Here is our list of the top 3 renovations that will quickly, and cost effectively, give your home the change you are looking for or help get it ready for market.
- Kitchen: Kitchens are often the selling feature of a home; it is where a lot of time entertaining and preparing meals is spent. If your kitchen is well outdated, replacing the cabinets would definitely give it a modern face-lift. IDL Contracting has relationships with cabinetry suppliers that would allow you to have custom sized cabinets fit the space of your current kitchen. Check out Triangle Kitchen for some inspiration and door style options. If you are looking into doing some work yourself, consider a cabinet refinishing product. The process can be completed in just one weekend! All the cabinets will need to be removed, sanded down, painted/stained with a product of your choice and re-installed. Like any change in your home, a little bit of elbow grease can go a long way.
- Bathrooms: Depending on the size of the bathroom, you could give a quick facelift for under $500. A new vanity can go on sale for as low as $98.00, and new tile can completely change the look and feel of the room. Tiles range in price from $1.00 a square foot to over $4.00. If you have a small floor space, we consider going with a higher quality tile to get more of a wow factor. Check out the options at Floors Plus located in Burnside. The labor cost is mainly fixed so the cost difference would only be the price of the product. Make sure to ask for a self sealing grout as well. A new shower curtain, some decor or a behind the toilet unit can really change up the look too.
- Interior Painting: Nothing makes an impression on a room quite like a fresh coat of paint. We recommend sticking to earthy tones in main living areas. They are timeless, match most decor and are liked by the majority.
