One of the best ways to save money while still achieving great results is to consider luxury vinyl plank flooring instead of engineered wood or hardwood. Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) flooring looks good and is incredibly durable, but costs far less than other types of flooring.

Another cost-saving solution that provides a lot of bang for your buck is switching to flushmount LED lights. Not only do they provide lots of light, but they are also energy efficient and easy to replace when you redecorate down the road.

When it comes to cabinet hardware, choosing simple knobs allows you to eventually switch to handles if desired, with only one hole in the door rather than two. And if you’re on a tight budget, there are amazing organizers and pullouts available from cabinet manufacturers as well as many inexpensive drawer organizers like this one that can make life easier after you move in.

Don't do it all at once

Finally, don’t try to do it all at once—take your time and add things like curtain rods, air conditioning, and kitchen backsplash down the road when you have saved up enough money for those projects.

With these tips at hand, renovating your house or building a new one doesn’t have to be overwhelming or unaffordable!
