From a new kitchen to an outdoor deck, you can do so much with a home remodel. If you're handy, you can even build a deck in a day according to some experts. However, every project has to start somewhere. However, you can get really creative and use a bunch of different tools online to really find some great ways to improve your home as well as change its design. Where you start generally depends on what you want to fix in or outside of your home. In this guide, you can figure out different areas of your home that you could remodel as well as ideas to help you design a better project.
In most homes, the kitchen is the start of the remodel. Usually, you want to make this space bigger and have more room for new appliances and even a kitchen nook, or a place to eat. Since kitchens are normally dependent on the square footage of your home, you may end up adding more space to your home in order to get the additional room. However, you may just want to do a kitchen touchup instead of a complete remodel. If you are thinking of selling your home, a complete kitchen remodel could pay you back, adding more value to your home in the long run. You can get 92.2 percent of your investment back when you update a kitchen or bathroom. Some basic renovations could be that you resurface cabinets, lay down new floor, or replacing single appliances, such as the stove or refrigerator. These renovations could cost between $1,000 and $5,000. Further renovations could mean moving your kitchen around to make more space and add in new appliances, which could start at a minimum of $5,000. A complete remodel will get your kitchen and nothing in your kitchen will usually remain the same. The square footage will come into play here, so if you have a small budget, you should plan for $30,000, but you could easily go past $100,000 depending on the square footage.
Bathrooms are another major choice for renovations. Usually older homes will have smaller bathrooms with ugly tile or sinks. You can update the single parts of the bathroom that you don't like, or you can opt for adding more space and even changing the layout of your bathroom. So, how do you do this on a limited budget? You definitely can't do a complete renovation on a limited budget. New bathroom appliances and flooring can easily put you over $50,000. If you can do the renovations yourself, you can keep your bathroom renovations under $2,000 for small changes and upgrades. Some things that you can do to make your bathroom appear bigger: remove clutter, replace items with smaller vanities, swap out the mirror, wall mount shelves and cabinets, and add a light paint.
For this piece, we'll focus on the master bedroom. There are many reasons homeowners want to remaster their main sanctuary. You can push out a wall to add more square footage or simply change the floor and colors in your bedroom. You can look at a few things for inspiration with a bedroom remodel. Do you like your bedroom's ambiance? You can change the décor to match your tastes better, and you can do this easily, just by changing the paint or adding new floor.
