101 practical home remodeling ideas that can be completed on a budget. These home remodeling projects are a mix of inexpensive ideas and do-it-yourself projects, perfect for the average homeowner.
Sick of remodeling ideas that are only possible for the rich?
The 101 home remodeling ideas in this list will help you make your home more comfortable, valuable, and functional. Most important of all, they are affordable, and almost all of them can be done without hiring an expensive contractor.
While not all these projects may be appropriate for your home, you should be able to find at least 5 to 10 to do over the next couple of months in your free time.
Even if they???re small projects, they will quickly add up and help you transform your home.
Upgrade to a Beadboard Ceiling
It???s a shame when beautiful decor is ruined by a hideous popcorn ceiling. One elegant solution is to install a beadboard ceiling.
The project appears deceptively simple. You???ll need to get beadboard from any local hardware store (easy), but then you need to measure it out correctly and cut it so that it fits your ceiling. While this is fairly easy for the experience DIY-er, it can be tricky lining things up right.
Remember, measure twice, cut once.
Bead board is relatively cheap, but you still don???t want to be ruining slabs by making the wrong cuts.
Replace Old Flooring with Vinyl Tiles
How much do you think the floor in the above picture cost?
In reality, only $50 and a few hours of time. If you have that ugly old laminate flooring (you know what I???m talking about), it???s time to replace it.
Look how easy this type of tiling is to put down: http://www.frugalfamilytimes.com/2012/07/how-to-install-peel-and-stick-vinyl.html
Once you dig up your old, nasty laminate, all you need to do is put down peel and stick down the vinyl tile.
While you could put down marble or ceramic tiling, it???s much more expensive and difficult.
Make Your Tile Look Like New With Grout Renew
If you???ve had tile in your bathroom for a while, you???ve likely noticed that the grout (the white stuff between tiles) has faded, which is both kind of gross and ugly.
You???ve probably tried many types of cleaning solutions involving baking soda and vinegar, but none have really worked. The best product by far costs about $10 from Home Depot, and it???s called grout renew.
Here???s a side-by-side comparison of tile with old grout and with the product on it:
Add Paneling to Your Wall
If you have a large exposed wall, and short trimming along the bottom, adding panels can add a great texture and look to a room.
You can find thin panels at a hardware store (the above panels were from Lowes) for $12-15 apiece. The project should take about 20 hours and cost around $250.
Tall Foyer? Build an Extra Platform for More Space
This is an ingenious way to free up some extra space, perfect for a small nook or play area for children.
This project will take at least a few weekends, and cost anywhere from $300-1000 depending on the layout of your home and the quality of materials you decide on. Still not bad compared to what a contractor would charge.
If you have no experience building a floor safe enough for holding weight, it would be a really good idea to have a contractor come in and at least inspect your new surface. Possibly before you???re even done so you can make changes if needed.
