Foot traffic in kitchens, living rooms, and hallways scuffs, scratches, and wears down wood floors over time. While homeowners may consider replacing parts or the entire wood floor, refinishing the wood is another option.
The DIY method involves sanding down the wood floor and then re-staining it, which takes a lot of elbow grease and time to complete. Depending on the square footage, you can refinish the hardwood within ₹10000 to 15000. However, if you decide to call a professional, you might have to bear a cost of ₹15000 and ₹40000. The decision is yours!
When cabinets are constantly opened and closed, the hardware can wear down, hinges can squeak, and areas can crack. Instead of replacing the entire cabinet door, you can purchase knobs, hinges, and pulls from a local home improvement store or hardware store. Then, over the weekend, you can remove the old hardware and replace it. And you need only screwdrivers and a drill. So this way you will give your cabinets new support and strength for just a few hundred bucks.
If the paint on your kitchen or bathroom cabinets begins to chip over time, you can remove the doors with a screwdriver. Then all you have to do is to repaint them. Alternatively, you can have them professionally painted. This will save you from having to replace the entire cabinet and allows you to personalize them for the room as well.
If you decide to paint them yourself, make sure to use high-quality paint that will last so you don't have to redo it soon. Make sure to cover the hinges and knobs while painting as paint on hinges makes them immovable.
Upgrading your lights from fluorescent or incandescent to LED is a low-cost project for those who want a greener home. LED bulbs can be purchased for around ₹100 at an electrical store or even supermarket and installed in almost any fixture. These will save you money on your utility bill while still emitting the same glow without the bright, buzzing haze.
Many older homes have appliances that are oddly colored in pastels, pinks, and blues. While these appliances are still functional, they do not meet today's stainless steel demand. Instead of replacing them, homeowners can now paint their appliances.
Homeowners can purchase painting kits to transform these vintage appliances from old to new without having to spend thousands of rupees on brand-new appliances. If you are unsure about doing it yourself, there are professionals who refinish appliances, give them a call.
These are just a few of the low-cost remodelling options available to homeowners. These methods are also necessary to revitalize your living space while saving you thousands of rupees.
Similarly, you can upgrade your home’s plumbing, furniture upholstery, heating and cooling, and other small projects. You will not only save time and effort but also avoid a big blow on your savings.
