Making the Biggest Impact While Saving Money on Home Remodels

When you are working with a budget, a full home remodel may feel out of reach. However, by shopping smart, knowing where to go to get a complete start to finish service, and getting deals for your remodeling project, you can achieve a new look for your home renovation without unnecessary overspending.

Here are a few great tips to get the most out of your experience with a Design + Build contractor.

Kitchen Remodels on a Budget

Kitchens can be an expensive renovation project to undertake. While a full kitchen remodel may be costly, focusing your design attention on a few focal points in the kitchen can result in a completely new space. Aim your focus at optimizing for function while balancing with striking features that capture attention to give your kitchen the biggest bang for your buck. You can get the new look and feel you desire and save at the same time.

When it comes to the kitchen, cabinets make up one of the biggest visual impact. Cabinets are a big part of what we notice first in a kitchen remodel, and giving old cabinets a facelift can easily transform an entire kitchen. Since HDR Remodeling designs and builds so many custom kitchens, we have insights and deals into the finest quality of cabinets without having to shell out for big box brands, which can reduce the overall cost of your remodeling project significantly.

HDR can offer you high quality affordable cabinet design options. You don't need brand names to get good quality, but you do have to be selective when choosing the quality of cabinets. A good contractor will know their way around kitchen cabinets and can help you find cabinets for a sensible price that will still have a show stopping effect.

Bathroom Remodels that are Worth the Money

Bathroom remodels do not typically require as large of an investment as a kitchen remodel if you know what to focus on and what to avoid. For the biggest impact, focus on an upgrade for your bathroom sink and countertop. This is the most visible part of your bathroom, and replacing these can elevate the entire look and feel of your bathroom.

The cost of bathroom remodels start to add up when the renovation requires moving the plumbing around. This is often where the biggest expenses in a remodeling project are incurred. By keeping the foundation of the bathroom intact and focusing on upgraded structures like bathroom sinks, bathtubs and showers, and even the toilet bowl, you can create an aesthetically appealing space that’s worth the investment.
