5 Home Renovation Projects You Can Do in the Winter
When it comes to renovating your home, winter isn’t always the best time of year to undertake big renovation projects. However, there are certain reno projects that can be done in the winter. In fact, doing some renovation projects in the winter may save you money.
Because basements are below ground and out of the cold wintery weather, they’re the perfect renovation project to take on during the winter. While we don’t recommend digging a foundation (you’ll want to have a basement already!), updating the decor or finishing an unfinished basement is a great use of time in the winter. And if you’re updating your basement, don’t forget to make sure you have a working, energy efficient furnace that’s up to date as well.
If you have a furnace and you don’t rely on your fireplace for warmth, this is another renovation project you can do in the winter. It’s best to do it at the beginning of the winter so you have plenty of time to enjoy your new fireplace! Or, you can do some minor aesthetic upgrades like installing a new mantle or updating the fireplace surround for a fresh, new look.
Winter is a great time for having a kitchen renovated for a number of reasons. First, you can plan a vacation while the work is done. Or if you aren’t heading off on vacation, at least the kids will be in school and cause less potential disruptions to getting this project finished. You’ll want to make sure you have a contingency plan for eating, doing dishes and other daily activities while the renovations are being done.
Powder Bathroom Renovations
Powder rooms are having their time in the limelight, with more and more homeowners opting to create a luxury bathroom on the main floor that guests can use. It’s a great way to make an impression on visitors to your home, and you and your family likely use it too, so why not invest in a great looking upgrade? You can even go the DIY route and simply upgrade the faucets, paint and regrout the tile.
If you’re unsure about embarking on a full-scale renovation during the winter, there are lots of little things you can do around the house to give your home a facelift. Consider giving a room or two a fresh coat of paint or wallpaper, or switch up the lighting in your living areas to make them feel warm and cozy.
