Have you ever gotten lost in a Pinterest home daydream? Where you found yourself on Pinterest for maybe a little too long pinning home decor, home remodeling ideas or beautiful looking rooms designed with porcelain, ceramic, stone, tile, wood and laminate?
I sure have! It is not uncommon for me to get lost in one of these Pinterest daydreams. Pinterest has an endless selection of pictures to keep my dreams going on and on. I love pinning boards of beautiful homes, weddings, events and more. Here are some examples from my Pinterest home board:
I love dreaming of beautiful homes and exquisite remodel jobs. Someday I know I will have the home of my dreams, but until then, my husband and I can do small DIY home remodels like finishing our deck and setting up a mini home theatre in our basement. We did both this year, and they have proven to be rewarding and made a huge difference in the ‘feel’ of our home.
As you are probably aware, I am a wise spender, but I also take pride in a job well done. I feel there are many ways to do a good job on a remodel, without breaking the bank. For instance having experienced friends and family help you with a remodel job. I bet you could make a list of people who are handy, have done a similar remodels or even work in the particular industry. Talk to them about helping out with your home project. They might be willing to work at a very discounted rate. Also you can find good help on Craigslist – just ask for recommendations of their previous work first. These folks might just be in-between jobs or recently laid off. You might find someone with a excellent resume and lots of experience! This will save you time and money, and you won’t have to learn how to do it all on your own.
Beyond finding different avenues of help (friends, family, Craigslist) with your remodel, you should also look for discounted materials, closeout products and off-brand names. Your remodel can add up quickly if you are not spending wisely. One place to begin your search for great deals on your do-it-yourself items is Floor and Decor Outlet. For instance, you can find low price flooring and the best selection in hardwood, tiles and more – at reasonable prices.
So if you are looking for an affordable option for a home renovation – I highly recommend making a list of people who have experience and checking out Floor and Decor for reasonably-priced materials.
