Let’s face it: Home renovations can be expensive. It’s tough nowadays to find the kind of money it requires, but you may not need to put off those upgrades. Other Americans aren’t. There’s been a 17 percent increase in kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects over the past two years, according to a recent survey from the National Association of Home Builders.
Other popular projects, according to the survey, are replacing windows and doors, repairing property damage, and adding rooms. If you want to start your dream renovation project, you can do so by finding creative ways to work within your budget. One of the best ways to save is being flexible in your design. It’s not hard to find stores carrying discontinued, overstock or unneeded special-ordered items, and that can mean big savings for you.
