We’ve all been cooped up in our houses a little too long, so it’s only natural to want to change some things up. You’ve seen the same walls, the same rooms and the same floors for months, isn’t it time for a remodel? It doesn’t have to break the bank, either.
It’s easy to renovate a small part of your house and live life in the best of both worlds. You’ve escaped the boredom with your house, but you haven’t spent your life savings on a full remodel. Here are some things in your home that you can renovate that won’t break the bank.
Stairs are a big part of any household, but they are quick and easy to remodel. Even just removing the layer of carpet over the stairs can create a big difference in how a room feels.
If you don’t have carpet over your stairs, there are plenty of other easy remodels that you can even do on your own. If you don’t want to remodel by yourself, there are even more opportunities to fix up your stairs when you involve the stair remodeling professionals.
You can redo banisters, either just by repainting or by tearing out the old one entirely. Although this is a small change, it can have an amazing effect on the look of the house. Stairs going from dark to light can open up and lighten a whole room. Hardwood stairs can change the feel of the home. Whatever you decide to do with your stairs, it will make a huge difference in the look of your home and it won’t cost too much. Stairs are usually pretty small and straight forward, so you won’t be breaking the bank if you switch up the stairs a little.
Adding a patio can be perfect if you love your rooms, but are just starting to get a little bored of them. It can give you more space outside to spread out safely and adds a lot of value to your house.
You also don’t need a lot of room to add a patio. Wherever you live, as long as it isn’t in an apartment, you most likely have the outdoor space to add a small patio and awning. Since a patio isn’t carpeted, furnished or created with electricity, it is much cheaper than remodeling the inside of your home.
If you want to do it yourself, you can do that too. There are plenty of instructional videos or articles teaching a homeowner how to build a stone or brick patio. Overall, it’s a beautiful addition to your house that will give you more square footage at a low price.
The details make the difference
Finally, an easy way to refresh a room is to change up the hardware or the paint. Paint is not nearly as expensive as a whole remodel, so you even may be motivated to get the whole house painted a different color. Changing up a color scheme in a room or a house can make a huge difference in the way you see that room. Color can make a room or house feel bigger, lighter or change the feeling entirely. Hardware can do the same thing. Changing from silver to gold hardware changes the house just enough for you to notice how amazing your home looks when you walk through the door, and it is nowhere near as expensive as a full remodel.
So don’t despair if you look up the price for a full home remodel and find that it’s out of your price range. There are plenty of projects like this one that will add to your house for much less money. With resources aplenty all over the internet, your DIY home remodels, or your professional home remodels, will give fresh life to your house.
