Remodelling secrets for those on a budget

It’s only natural to have dreams that is bigger than the piggy bank. Cutting corners of your initial planning may help you stay in the budget but oh the heartache it causes… yes we all have experience in that department. The good news is, you can sidestep the pain using some tricks while remodelling your home. These tricks can turn your existing space into something new and sassy without making you go through the unwelcoming task of compromising with your dream.

Rethink about the major changes: If you are planning to relocate plumbing pipes and electrical outlets, you are up for some BIG expenditure. Nothing will drive up the cost of a remodel faster than changing the location of plumbing pipes and electrical outlets, and knocking down walls. This is usually where unforeseen problems occur. If not absolutely necessary, we suggest you keep appliances, water fixtures, and walls in the same location. This not only will you save on demolition and reconstruction costs, you’ll cut the amount of dust and debris your project generates.

Increase efficiency, not size: Make attaining maximum efficiency of the kitchen your priority. If you can reorganize and equip your kitchen for maximum utility, you may not need to blow out the walls to gain square footage. You could easily shell out a few thousand to outfit cabinets with upgrades like dividers, pull–out pot trays, but you’ll save many times that amount by skipping the addition you thought you needed.

Let paint do the wonders:  Use the power of paint to get an instant transformation. Paint can easily cover a multitude of sins, from dowdy timber panelling, dated tiles or discoloured baths and basins. Just make sure you are getting the right paint and hiring the right person to do the task.

Update lights: Why settle for gloomy, depressing kitchen area when you can plan and install the proper lighting and create the ambiance in your kitchen? Pendant lights over your kitchen island bench can add a bit of drama to an otherwise bland space. The right expert will be able to advice you on how to make the most of your budget using proper lighting and help you install it effortlessly.

Address the details: You’ll be amazed how much of a difference it can make to change seemingly minor things like power-point covers, light switches, handles and tapware. None are expensive in themselves, but together, they’ll really modernise a property and lift it to the next level. A single trip to the hardware store, a few hundred dollars and a few hours on the tools will have you reaching for the bubbly when you see the results.

Look into long term savings: Don’t get fascinated by the ideas that seems cheap now, rather look for renovation ideas that will save you bucks in the long term.
