It used to be that with durable and affordable flooring, you only had a small handful of choices. Hardwood floors or vinyl flooring, pretty much, and forget any real choice when it came to designs. These days, there are tons of options on the market, whether you go to a flooring outlet, buy online or pop into Lowe’s. No matter what type of flooring you’re interested in, you can find durable, functional and great-looking flooring at reasonable prices. Vinyl, wood, epoxy and other coated flooring, and more. You can install it yourself to save a few dollars, with many types of flooring fairly easy to DIY, or you can hire a professional.
There are dozens of ways to spruce up your windows, from adding shutters to the outside of your home to replacing the window treatments inside your house. The latest trend is to install wood windows in your home – they are durable, classic and go with any decor choice. You can find the best wood windows for your home as well as other types of windows pretty much anywhere, in a wide variety of style and budget choices.
Appliances and Furniture
When doing a remodel on a budget, a great option to consider is going second-hand. Check out your local Habitat for Humanity, as well as antiques stores and used appliance centers for items that you need. There’s no reason to feel iffy about buying used – more and more people are doing the very same these days, in the interest of living more sustainably, saving money and finding one of a kind, unique options for their home. You never know, you might find that diamond in the rough accent piece, like a vintage hutch or retro cooktop, that you’ve been looking for all your life.
A quick peruse through the paint aisle of any home improvement store is bound to overwhelm you. There’s so many choices these days, with thousands of color options, as well as myriad types of paint for any surface or aesthetic. There’s metallic paint, glitter paint, textured paint, even chalkboard paint! Most styles are affordable and you can get any custom color mixed to match whatever your style choice is. Just adding a fresh coat of paint to a drab room can turn it into a whole new atmosphere. Grab some painting tape and a roller and get to painting!
Revamping your home with just a few simple little tweaks is so easy and fun. It doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg to make your house seem like new again.
