At first glance, winter doesn’t seem like a great time to undertake home renovations. Snow on the ground and cold weather seem like they would be the bane of contractors everywhere. But depending on what you want to have done, wintertime might be the best time.
Countertops: Changing out countertops can immediately change the look of your kitchen. And given that it doesn’t take a lot of back and forth trips outside, it can easily be done during the colder months.
Kitchen Backsplash: Since you just replaced your countertops, you’re likely in need of a new backsplash to match! Another great example of using time wisely! A kitchen backsplash has no need for any outside work, and can be done fairly quickly!
Light Fixtures: Light fixtures are something that often get forgotten about, but a new fixture that both functions as a better source of light, and also allows more light to flow through your home, can make a world of difference, especially during the darker winter months.
Walls: Painting and wallpapering are great projects to take on during the winter. Once all of your materials are gathered, there is no need to go outside! And using a bright pattern or colour can allow you to brighten up the indoors, which can help on dreary days.
Carpets: Do you have carpet in your home? The winter can be a great time to get rid of it, or even replace it. A fresh floor, either bare or carpeted, can help your home feel more comfortable and cozy until spring hits.
