We all love to see and live in beautiful homes, but sometimes we need to save on some decorative pieces and splurge on others. For me, a balance of both is what can really transform a room. So, is it possible to remodel your home without excessive spending? The answer is yes! There are plenty of ways to remodel that require only a small investment or no investment at all. The most important thing is to create a strict budget, so as not to overspend. Make sure you detail exactly what you want to see in the room and how much money you’re willing to spend, and then account for all of your purchases.


Clean Up, but Don’t Throw Out

Declutter the room. Ask yourself: What’s worthy of saving and what do I want to get rid of? It’s important that you don’t throw anything away because you can make some extra money by selling items you don’t want in a garage sale or online auction. Moreover, you can donate unsalable items to a charity, and then write off your charitable donation for a tax deduction.

Remember: Less is more. When remodeling, you don’t necessarily have to fill the room with brand-new items. You can use what you already have on-hand, such as items that can be repurposed (old counter stools can easily be refinished and look like new again!).

Discounted Upgrades are Still Upgrades

Painting is one of the most inexpensive ways to make a room look and feel entirely new. Even if you don’t change much else, adding a fresh coat of paint to the walls, ceiling, old kitchen cabinets or furniture can breathe new life into a drab space. Once you’ve finished painting, try rearranging your furniture for an instantly refreshed space.

If you absolutely must purchase new items, you’ll want to utilize savings tools, such as coupons and online deals. Savings websites can offer thousands of deals, promo codes, and coupons at the click of a button. The best thing about these sites is that their deals are organized by use, so you simply need to check out the “Home” section to find coupons related to your project.

Seek Out Thrifty Second-Hand Stores

Thrift shops, antique shops, flea markets, and estate sales all offer big discounts on items you’ll need for your remodel. You really don’t know what glorious finds you’ll come across, but here’s some of the most common remodeling pieces typically found at these locations:

Second-hand shops carry a lot of quality artwork. Another way is to purchase picture frames, and use scrapbooking paper to create cool artwork for virtually no cost. Don’t have time to go hunting at the flea-market? Try these from Etsy.

A second-hand table/chair set may require a bit of refurbishing on your part, but can easily save you money. You can use reclaimed wood for headboards, tables, wine racks, and even decks or sandboxes for the kids. Check Pinterest for literally hundreds of ideas on how to revamp or build a new piece of furniture.

Fabric is one of the most overlooked pieces at second hand shops, but can actually be used for tablecloths, curtains, pillows, chair covers, etc. If you have basic sewing skills, fabric is easily the most valuable thing to purchase, think quilts and other fun decorative elements for the home.


Buying second-hand gives you the opportunity to explore a surplus of items you can repurpose. Be sure to visit early! The best pieces usually go first, so it pays to shop early. Also remember to visit DIY blogs for tips on remodeling, repurposing, and refurnishing on a budget.

Thank you for being here today, my friends. I will have to do some errands around town and it’s going to be a busy day. I have to get out of the house, visit some stores and make some notes. I am back working on a project for a very special client and I am very excited about this one. I honestly love what I do!!! 🙂

Have a Blessed day, everyone and we’ll talk again tomorrow.
