Exterior Renovation Dos and Donts

 

When you have already moved into your new home, you are instantly met with the challenge of filling up empty rooms. More importantly, you will have to maximize your renovation efforts. From Chicago homes for sale to vacant New York City apartments, any piece of property is just waiting to be improved, and people should already have an idea on what to do once they move in.

No doubt, a great deal of the planning for a total or partial home makeover deals with knowing the cost of the project. Sure enough, renovation doesn’t come cheap, as you will have to invest a large sum in one room alone.

Fortunately, homebuyers can still make important changes to their new home. And this is because there are renovation ideas that won’t break the bank.

Here are just some of them.

 

1. Allocate your Funds Earlier

Right from the onset, you should already have an idea on how much you are going to spend for your home renovation projects. That way, you won’t have any additional problems during the long haul. That means you can save extra time for implementing your plans. What’s more, setting your budget earlier enables you to avoid unnecessary expenses.

 

2. Start with the Lights

A good rule of thumb when renovating a house is to start with the lighting system. There are tons of cost-effective and creative ways to tweak how your house would look like during the night. You might want to install accent lights in each corner of the living room. Aside from being energy-efficient, accent lights can give your room a more sophisticated look right when the sun goes down.

 

3. Do Minor Improvements Yourself

Are you thinking of giving your interior walls a fresh coat of paint? If you have some free time on your hands, you can save on labor costs by doing improvements by yourself. Look around for possible improvements you can handle such as added interior decor. That way, you will only be paying for the materials, leaving you with extra funds you can use for additional household tweaks.

 

4. Think About Traditional Floors

If your home is a hand-me-down, you might as well renovate certain elements that have been worn down by time. Marble tile floors can lose their tint, so if you want to resurrect their pearly whiteness, you might as well give them a thorough scrubbing. If you’re thinking of overhauling the floor, you can always opt for traditional wooden boards. If you want to give your new home a rustic look, wooden floors would certainly complement the overall theme.

 

5. Explore DIY

Who says you can’t make your new home appealing for less? You can still recycle old materials to complete the overall feel of your home. You can cut out patterns on pieces of cardboard to create beautiful stencil art on your walls. You can also repurpose old desks as countertops. Lastly, you can save money on a bookshelf by transforming certain partitions into personal libraries. For example, you can install shelves under staircases and make a little reading area while you are at it.
