Keeping your Statesville property’s appeal high can be a challenge for a single-family rental property investor on a budget. The good thing is that there are plenty of trendy and inexpensive materials you can use to update the look of your rental home. You can pick between wood, stone, or tile as budget-friendly materials for your Statesville rental homes.
Woodworks wonders in bringing an air of comfort and warmth to any area. But new hardwood is expensive. Reclaimed wood is a cheaper alternative that will definitely not make your property look cheap! Reclaimed woods are great budget-friendly materials for property investors because you can use them for remodeling floors, fences, and decks or adding even more creative decorative elements. Achieve that beach house or cabin feel with the weathered, rustic look of reclaimed wood. However, once refinished, stained, or painted, it gives a more colorful or contemporary look.
For a beautiful, tropical, and environmentally-friendly profile, you can also use bamboo. There are many affordable sources of bamboo rods or sheets. You can use bamboo on interior walls, patio bars, planter beds, lightweight fencing, and more. This will certainly beautify any room or yard.
Ceramic or Porcelain Tiles
To stretch your remodeling budget even further, you can try working with ceramic or porcelain tile. You can use the many styles, colors, and finishes of ceramic tiles in different combinations in the kitchen and bath. Porcelain or ceramic tiles are also easier to maintain compared to expensive and high-maintenance natural stone tiles. A tile countertop will look far better than laminate for about the same cost.
Solid Surface Countertops
Few countertop options can rival the high-end look of solid surfaces. Add to that the fact that it doesn’t come with an expensive price tag either. You can get the same look of real granite at a much lesser cost. Solid surface countertops give investment property owners a wide range of colors and finishes to choose from.
You can also buy used bricks and use them for your rental properties in the same way you would use reclaimed wood. Aside from being more affordable than new brick, used brick also has an attractive weathered look. Painted brick is one popular choice. You can use brick to update accent walls, patios, walkways, and of course, chimneys and fireplace surround.
You can also use stone veneers if you prefer the look of natural stone. Stone veneers are thin sheets of real stone and they come pre-installed on wood or concrete. Stone veneer panels are popularly used for fireplace surrounds, exteriors, and retaining walls. The price may vary depending on the style and size that you choose, but stone veneers can really update your Statesville rental property without the weight and expense.
