We made remodeling your kitchen for under $1000 a reality. Yes, most of these upgrades require a bit of sweat equity but with help from your spouse or friends and family they can be knocked off white easily. You trade time for money all the time and when it concerns home renovation the payoff is cherish able. You look at these upgrades almost daily and there?s a sense of pride involved in that. Without further adieu here are four ways that you can apply to remodeling your kitchen and remodeling any other room in your house.
1. Pick the Most Important Areas That Need Remodeling
You don’t have to transform the whole entire room to get a nice change. You should change things that you really hate or that might be devaluing the home. However, consider keeping certain things intact or at least those things that you are neutral about. For instance, my husband and I did not like anything about our kitchen. We still decided that we would at least keep the cabinets and the flooring so that we could just complement them with other changes.
2. Do It Yourself
Doing it yourself is something I want to encourage you to do. If you don’t think that you can, please give it another thought. When we did our kitchen project we learned how to do tile, how to build a frame, how to lay flooring down, how to install our roll out kitchen drawers and how to install drywall. All it took was a few instructional videos on the Internet to help us out. It was stressful and somewhat difficult but in the end we save lots of money and were proud of our work. We’re sure you can do this too!
3. Simple Things Matter
Sometimes it really is the little things that matter. Adding a few plants can liven up a room and add color to it. Pictures and dishtowels as well as new light fixtures can make a huge change. All of these things are relatively inexpensive but they can make a big difference in the entire look of your room.
4. Do a Remodeling in Phases
Face it – a home remodeling job can be overwhelming. You can also get discouraged, so I suggest split your remodeling project up into phases. If you split it up in phases, you can work towards one goal at a time and not have to feel you are in complete transition. It also is a great way to save money up for the next phase of your remodeling project.
