Can you renovate a home on a small budget? Yes!

Are you planning on selling your Austin Texas home but you want to make some renovations to it first before you list it? If so, you are making a smart choice because, it’s proven the fact that homes which have been recently renovated, stand out and are easier to sell than homes that were not recently renovated.

Like some homeowners in the Austin area, you may not be able to spend up to $30,000 (or more) on a renovation budget. You may only have $5,000 or less to spend. The good news is that you can definitely renovate your home with a smaller renovation budget by following these tips

Paint your home

The first and most obvious renovation that you can make your home is to paint it, everywhere, on the inside and also on the outside.

Painting your home is one of the most effective renovations that you can make because, a fresh coat of paint will help to breathe new life into your home and make it feel recently updated even if you have not made any updates to your house in years.

Cover the ugly in your kitchen

Another easy, cost-effective renovation that you can make to your home is to cover the “ugly” in your kitchen. By ugly, I mean those kitchen cabinets which maybe holdovers from the 1980s or later.

Even though your friends and family members may be encouraging you to rip those cabinets down and have new cabinets installed, you can sand, refinish or repaint those cabinets, then install new drawer pulls and knobs on the cabinets to give them a new, updated look.

Bring in the new to your bathroom

Yes, it’s true that kitchen and bathroom renovations are often very costly but the good news about renovating a bathroom is that you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to make your bathroom look fantastic.

Thankfully, you can breathe new life into your bathroom by bringing in the new. This can be done by replacing the old bathroom scene with a new vessel sink, refinishing the bathroom cabinets, replacing the cabinet hardware, replacing the tile or installing a new toilet in the bathroom.
