Winter Home

Snowed In? Time to Upgrade! Best Home Improvement Project for Winter Days

As we settle into winter, we find ourselves spending more time indoors at home. So why not make the most of it and tackle the home improvement jobs on your to-do list? Now is the time to focus, plan and capitalize on this time of year to make major headway that will make the spring season (and beyond) more enjoyable in your improved home. 

Need some inspiration to tackle your winter home-improvement list? Here are 5 home improvement projects you can easily do this winter…

  1. Repaint Your Rooms to Reflect a New Mood

Winter is the perfect time to give your home a fresh new look. Repainting your rooms can completely transform the mood and atmosphere of your living space. Whether you want to create a cozy and warm feel with earthy tones or add a pop of color to brighten up your space, this simple home renovation project can make a huge difference. Plus, it’s a fun and creative way to spend those cold winter days indoors. 

  1. Upgrade Your Kitchen Cabinets for a Refreshing Look

Looking to give your kitchen a fresh new look? Upgrading your kitchen cabinets can be a game-changer. With a simple home renovation like this, you can transform the entire feel of your kitchen. Choose sleek, modern cabinets for a contemporary look, or go for classic, timeless designs for a more traditional feel. Here are a couple options for updating your cabinets:

  • Cabinet refacing. You can transform your cabinets quickly by refacing them with a new veneer. You can choose any color veneer you like, but cabinet refacing is a step above painting. It replaces cabinet surfaces instead of just covering them with paint. It usually includes new hinges and hardware, too, so your old cabinets get a total makeover.
  • Swap out the hardware. Changing the cabinet knobs and drawer pulls is a fast, easy and dramatic update. Make sure to pick new hardware that will fit in the holes drilled for your old hardware.
  • Paint the cabinets. Some argue white cabinets are a thing of the past… so bring your kitchen up-to-date by painting the cabinets and bold color. Navy, sage, charcoal, greige or classic blue are trending colors for cabinets. 
  • Swap wood doors for some glass front doors. Change out solid wood cabinet doors for glass-front doors. Paint them to match the rest of your cabinets and it will transform the look of your kitchen. You could also add some floating shelves in place of some of the cabinets. 
  1. Upgrade Your Lighting For a Warmer Feel

Are your light fixtures looking outdated? Or do you want to make the space feel more light and warm? Think about replacing fixtures that are in the main living areas, kitchen, and entry-ways. You could also easily update bathroom lighting as well, depending on how much or little you want to do. Consider updating your lightbulbs to achieve a warmer mood lighting and installing a light control app. 

  1. Insulate Your Home to Save on Energy Costs

Insulating your home during the winter is not only a smart investment but also a great way to save on energy costs. By properly insulating your walls, windows, and doors, you can prevent heat from escaping and cold air from entering your home. This means your heating system won’t have to work as hard to maintain a comfortable temperature, resulting in lower energy bills. Additionally, a well-insulated home creates a more comfortable living environment by eliminating drafts and cold spots. 

  1. Create a Dedicated Workspace

As we continue to adapt to remote work and online learning, creating a dedicated workspace at home has become more important than ever. Take advantage of the winter months to set up a comfortable and productive area where you can focus and get work done. Find a quiet corner or room in your home, away from distractions, and invest in a good desk, chair, and lighting. Personalize your space with plants, artwork, or motivational quotes to make it inspiring and inviting. Having a dedicated workspace will help you stay organized, boost your productivity, and separate your work life from your personal life. 

The business of home improvements is ongoing– a year-round job–but the winter season can be a great time to catch up and knock some of those projects off your list. Be sure to secure your materials ahead of time, shop around for the best deals on all of your products, and most importantly, have fun!
