renovationWhen it comes to home improvement, additions to the bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchen are popular—and pricey—upgrades. According to Remodeling magazine's 2018 Cost vs. Value Report, the average cost of a kitchen remodel is $21,198; the average bath remodel runs $19,134; and adding a bed and bath combined for a master suite totals $123,420.

The average homeowner in a recent survey by Trulia is budgeting (a realistic) $8,879 for a remodel this year—and according to Trulia's Design Panel, they can defray expenses and stay on-target. The best projects (for a steal!) are:

Bathroom

  • Add storage (go the inexpensive route with shelving) and tile.
  • Install modern plumbing.
  • Replace the cabinets with a vanity.

Bedroom

  • Add a rug. (A design and disguise element.)
  • Brighten up with an accent wall and lighting.
  • Get a high-quality mattress, but lower-cost linens and pillows.

Kitchen

  • Add contemporary countertops and door knobs/pulls.
  • Customize the pantry with storage.
  • Give cabinets a facelift with new paint.

These budget-conscious improvements can keep you from overspending, the panel says, coming in, generally, at $10,000 or less for each room. It pays to spend wisely!
