How to Pull off a Budget Investment Property Reno like a Pro

Home renovations are just as common here in Perth as they are across Australia. While there are homeowners who renovate their own home, there are also homeowners who renovate their investment properties.

Whether you need to renovate your property to perform much-needed maintenance or you are renovating for profit, renovating a rental property can improve the properties value, yield better rental rates and attract more (and better) tenants.

If you’re worried that the cost of the renovations to your investment property will be more than you can afford – or more than it would be wise to invest in – you may be mistaken. You can forgo undertaking a full-scale renovation and rather, choose to renovate only certain aspects of your property – aspects that will return an investment.

Today, we’ll take a look at how you can pull off a budget renovation on an investment property. By following this guide, you won’t need to spend any more than you have to and you’ll get the best returns on your investment.

Upgrade your vanity

One of the simplest ways to give the bathroom of an investment property a completely new look on a budget is by upgrading the vanity. Vanities are designed to be the focal point of your bathroom, and they also serve a very practical purpose. Upgrading your vanity will breathe new life into even the dullest of bathrooms.

For stylish and trendy vanities in Perth that won’t cost you a fortune, consider our collection here at Ross’s Discount Home Centre. Our Belford Vanity Unit and Charli Semi-Recessed Solid Doors Vanity are excellent choices for budget renovations.

Get new cabinetry

Updating your cabinetry is perhaps the easiest ways to transform the look and feel of your kitchen. While cabinetry will make your space more functional, it can also help define the overall visual appeal of your space. And a new kitchen needn’t cost you tens of thousands. At Ross’s we can supply a complete kitchen with appliances for as little as $8,000!

While kitchen cabinets are available in a range of styles and designs, white 2-pack cabinets are a great choice. This is because they offer a sleek and modern look and complement a full range of colour schemes, and they never date.

Update the flooring

Updating the flooring is a sure-fire way of making any space of an investment property look fresh and new. While laminate flooring is an affordable option, it is not very durable. This is why tiles are a great choice.

Tiles are durable and affordable. And contrary to popular belief, tiling won’t blow your renovation budget out of the water. If you choose your tiles carefully, you can easily pull off a budget renovation that looks a million bucks.

To purchase high-quality tiles at discount prices in Perth, visit Ross’s Discount Home Centre, where you’ll find a huge selection to choose from. We offer Perth’s largest selection of wall tiles, floor tiles, feature tiles, and mosaic tiles.

For your investment property, consider the Timber Look Grigio and the Timber Look Maroon floor tiles. These tiles mimic the look and feel of natural wood while offering all the benefits of tiles. And best of all, they start from as low as $55 per square metre, so you don’t have to worry about blowing your renovation budget.

Replace your fixtures

Replacing fixtures

Finally, replacing old and weary fixtures can help add both functionality and style to your investment property. By updating fixtures such as toilet suites, tapware, and shower heads, you can make your bathroom or kitchen much more functional without having to spend too much money.

At Ross’s Discount Home Centre, you’ll find a full range of high-quality stylish tapware, toilet suites, and other fittings and accessories. Take a look at our new range of satin black tapware. Satin black is a colour that is trending currently, and it will help you to create a fashionable and up to date look instantly.


To pull off your very own budget renovation, you should consider upgrading only certain aspects of your investment property that will help increase its value and appeal. Upgrading the bathroom vanity and cabinetry, redoing the flooring and replacing old fixtures can boost a property’s value without putting in too much of an investment.
