If you’re interested in remodeling a room in your home, or if you’ve already decided to take the plunge, a home improvements catalogue should be your new best friend. A good catalogue (or even a few of them, as I suggest you pick up more than one) can help you in more ways that you could possibly imagine. First and foremost, you can use them to steal ideas and make your own. Usually, there are models of every room you could possibly improve in a home improvements catalogue. If you scan through enough of them, you’ll almost certainly find ideas that you will take and implement in your own home. Fortunately, there’s no such thing as plagiarism when it comes to making improvements to your home.
In addition to giving you ideas for your projects, a home improvements catalogue can help you to price out many of the things you’ll need along the way. This can help you to define a budget, which will be your guideline for how much money to take out of the bank (or to get a loan for). Once you have a basic budget set out, you can start pricing things more definitively. I suggest finding brand names or styles that you like, then calling home improvement warehouses to see what their prices are on the items you want. In many cases, they’ll be cheaper. Plus, you’ll avoid expensive shipping and handling costs that many catalogues charge.
When all else fails, if you still have no use for your home improvements catalogue, I have a few suggestions. First, you can use them to steady a wobbly chair or table leg. At least then, you’ll still be improving your home with your catalogue! If all of your furniture is stable, you can rip up the pages and use them as bird cage liner or extra long wicks to light the pilot light of your stove.
