If you’re embarking on a home remodeling project this year, here are 3 cost savings tricks for your home remodel.
Repurpose and Reuse
Repurposing and reusing materials is a great way to save money on your remodel. If you’re replacing your kitchen cabinets, don’t throw out your existing cabinets. Reuse them in another part of the house for storage, in a home office or even laundry room. Repurposing your kitchen or bathroom cabinets is a great way to save too, simply sand and paint your desired new color and add new fixtures. Same goes for flooring; if you already have wood floors but want to make them look new again, repurpose them by sanding and staining them a new color.
Choose Generic Over Name Brand
Many generic brands will provide the same look as name brands. Going generic is a great cost savings tip for any home remodel project, allowing you the same design freedom at a fraction of the price as name brand appliances, paint brands, you name it.
Expensive Materials for Smallest Square Footage
Another great cost savings tip for any home remodeling project is to use the more expensive materials for the smallest square footage in your remodeling project, and the least expensive materials for larger square footage. This will give you a nice mix of higher end materials with materials that offer a cost savings alternative.
