Here’s how the percentages break down for each room: Kitchen: 10% to 15% of house’s value Kitchen renovation budget for a: 0,000 house: ,000 to ,000 0,000 house: ,000 to ,000 0,000 house: ,000 to 2,500 Master Bathroom Suite: 10% of house’s value Master bathroom suite renovation budget for a: 0,000 house: ,000 0,000 house: ,000 0,000 house: ,000 Powder Room/Bathroom: 5% of house’s value Powder room/bathroom renovation budget for a: 0,000 house: ,000 0,000 house: ,000 0,000 house: ,500 Finished Attic or Basement: 10% to 15% of house’s value Attic or basement finishing budget for a: 0,000 house: ,000 to ,000 0,000 house: ,000 to ,000 0,000 house: ,000 to 2,500 Other Rooms: 1% to 3% of house’s value Living room, dining room, or bedroom renovation budget for a: 0,000 house: ,000 to ,000 0,000 house: ,000 to ,000 0,000 house: ,500 to ,500 Patio, Deck, Paths, and Plantings: 2% to 5% of house’s value 0,000 house: ,000 to ,000 0,000 house: ,000 to ,000 0,000 house: ,000 to ,500 Got a question for Josh?

Opt for frosted glass, if you feel like your shelves aren't display-worthy. "If I'm painting a room light gray, I'd add an accent wall that's two shades deeper."5. If you're irked by your kitchen's decades-old light fixture, replace it with a colorful pedant.

Or, ditch the doors altogether to create the effect of open shelving. Since lighting is so important in any room, this one change can totally transform the entire space.
