While many are taking advantage of recently opened borders to get out of town and visit the rest of our amazing region, some of us are still home and working on improving our space. While the obvious ideas are out there, kitchens and bathrooms, here are some ideas to help improve your home!
Depending on the age of your home, your windows may not be as energy efficient as they could be. Now is a great time to have the windows in your home replaced with newer, more energy efficient models, many of which are manufactured here in Atlantic Canada! Beautiful new windows with environmentally friendly features can be just the change you’re looking for!
The outside of your home can say a lot about you and your family. If your home has had the same exterior coat of paint since you moved in, now might be the perfect time to update that colour! If you’re ok with the colour, it might even be time to just do a touch up to make your home look fresh. While you’re looking at the outside, your home’s outdoor areas obviously face the elements, so they may be in need of a touchup as well.
Do you and your family love cooking and the outdoors? Move your love of food outdoors by partnering with a local contractor and build yourself an outdoor kitchen! A built-in grill, fireplace, and fridge can help you and your family build amazing memories in the backyard!
Up your backyard game even more by adding a pergola or gazebo. These can extend your outdoor space, making for gorgeous spots to either sit and relax, or can be used along a pathway to another part of your backyard.
One of the most overlooked spaces in our homes are the stairs. Take some time to look and see what your stairs look like. Carpeted stairs could be changed to remove the carpet and allow the bare wood to show. An exposed wood set could have a patterned wallpaper added to give a pop of colour or intrigue.
