Embark on exciting home improvement projects this winter that elevate your living space’s comfort, style, and functionality. As the temperature drops and the days shorten, your motivation to create a cozy, inviting atmosphere indoors should rise. Consider these five winter home improvement projects that will make your time indoors more enjoyable this winter while adding value to your home:
1. Brick Fireplace Makeover
Nothing says ‘winter’ like being curled up in front of a brick fireplace. Give your fireplace a facelift by painting the brick and installing a modern timber mantle. Alternatively, cover the brick with stone veneer for a fresh look.
2. Increase Your Insulation
Beat the chill with a well-insulated home. Add insulation to your walls and attic to increase indoor comfort and energy efficiency. Insulating your home can have many benefits, from energy savings to noise reduction. Replacing inefficient windows and exterior doors can also help keep your home warm this winter.
3. Upgrade Your Bathroom
Turn your bathroom or ensuite into a spa-like haven this winter with quick and easy upgrades. Start with a fresh coat of paint and replace outdated fixtures and accessories. If you have lots of natural light, add some greenery with houseplants that will thrive in a high-moisture environment. If you need a full bathroom renovation, reach out to our team for a free consultation.
4. Refresh Your Walls
Simply painting your walls can reinvigorate any room, but we encourage you to take it one step further. Add interest to your walls with panelling or shiplap. Alternatively, add architectural detail with Metrie interior moulding and trim. Add style with new interior doors, or install a sliding barn door to save space.
5. Complete a Budget Kitchen Makeover
Small changes can make a big difference in your kitchen. If you make one kitchen upgrade, refresh your cabinetry. Sand back cupboard doors, paint them a fresh new colour, and replace the door hardware with modern knobs or handles.
