How to remodel your home on a tight budget

September 22, 2014

Here are a few tips for remodeling your home on a tight budget.

If you are thinking about remodeling or renovating your home, the first thing you will have to do is set your budget. Having a strict number in mind before you begin the project will help guide all of the decisions that you make – from choosing the right Maryland contractor to hire to deciding what rooms will be getting an upgrade.

Sometimes, the budgets that we have to work with are a bit on the smaller side, so there is less wiggle room when it comes to improving the household. This doesn't mean, however, that you have to sacrifice style or functionality.

In fact, having a smaller budget can actually help you focus on the project at hand and what changes absolutely need to be done during this renovation project.

One of the best ways to upgrade your home is by thinking long-term. Having energy-efficient improvements made – LED lights, low-flow showerheads – will save you money in utility expenses over the next few years.

In order to make sure that all of the projects that you absolutely want to get done are accomplished, make a list of most to least important jobs. That way, you will know where the money should be allocated, and what changes can wait until a later date.

If you are looking to change things up inexpensively, try and take care of any smaller jobs without the help of a professional. Painting the walls a new color or replacing old door knobs, for example, can be done on your own for a minimal amount of money invested.

If you are planning on remodeling your home, be sure to schedule an appointment with John C. Flood Inc. as soon as possible!
