Home Renovation for Rentals
Just because you’re not ready to invest in purchasing a home long-term, doesn’t mean that you should rule out the unique updates that you want to make to your new place. Furniture adds dynamic, rugs and lighting fixtures can change the feel, but there are so many other options out there that we don’t think about. It’s important to do your research on what your building will allow, but you may be surprised about the creative freedom they give you. This article outlines best practices for turning a temporary house into your home.
Save on Your Kitchen
Home renovation can be a money pit, and kitchen plays a huge part in this pie chart. It starts with the functional updates, maybe your dishwasher is faulty, or your sink clogs too easily. It can quickly escalate to a new preference of wall color, floor tiles, finishes on your counter, or brand new additions. While some of these are more aesthetic changes, others are necessary in a timely manner. And when things are necessary on a condensed timeline, the price tags generally go up. This article provides some workarounds so that your kitchen is properly updated, but your wallet remains the same.
