When you are looking to do a remodel of your home, it pays to consider doing a project in your kitchen or bathroom. Projects in these rooms tend to bring you some of the best return on the money you spend, with a minor kitchen remodel getting you back about 83% of what you spend in terms of increased home value and a bathroom addition returning about 86%. Not all kitchen and bathroom projects have to be major; in fact, you are likely to get more bang for your buck by doing a minor project, such as replacing a kitchen backsplash. Here are some ideas for minor kitchen and bath projects.

Replacing or adding tile in your kitchen or bath can be a good move. Tile countertop ideas range from tiny tile squares to using large floor tile-like squares. In addition to tile countertop ideas, there are a number of ways you can use tile in a kitchen or bath. You can do bathroom floor tile, a kitchen backsplash and shower floor tile and shower wall tile. The ideas with tile are endless, and it has a lot of advantages. It’s not that expensive, it looks great and it helps to seal out water in your kitchen and bath so you don’t have to worry about water damage or mold.

Changing out fixtures is another simple and inexpensive bathroom or kitchen remodel project you can do. It’s amazing how much different your kitchen or bath will look with a different sink faucet and handles. You also can change light fixtures to improve the look and replace cabinet handles and drawer pulls.

Another high-impact project that doesn’t cost a lot of money is to replace appliances. Moving from white appliances to stainless steel can instantly upgrade your kitchen to a sleeker, more modern look.

Of course, you can spend more money and do larger remodeling projects, such as replacing cabinets and flooring and redoing your shower, but the key is to keep things as simple as possible no matter how big or small the project. The more complicated things get, the more expensive it is going to be and the more likely you are to have problems.
