4 Low-Cost Remodeling Ideas for Your Home In Omaha, NE.

You probably already know that your home in Omaha, NE needs occasional TLC, but you just can’t seem to pull together a budget for it. Apart from regular maintenance routines, doing occasional remodeling and redecoration can add value to your home while helping you to stay on trend.

Remodeling projects can, however, be costly, especially if you’re doing hard remodeling and decoration. Luckily for you, today we will be sharing top four low-cost remodeling ideas you can do to your home and get value for your money while at it. Have a look:

1. Refresh Your Rooms with Paint
When was the last time you repainted your home’s interior? Painting is the easiest, cheapest and most transformative way to upgrade your home’s interior. If your walls are starting to look a little faded, soiled or washed down, a quick fresh coat of paint might be all that you need. If you don’t have a budget to re-paint your entire interior, you can only choose to paint public and high-traffic areas such as the dining room, living room, kitchen, bathroom, and the hallway.

You can also take this opportunity to flip your interior colors a little bit if you’re tired of your current color scheme. If you’re considering reselling your home any time soon, stay away from bold sharp colors and instead consider quieter neutrals that appeal to most people. For the best, durable results, you should consider hiring a professional painting contractor for help.

2. Renew Old Wooden Flooring with Paint
The floor receives the most abuse compared to any type of surface in your home. Wooden floors that don’t have a carpet might start to show splinters, fading, traffic lanes and even mold in areas where they are exposed to high moisture levels. If your wooden floor is starting to look little a little dated and tired, a fresh coat of floor paint or stain will update it to match your newly painted walls or installed décor. Again, hiring a professional painting contractor is the easiest and cheapest way to have your floors repainted or stained hassle-free.

3. Have Carpets Professionally Cleaned
Your carpet is the biggest décor item in your home, but it’s easy to neglect it until it’s significantly soiled or worn out. When your carpet looks dirty and old, you can bet it will water down the good looks of your other interior décor items. Other than the appearance, your carpet collects all kinds of allergens, particles and even molds that get absorbed into the fibers. This ruins air quality while gradually wearing down your carpet.

What you might not know is that vacuuming is not efficiently enough to suck up all the dirt, dust, grit, and mold that might be embedded in your carpet’s deeper fibers. The only way to get rid of all the dirt particles and mold is by having your carpet professionally cleaned. The best part is that it’s affordable, and you only need to have it done 1-2 times a year.

4. Have Your Kitchen Cabinets Refinished
Your kitchen cabinets occupy the largest space in your kitchen. If they’re clear signs of paint or stain failure, they can make your entire kitchen look neglected. Thankfully, you don’t have to replace your entire set of cabinets –if they’re in good physical condition, all you need is a fresh coat of paint or stain. At a small charge, you can have them refinished and restore the overall appeal of your kitchen without having to do a full kitchen remodel.

Bottom Line
As you can see, remodeling and redecorating your home doesn’t have to be a costly affair. There’re many more low-cost home remodeling ideas such as installing stair runners, new light fixtures, repainting your ceiling, buying new doormats and area rugs, and so on. The best part is you don’t have to do them all at once. You can start with the most affordable ones moving up as funds become available.
