Where can you cut corners during remodeling?

Despite the many warnings about home renovation shortcuts, there are things you can do to save money without suffering the typical home renovation setbacks or sacrificing safety.

However, it is important to remember the rules.

Never skimp on security.

Always get building permits, even if they seem useless.

Buy high quality materials in small quantities instead of cheaper materials.

If there is a need to reduce the overall cost, it is possible to make some significant changes without much impact.

Hollow core interior doors are much less expensive than solid doors and can be retrofitted at any time if budget allows.

kitchen and bathroom countertops can be easily swapped out later when lower-cost countertops need to be temporarily installed to stay within budget.

Opt for ceramic tiles instead of imported designer marble.

Reduce the scope of your project so that you use less material instead of cheaper material.
