What Houzz contributors are saying:
And while choosing to remodel your home shows that you’re willing to spend time and money, I don’t think anyone is opposed to saving a couple of bucks. There are many ways you can save money in a remodel. You can choose moderately priced materials. You can manage the work yourself (though you may spend extra money on headache medication or therapy). But one of the most common money-saving strategies is for people to reuse certain items (usually higher-dollar pieces) from their existing home. This is a great practice, for the most part. It cuts costs, for sure, but sometimes it cuts corners on quality or safety. Before you go writing “Save” on everything, take a second to really think through whether you should reuse an item or replace it.
