Hi I’m Tim Gipson and I’m going to talk to you about some cheap remodeling ideas. Now
0:05
whenever we look at remodeling typically in bathrooms or kitchens depending on the scope
0:12
of work that you are doing you can spend a little bit of money or you can spend a whole
0:18
lot of money and typical bathrooms or full kitchen renovations can run several thousand
0:25
dollars but some cheap things to look at and to really get a new updated look without having
0:30
to spend a lot of money and the best thing you can look at is actually refreshening the
0:35
paint so in this particular room here this room has come in and we put a fresh new coat
0:41
of paint on it and there is something about fresh paint that just gives you a whole new
0:45
look to the room and particularly if you look at colors and there is actually different
0:52
styles of paint that you can do. You can either do a regular paint job like this or it is
0:58
even very easy to achieve some faux finishes where you get some textured looks or even
1:04
some marble look or a distressed type of look on your walls can give it a really nice look.
1:12
From there you can paint a room like this for anywhere from about $25 to $50 on a small
1:23
bathroom so painting is your most basic thing to spend your money on and it won’t take a
1:31
lot of money to add a nice look to your room. From there we look at mirrors and fixtures
1:38
so if we look right here we spent about $50 on these pair of mirrors and about just a
1:48
little less than $200 on the light fixtures. So by updating light fixtures by updating
1:56
the mirrors and doing the painting you can spend just a few hundred dollars and really
2:03
get a nice new look. From there we could look at doing fixtures, doing knobs but even on
2:11
your cabinets just replacing these knobs, the knobs will run anywhere from about $1.50
2:16
to $2.00 a piece so you can update the look just by changing your hardware on your cabinets.
