Houston Bathroom Renovation Cost Can Be Kept Low With The Right Plumbing Upgrades Planned In Advance

Top 5 Budget Reno Tips

Budget Reno Tip 1: Paint

We’ll start with paint because there is no cheaper and more effective way to renovate than with paint. Just repainting the walls the same colour will freshen the rooms up, but that’s not renovating with paint. If you want to make real home improvements with paint, consider some of these possibilities before you head off to your paint supplier:

  • Top interior designers recommend choosing colours according to the mood you want to create. Blue and green are soothing colours, while those in the yellow-red spectrum are psychologically uplifting.
  • Choose a predominant existing colour in your room (such as your floors) and choose wall colours to complement them.
  • Turn a bland wall into a feature wall with a contrasting paint colour or wallpaper.
  • For functional fun in children’s rooms, paint part of a wall or the inside of the bedroom door with blackboard paint.

Budget Reno Tip 2: A New Bathroom on a Budget

If your bathroom needs renovating, but you’re on a tight budget, these inexpensive bathroom makeovers may be all you need:

  • If your bathtub and vanity sink are scratched, faded, stained or scratched, don’t despair – repair. Call a local bath & basin resurfacing expert and make them look like new again for a fraction of the cost.
  • Replace your old shower screen with a modern frameless shower screen to modernise the room and make it appear much larger.
  • Simple and inexpensive bathroom accessories like heated towel racks, a new anti-fog vanity mirror and a new shower head can make the bathroom feel so much more luxurious.

Budget Reno Tip 3: Budget Kitchen Renovations

Kitchen renovations can be real budget-busters, but they don’t need to be. Consider these budget kitchen reno ideas:

  • Reface your kitchen with new door fronts, drawer fronts and exposed panels. A good kitchen renovation company will be happy to supply you with what you need and you can probably install them yourself.
  • If your kitchen really needs replacing, look into DIY flat pack kitchens. They are easy to assemble, easy to install and much cheaper than custom kitchens. Flat pack kitchens offer high quality materials and fittings, so you needn’t sacrifice quality to save money.
  • Add a new splashback to go with your newly refaced kitchen and give the kitchen a whole new designer look on a budget.

Budget Reno Tip 4: A Budget Home Office that Works

If you work from home or catch up on work in the evening or on weekends, you need a space you can call your own and focus on your work without distraction. Is it worth it, though, to add on an expensive extension to your home or is there a cheaper way? If you’re renovating on a tight budget, join the growing number of Australians who are dedicating space to a pocket office. All you need to create a pocket office is a designated work space and a little privacy.

If you need more space than a pocket office affords or need a private space for working with clients, look into the products offered by pre-fabricated shed suppliers. Today’s sheds aren’t what they used to be and you can have them fitted out to be as stylish and comfortable as you like.

Budget Reno Tip 5: Get Some Help in Your Garden

Nothing enhances a home’s appearance and value more than a beautiful, healthy garden. Most of the time, gardening can be a DIY project, but if yours looks like it could use a little TLC, hire an expert garden maintenance person to give you a hand until it’s back in shape again. For a more radical, yet still cost-effective garden makeover, hire a garden designer and turn your garden into a magical wonderland.

Before you finalize your garden design, think about ways you can get even more pleasure and value out of your garden and your home by bringing the outdoors in with new window treatments and doors. For example:

  • Replace your bedroom window with French doors and style a private garden for your personal enjoyment.
  • Replace your sliding glass patio doors with wider opening folding doors.
  • A new patio can be as good as a new room and is a lot cheaper. If you already have a patio, look into the new types of patio screens, windows and doors that are available. You’ll be amazed by how much more you will enjoy your patio when it’s protected from insects and the elements.
