If you’re on a limited budget, but still want to update the look and feel of your home, there are some ways that you can accomplish this. We’ve listed a few here.
The most popular rooms for remodeling are the kitchen and bathrooms. They can also cost more than other areas of the home. However, it’s important to remember that the return on investment is higher for remodeled kitchens and baths.
1. Wooden Pallets for Kitchens
If you’re looking for a rustic way to remodel your kitchen, wooden pallets are versatile and inexpensive. Using recycled pallets is also great for the environment because you’re reusing materials that would otherwise wind up in the trash dump.
2. Plan and Organize
Proper planning and preparation will help reduce the costs associated with remodeling a kitchen. Having a detailed plan and following that plan will help control costs throughout the project. Working with a licensed and trusted contractor who will follow through with your wishes is also critical to having a successful project completed within budget.
3. Kitchen Remodeling Shortcuts
Kitchens are probably the most expensive rooms to remodel. There are ways that you can trim costs using these suggestions. For example, if you can’t afford granite countertops, there are many beautiful laminate choices available at a much lower cost.
4. Inexpensive Bathroom Remodeling Ideas
There are several ways to save money when remodeling a bathroom. Refurbishing fixtures rather than replacing them can save some quick cash. Buying second-hand items that are still in good shape or shopping at lower-cost outlets can help with your budget too.
5. Small Remodeling Projects

8. Hiring the Right Contractor
There are some remodeling projects you can accomplish yourself, if you’re handy and have the right tools. However, larger-scale projects require a professional contractor who has the knowledge, experience and resources to get the job done right.
Communication between you and the contractor is important to the project’s success. Ask questions and give them any critical information to help them during the process; e.g., your family’s schedule, pets in the home, etc.
