Now that you are a homeowner, it’s time to start thinking about possible renovations. The fact is that the easiest time to renovate the rooms in your home are before you are moved in because you won’t have any furniture or accessories in the way. This will mean that you will be able to gut rooms and add those aspects of decorating that you have always wanted. One room that will pretty much demand an early makeover will of course be the kitchen. Many aging kitchens sorely need updates both as far as the appliances go and as far as the overall structure and design goes. However, if you’ve just purchased a house, chances are money is a little tight. Therefore, you might be thinking that you just do not have the funds available to really remodel the kitchen the way you desire. Believe it or not, you can remodel a kitchen on a budget; you just have to know when to start shopping for your supplies. Also, you could complete a mini-remodel that just includes new kitchen cabinets. That would be a great way to fit the remodel into your budget quite easily. There are many types of kitchen cabinets that will be friendly on your budget so that you won’t have to break the bank during the remodeling process.

You have just purchased your home. Whether it is a new home or just new to you, you can save money on your energy bills by conducting a home energy analysis. The following steps will allow you to plug air leaks in your home and determine if any other energy-draining conditions exist. When conducting your home energy audit, be sure to keep a tablet and a pencil or pen with you so that you can jot down any problems you may find.
