In a recent interview, Neil Parsons, owner of Design Build Planners, was asked the following questions about basic home improvement projects that may be achieved for less than $1,000.
Q: For homeowners looking to make home improvement upgrades, but only have a $1,000 budget, which areas of the home should they focus on? Why?
A: First, I believe that all homeowners should have a list of projects that need to be done. As we all have learned, anything committed in writing is more likely to get done. The list should be broken in two categories: things that need to be done and things than you want to have done. For example, you need to address a leaking faucet or pipe but, you want to change a kitchen countertop. I always suggest completing the needs before the wants for many reasons. One reason is goal setting. People will want to get through the needs as quick as possible to be able to start on the wants.
In the 80’s and 90’s the term “master bathroom” had a standard of expectation that included five fixtures: two sinks, a toilet, a shower, and a jetted tub built into a tiled deck. During that period almost every upscale new single home, townhome, and condo were designed with this master bathroom. The minimum area required to reasonably fit all five fixtures is 80 square feet. Roomier ones exceed 100 square feet. At the same time, a master bathroom upgrade was a popular request for many in homes built earlier. Often the remodeling work would include stealing some space from a bedroom or a closet to achieve the room required.
