8 Mistakes We Make When We Try to Cheap Out on Renovations

Renovations are both time-consuming and expensive. We want to do everything as well as possible and as cheap as possible. Even though we can find materials today at a good price, there are still some things we should never cheap out on. If you buy bad materials for the most basic purposes, you are bound to have to pay twice to fix your mistakes. But it is not just about money. Did you know low-quality windows made of PVC can increase your risk of allergies and asthma?

We want to prevent you from making these mistakes, so we are going to tell you which parts of home renovations are actually worth the money.

Floor coverings

The first reason why you should choose a high-quality floor covering is that replacing the cheaper options will be really hard. Before you buy the covering, make sure you understand where exactly you want this surface.

If it is going in the kitchen or the bathroom, it is better to buy tile, because if water leaks onto laminate, you will have to replace it. As for other rooms, regular laminate and high-quality linoleum are equally good.

Wallpaper or any other wall surface

Even when it comes to the cheapest projects, designers recommend buying premium-segment wallpapers or wall paint. The thing is, good paint is easier to put on the wall and you’ll need less of it, compared to cheaper options. And expensive wallpapers are harder to damage.

Also, good paint is more durable. It doesn’t get bleached by the sun as much, so the walls will remain bright for a longer time and it also doesn’t cause allergic reactions.
