Home Renovations that can be Completed in the Winter

Posted in Roofing tips

Walk down any residential street in the summer months and you’ll see home renovation projects being carried out daily. On the flip side, it seems like people tend to forget about renovation projects in the winter.

In this article, we’ll explore four home renovation jobs that can be completed during the winter months. These projects include updating light fixtures, refreshing rooms by painting and wallpapering, and touching up kitchens and bathrooms.

Light Fixtures

Not only do new fixtures reduce your energy consumption, they also change the look and feel of your home. Light fixtures enhance your home’s decor and allow you to add your own personal touch to your space. You can choose from chandeliers, sconces, wall-mounted fixtures and more to improve the look and function of any room in your home.

Painting & Wallpapering

Winter is the perfect time to get some painting done. Not only is it going to dry faster because of the less humid air, but you’ll save time. To speed up the drying process even more, make sure to ventilate the room that’s being painted.

Most home renovation contractors are busiest throughout the summer. That means if you need painting or wallpapering work done during the winter months, you likely won’t need to wait as long as you normally would.

Kitchen Touch-Ups

In the winter months, it’s not uncommon for your kitchen to feel a little unwelcoming. This is normally because of dreary, cold weather combined with a large open space, however, that doesn’t mean you can’t spend the winter months giving your kitchen a touch-up.

You don’t have to undertake a complete kitchen remodel. Even a few minor tweaks can make a world of difference. So what can you do to upgrade your kitchen?

Try incorporating your own personal touch – after all, you want your kitchen to reflect your style. You can do this by adding a backsplash or installing a new floor or countertop. Upgrading appliances can also make an enormous difference to the feel of your kitchen, especially if they are a little outdated.

Bathroom Touch-Ups

If there’s one place you don’t want to be in the winter, it’s the bathroom! They tend to be cold and uninviting, however, there are a few things you can do to change that. 

To start your bathroom renovation, begin by looking at the flooring. Are there any rugs present? If not, add one to provide some warmth.

If you want to warm things up even further, you could consider adding heated flooring. Most bathroom flooring tends to be cold in the winter, which makes the whole room seem cold. Heated flooring is an investment in your home that can make a world of difference when it comes to your family’s comfort and enjoyment.

Upgrading your sink, shower or bath fixtures can add an instant update to your bathroom in a short period of time. Changing your vanity or countertop can also instantly improve the look of the room and take it from stale to new and modern.

Don’t forget to add a towel warmer to your bathroom. This simple project will be a welcome indulgence during the cold winter months.
