7 Home Improvement New Year’s Resolutions You Can Start Right Away

When you can’t start working towards your New Year’s resolutions until the weather improves, motivation often dissipates by the time you intend to get going. No worries though; if your resolutions involve improving your home, you can start right now! No need to wait for a home (and life) you’ve been yearning for; these home improvement projects may be your head start to your accomplishing year.

Entertain with ease

With plenty of family gatherings and warm meals happening in winter, this is the perfect season to recreate your kitchen. Lyons Timber Mart carries a variety of brands to update your kitchen, including KitchenCraft Cabinetry. Whether you desire any style from rustic to contemporary, you can make your cabinets suit both your aesthetic tastes and organizational needs. A simple project, such as a backsplash, can also give you and your kitchen the dash of newness you need. Whether it’s time for a full remodel, or just a small change, come to Timber Mart to get the project started. Soon, you’ll be wowing your friends with your updated kitchen.

Relax more

In winter, there’s nothing like warming up with a luxurious bath. That’s why winter is also the time to make sure you have the right tub. For inspiration, take a look at the Mirolin line of Alcove Baths, with options which look gorgeous and offer comfort, including sloped lumbar support and whirlpool. Maax Radio glass shower doors will also allow you to create that clean, elegant look you’ve been craving in your washroom. A new sink or medicine cabinet, or total bathroom remodel, is also great to get done during the winter, and will allow you to marvel at your bathroom’s new look while you enjoy that bath.

Make life more vivid

Choosing a new colour for a single room can change your whole outlook every time you enter. If you’re trying to embody a new attitude this year—for example, adventurousness or appreciation, perhaps you can choose a colour that best represents your goal to start the day off with a little reminder of who you want to be. Ultra violet, for example, the colour of 2018, according to The Guardian represents spirituality and individuality. As this is quite the vivid colour, you can even simply choose an accent wall to bring a room (and maybe your spirit) to life.

Get walking

While it may be hard to get those steps in outside during the winter, you can make your floors more inviting to walk on by changing your flooring. If stepping lightly is your goal, Fuzion Flooring offers a variety of environmentally-friendly options, including cork flooring. With many options for carpet, vinyl, hardwood, and laminate, Lyons has the quality brands to give you the comfortable and stylish floors you’ve been wanting.

Open New Doors

While it may not be the best time of year to change your exterior doors, new interior doors and trim can revolutionize the look of a room. From French, to Sliding Barn-Style, with panels in a variety of styles, your doors can be as detailed as you crave. Beautiful mouldings, new handles, or hinges can also make you feel new possibilities open with every door’s swing or slide.

Get Organized

For some, a new year means getting organized. Additional shelving, be it in your garage or closet, may make you feel a little more together in 2018. With Timber Mart’s extensive lumber selection, you can create the shelves (or even the full closet) you need to put the clothes and clutter in proper places, or you can purchase the premade units your family requires.

Lighten Up

Winters in Northern Ontario can be dreary, but if you’ve resolved to enjoy yours anyway, new lights will help. Brighten up your home (and your life) by taking a look at the range of lighting available from Eglo and Canarm to see what most excites you. Choose from glorious pendants, chandeliers, ceiling lights, and many more lighting options to make your space reflect your glowing style.
