TITLE: Cheap Remodeling Ideas
NARRATION: Hey, I’m Tim Gipson, and I’m going to talk to you about some cheap remodeling ideas. Now, whenever we look at remodeling, typically in bathrooms or kitchens, depending on the scope of work that you are doing, you can spend a little bit of money or you can spend a little bit of money, or you can spend a whole lot of money. Typical full bathroom or kitchen renovations can run several thousand dollars.
But some cheap things to look at to really get a new updated look without having to spend a lot of money, the best thing you can look at is actually refreshening the paint. So, in this particular room here, we put a fresh new coat of paint on it, and there is something about fresh paint that just gives you a whole new look to the room. And particularly if you look at different colors, and there is actually different styles of painting that you can do. You can either do a regular paint job like this, or it is even very easy to achieve some faux finishes where you get some textured looks or some even marble look or a distressed type of look on your walls, which can give it a really nice look. From there, you can paint a room like this for anywhere from about $25 to $50 on a small bathroom. So painting is your most basic thing to spend your money on. It won’t take a lot of money to add a nice look to your room.
From there, we look at mirrors and fixtures. So, if we look right here, we spent about $50 on these pair of mirrors, and about just a little less than $200 on the light fixtures. So, by updating light fixtures, updating mirrors, and doing the painting, you can spend just a few hundred dollars and really get a nice new look. From there, we could look at doing fixtures, doing knobs, but even on your cabinets, just replacing these knobs, the knobs will run anywhere from about $1.50 to $2.00 a piece. So you can update the look just by changing your hardware on your cabinets. So I’m Tim Gipson and that’s some ideas on some cheaper modeling ideas.
