In Building or remodelling a house, everything needs a careful planning in order to reduce the risk of a wasteful or non-compliance use of money for the ideas. Hence, the following tips are effective to be used in saving the cost of a home improvement so that even if you will be able to remodel the house on a tight budget:

–    Define the concept of home renovation

At this stage, you have to determine what you want to remodel or repair in the house, how to design, whether you want to reuse the old material or not and so forth. Thus, if you decide to use the old material, the material will be unloaded carefully to prevent any damage to happen. In this way, we will be able to predict whether the end result will be able to match what we want or not. Otherwise, if the material happens to get damaged that the results do not match, we have to use some extra costs to replace the damaged material. By defining the concept, it also helps builders to work faster.

–    Determine the quality of building materials and building materials to be used

If indeed our funds are limited, there is no harm we use quality goods are being or used goods. If we choose carefully, we can find second hand but good quality.

The middle-quality materials can be used, for example, for ceramic floors, wood, frame. Ceramics are fitted with good technique can produce beautiful floor despite using a quality ceramic medium. While the parts that required the use of goods with good quality is at the foundation of the house, water pipes are planted, the structure of the building, the roof frame. Can imagine if the part had a leak or broken, of course, we have to dismantle again which means the need to spend money again. For the exterior paint, it is also recommended to use good quality because the outside of the house is usually exposed to rain, hot sun or moist air.

–    Eliminate one of the works in the home renovation

What is meant here is that we do not do a piece of work, so that time is used more quickly and can save costs, for example without the plastered wall to make the walls seem natural

–    Select the payment method

The methods of payment are generally divided into two, which are the daily payment or the whole payment. If indeed, we are sure what will be renovated and we already know the concept of home renovation is done, then it is better to use a contract system. Conversely, when we are not a clear concept of the renovation we can pay the builders on a daily basis.
