Give your home an upgrade
Yes. You can complete that improvement project to make your home a happier place with a budget of $10,000. Or maybe less! There is an actual formula, and we’ll reveal it here.
All that time spent navigating social media platforms during the pandemic had an effect: we’ve seen how transforming our home into the most charming and comfortable shelter is a must—and many people are undertaking this task! Did you know that a survey by a well-known remodeling platform revealed that 9 out of 10 homeowners decided to do some remodeling because of the pandemic?
These 3 home improvement projects are among the most popular, adding value to your property, and could be completed on a budget of $10K or less.
- A 5-star bathroom – Remodeling an existing bathroom and even building an additional one is a wise investment you will enjoy many times a day. Let the measuring tape be your best friend; measure the appropriate distances against the sizes of the sanitary equipment and opt for bathroom concepts that provide greater accessibility, as you never know when you could face mobility challenges. Choose durable materials in timeless colors that will look relevant at least 15 years down the road. Give yourself the pleasure of adding features that may seem like luxuries but ultimately make your life and cleaning much easier, such as hand showers.
- Surgery for the heart of your home – With a budget of $10,000 you can change the kitchen backsplash and buy more efficient appliances that could save energy. You can replace the cabinet doors and, if you have the room, create an island-type module with wheels to prepare your dishes. Also with a modest amount, how about building a small coffee bar?
- A new outdoor-indoor space – If you have a terrace attached to the living room or dining room, you can install safety glass sliding doors and level the floor to create the feeling of a single space. Choose a material like the one on your interior floor, and presto! The dynamics of your home will change forever with more natural lighting and ventilation.
No loose ends
Budget and time are equally crucial if you are embarking on one of these projects. Financing that does not require collateral sounds good; look for a combination featuring a low-interest rate and comfortable payments. That, added to a good dose of planning, will be essential.
Consider that nowadays, there is a high demand for skilled and responsible workers, so starting the plan with enough time takes away a high percentage of the stress these projects generate. How about hiring the services of a professional designer? It’s an investment that can save you time and money because they will point you in the right direction and may even share some contacts with you. Do your homework and arrive at your initial meeting with a list of your needs and tastes.
Stick to both the work plan and the budget by looking for workers with real experience, businesses offering competitive prices, and the best guarantees. And the most important thing: keep in mind that even with good preparation, unforeseen events can happen, so setting aside a portion of the overall budget for this aspect will be your winning move.
