Money Saving Remodeling Ideas for Your Home
by Guest Post on Sep 25, 2015
A renovation is a challenge for anyone who has moved into a new place especially when the budget is limited. Balancing the need to remodel your new home while saving money can be a daunting task, however, there are still ways to bring change to your living place without spending too much money.
A Super-Efficient Kitchen
A spacious kitchen may sound preferable over a kitchen area with limited space, yet maintaining a large kitchen can be a messy job. Among other good things about small kitchens, their convenience of cleaning is special. Since you tend to use every square foot available, there will be no space for a mess. Keeping all the items and kitchenware in place will no more be a confusing task. You could easily shell out a few thousand to outfit cabinets with upgrades like dividers and pull–out pot trays, but you'll save many times that amount by skipping the addition you thought you needed.
In the kitchen, use the vertical spaces as much as possible. Instead of a spacious pantry, go for open shelves. Open shelves are perfect for small kitchens. Keep all the dishes, cooking pans and other stuff nicely arranged on shelves. Add some of your creativity to make the best use of the little space available. River Residency offers efficient kitchens with stylish cabinets to maximize your kitchen storage.
Natural Light is Bliss
Trendy new houses are built with ‘light tubes’ installed between roof rafters to funnel the sunshine down into the living space. Using light tubes is way cost-efficient than adding double pane windows which are both costly and extra work.
DIY – Do It Yourself
Getting contractors and professionals even for small repair work and paint jobs at home can cost you enough money that you could have saved from running an efficient kitchen and using natural light. Start using DIY kits. DIY kits are both cheaper and easily accessible when compared to hiring professionals. Instead of paying someone to pick up dust off the floor, insulate, paint your walls, put your money into the time it takes to do all that work properly. DIY kits often come with tutorials that give you basic knowledge on how to get your work done by yourself.
