I came across a great article in Realtor Magazine I thought would be helpful and in times like these its always nice to hear about small budget ways to improve your home. Here are 10 Big-Impact, Low Cost Remodeling Projects anyone can do.
1.) Tidy Up Kitchen Cabinets
2.) Add or Replace Tile
3.) Add a Breakfast Bar
4.) Install Granite Tile instead of Slab
5.) Freshen up a Bathroom without Retiling- For example instead of replacing the tile, the existing grout can be lighting scarped and regrouted, which leaves a haze that can be buffed out and will make the tile look brand new.
6.) Freshen up the Basement
7.) Add a Room- Look for large spaces that can be enclosed to create a new bedroom for just the price of creating a wall.
8.) Spruce up Cabinet Fronts
9.) Replace Light Fixtures
10.) Tech-up the Garage- Most of the time you can replace the garage door opener with a remote touch-pad entry system. It costs about $425 and makes it look like a high-end system.
