The issue that worried everyone when planning home renovation project is budget. No matter you are remodelling or small renovation, you can actually cut down the cost by planning wisely on design, materials, and timing. Interior design is one of the important parts when planning the renovation project. In this article, you will know more on how you can save up your budget on home and furnishing when renovating your house.
Increase Space Efficiency
Many of us may have limited space for home, especially kitchen. It is not necessary to knock off the wall to expand the space. You can add on hogging shelves with cabinet, pull out drawer contained rack for canned goods. Some empty space can be used to store your grocery or things that you wish to hide from public, by adding shelves or cabinets.
Managing Trash and Recycle Items
If you are good in DIY, you can have a great saving by using lightly used fixture and building materials. If you are remodelling your home, use the furniture available and give a little change on it. You can either repaint the shelf or rebuild with the material available to useful item. Don’t forget to move away unwanted item from your house. You can donate to charity organisation or call up recycle company to pick up the item.
Close Communicate With Contractor And Architect
If you have the plan of redo the flooring, you may ask your contractor if they have leftover stock from previous job. You can create a different feel of flooring by mix matching different type of tiles. If your renovation project involvement is big, architect will be involved in the construction. Consult an architect regarding the construction drawing, examine the site and give suggestion on it. You can also look for contractor to help monitoring the process.
Do Everything By Yourself
To save up the cost of renovation, you can do it your own by spending some times. Things that can do it by yourself are demolition, painting, sanding, and even installation. If you bought self installation furniture from places like Ikea, you can save up the delivery fess by picking up the goods yourself. When planning the renovation work, avoid moving kitchen sink or toilet as plumbing require many works and higher cost. If your new plan requires moving these, consider upgrading the pipes too. Consider if the size of accessories fit your home to avoid getting the wrong measurement.
Do Research And Make Decision Early
Before start the renovation work, give a visit to hardware shop to check out the price of fixtures and appliances. If you are not sure what you need, you may talk to the shop owner to get suggestion. Every decision should make before contractor came and start work.
