  • Opening Intro -

    Your household expenses don’t have to get out of hand because of a home remodel.

    It’s possible to complete your renovation project without having to put a huge strain on your finances.


It will require a faithful, smart eye, but it’s very feasible to reduce and minimalize cost. Here are five smart ways to reduce household expenses during a home remodel.

Think Energy-Efficiency

By keeping the importance of saving energy in mind throughout the renovation, you’ll be able to conserve more while saving money in the process.

Cordless power tools and other energy-efficient equipment can save a lot on energy use. Lighting that’s designed to use less power can provide enough light to see clearly throughout each phase of your project while helping you save money.

Since no one will be able to occupy certain rooms while you remodel, you can save more energy and money by unplugging certain appliances and other devices that aren’t essential to the project. Additionally, renovating with an eye toward energy efficiency can help you save money over the long term.

Find kitchen appliances, lights, and other utilities that run with less power. New insulation or a better roof can make it easier to heat and cool your home. Thinking through the lens of energy efficiency can reduce the cost of both your remodel and your home’s upkeep.

Recycle Often

Recycling is a great way to go green while saving green during your home renovation. Recycled materials can often be purchased for less and used to help you complete a variety of tasks.

Recycling certain items instead of disposing them in the trash can also save you the money of having to take the materials to a local dump, which will likely charge you for accepting the waste.

Take Preventative Measures

Certain measures can be taken to prevent problems from happening that could cost you a lot more money. If any electrical work needs to be done as part of your home renovation, hiring a trained electrician to do the job can save you from dealing with any potentially costly or deadly electrical mishaps.

Getting improved gutter systems installed can also prevent home water damage that could cost you more money. Removing debris that could be sharp or otherwise dangerous as soon as possible can save you a trip to the emergency room.

Be Wise with Space

You can utilize your space in many clever ways to save money and improve the functionality of your home. Shelves and drawers that are placed under stairways, along walls or around other areas that take up little space can be used to store many of your items and will save you the expense of having to build additional storage areas. You also won’t need to pay to have many of your items stored in an offsite storage facility if you can find ways to utilize the space in your home the best.

You can stretch your dollar far while still completing your home remodel to your liking if you follow the right steps. Keeping these tips in mind will help you move in the right direction.

A remodel is expensive. You will need to properly budget for you. However, the above tips can help you save money before, during, and after the remodel. If you budget well and plan carefully, you can spend less than you anticipated.
