Trulia Shares Tips to Renovate Kitchen, Bathroom and Bedroom for Under $10K

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Today, the Trulia® Design Panel, Trulia‘s expert group of interior designers, home stagers and professional organizers, released renovation ideas to refresh your home in the new year. Trulia recently commissioned a survey, conducted online by Harris Poll, of more than 2,000 Americans age 18 and older, about their home remodeling plans. We found 76 percent of Americans have plans to renovate or remodel their homes, and bathrooms (48%), kitchens (48%), and bedrooms (27%) top their agendas. But budgeting is important: On average, Americans who plan to remodel or renovate their home are willing to spend $8,879 on their projects. So we asked the Trulia Design Panel for their tips on renovating each of those rooms for less than $10,000.

“With these renovation tips from the Trulia Design Panel, we hope to provide homeowners and renters with affordable options for updating their home that aren’t overwhelming or out of reach,” said Lynnette Bruno, Trulia’s vice president of communications and research. “It’s no surprise that Americans want to focus on renovating the rooms they spend the most time in, like the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, so focusing efforts on these rooms will have the biggest impact on your home overall.”
