Home Remodel | If you are doing a home remodel, you probably won’t be shocked to learn that the costs can and do add up quickly. When you factor in tools, materials, your time, and the time of the people helping you, the cost of a home remodel can be staggering. There are a few tips and tricks to remodeling your home on a budget and getting the best deals possible.
- Buy After Season- Purchase your materials after the remodeling season. If you live somewhere that is cold and snowy in the winter, this may be right after summer, around the time that back to school starts. Home remodeling stores are putting this season’s materials on clearance to make room for the next seasons needs. If you have space to store materials until your project starts you can save a lot of money by buying after season.
- Take Advantage of Rebates and Cash Back Incentives- Throughout the year, most home renovation stores will participate in rebate programs through brands that they carry or may offer a cash back reward on the in-store credit cards. Menards is known for frequently offering an 11% rebate on everything in-store. You just have to remember to save your receipt, pick up the rebate form, and mail it all in. If you can do that, you will save a lot on your remodeling costs.
- DIY Your Fixtures- Upcycling is a great trend that saves a lot of money. Rather than purchasing your home fixtures brand new, look for sink basins, cabinets, tables, tile, and other resources at flea markets or bargain stores. These pieces can often easily be refurbished to look modern, new, and unique.
