Refinishing hardwood floors can make a big difference in the appearance of your home. We recently got prices for this and it was a big surprise since we always assumed it would cost a lot for this job. We got prices from 2 different contractors and one did give a high price. However, the other one gave a price of less than $1,800 to refinish 3 bedrooms, hall and living room! Considering that it costs that much to replace carpet in all these rooms, this is a good price.
A new counter top in the kitchen can make a big difference. We replaced a countertop in a rental property and spent around $350, including labor for the contractor to pick it up and install it. The new faucet and sink are not included in this price but that was about $200 more. Some of the older homes have the cheap interior doors that are coming apart. These can be replaced for about $80 per door, plus labor for having them installed and painted.
