Whether you are planning on selling your property, or simply want to give it a bit of a revamp, a renovation project can ultimately add value to your home as well as make it look better!
The most important part of any DIY project is the planning. Work out the cost of materials, equipment and any external services, and work it into your budget - cutting certain jobs out if they extend past your financial resources.
While spending money on the small details can be tempting, it is more economical to invest in a bigger project which will create a more obvious change. For example, spending hundreds of dollars on fancy light switches is unlikely to have the same impact as what painting a house would.
As the two busiest rooms of a house, spending any amount of money renovating the bathroom and kitchen is going to increase the value of your home. Prospective buyers typically view these two rooms as the most important, therefore by rejuvenating these areas you will maximise chances of a sale.
Kitchen and bathroom DIY jobs can be as simple or as complex as you like - for an affordable renovation project, repaint each room, replace old appliances and remove old fittings in place of modern ones.
