The 3 Best DIY Tips For Remodeling On A Budget

When working on a budget, it’s still possible to get the dream bathroom, custom closet, or high-end kitchen you desire. You just need a little know-how and a can-do attitude. Whether you’re an avid do-it-yourselfer or are just starting out, here are the best DIY tips for remodeling on a budget.

Plan Ahead

When embarking on a home remodeling project, you need to plan ahead and set a budget. Start by creating a remodeling project planner that defines your goals, with a checklist of what you will need for the job, including tools, materials and any required permits. Next, create a home renovation schedule that will help to keep you on track — but be realistic. If you are new to the world of DIY, know that there may be a learning curve and projects could take a bit longer than anticipated. Allow enough flexibility in your timeline and budget for any unexpected bumps and issues may arise.

Shop Smart

When you shop online at The RTA Store, you can save up to 50% off big box store prices. If you are tackling that dream bathroom or high-end kitchen update, ready-to-assemble cabinets for the home are the most budget-friendly option, because you do the assembly and installation work yourself. All parts are pre-cut and all holes are pre-drilled, so it’s easier than you might think. Read our home remodeling project how-to’s, go over assembly instructions, and when in doubt, know that we’re here to help! You can reach us by phone, live chat, or email.
