Winter is a great time to complete both large and small home renovation projects. Whether it’s finishing your basement, upgrading a bathroom, or checking off a handful of smaller projects, we think a New England winter is ideal for getting work done on your home.
While you may not be ready to take on a major renovation project, there are a number of smaller upgrades you can make over the winter.
Kitchen Countertops and Backsplash
A quick, easy, and affordable way to upgrade your kitchen without going through a full renovation can be completed by adding a new backsplash and kitchen countertops. Whether you’re seeking an ultra-modern design or a contemporary and classic look, countertops and backsplash are the perfect choice for an upgrade.
Kitchen Cabinet Doors and Handles
What do you do if you like the layout and functionality of your kitchen but don’t want to splurge for brand-new cabinets? Refacing cabinets and adding modern hardware is an option to freshen up your kitchen and can be easily completed over the course of a few days.
Recessed lighting in a kitchen, a new vanity fixture in your bathroom, or a showpiece chandelier in a dining or living room are all upgrades which can be completed during the winter months. While you’re at it, you can also add ceiling fans to enjoy during the hot summer months.
The easiest, fastest, and most affordable way to upgrade a room is a fresh coat a paint. A lighter shade will go a long way in brightening up a room without moving walls, adding windows, or changing the footprint of your home.
Like a new coat of paint, updating a room’s floor is a great way to give a fresh look without any major renovations. Whether is removing a dated carpet or refinishing a beat-up hardwood this is a perfect winter project.
Dated shower and sink handles can easily be swapped out for modern, sleek finishes to match the look in other parts of your home.
If you don’t have a smart thermostat you can control over Wi-Fi using your phone, winter is the perfect time to install one. In the long-term the cost of purchasing one will be paid back in savings through energy conservation. Additionally, you can install built-in speakers and a video doorbell and home monitoring system all accessible with the touch of a button.
