtub looking almost new, if you have the right tools and the time to do it.

Wood Flooring

Instead of replacing wood flooring, one option is to simply refinish it. Wood flooring can often get scratched and worn down, especially in kitchens, living rooms and hallways. While replacing parts of the whole wood floor is an option, refinishing the wood is also a good idea. The most common approach to refinishing is to sand down the wood floor and then re-stain it, which requires a lot of effort and time to complete. If you want to have a flooring professional do the work, the price will depend on the square footage.

Paint

Whether you are painting walls, cabinets, doors, window sills, or appliances, a fresh coat of paint in an updated colour can make a huge difference in the appearance of a room. Make sure you carefully paint over, or fill in, any scratches or chips. It is also a smart idea to use good quality paint and primer, so your remodeling will last longer.

Update Lighting

One way to update the appearance of your home is to update your lighting. This could include adding new light fixtures or simply changing them, such as switching hanging lights to recessed lighting. Another way is to replace old light bulbs or add lamps and other lighting décor.

Replace Handles

One easier remodeling option, instead of replacing whole cabinets and drawers, is to replace the handles. If the handles and hinges are worn or squeaking, simply replace them with new, more stylish options.
