Home Improvement Projects to Tackle this WinterChad Madill - The Clean Boot - Wednesday, 10 October 2019
Many homeowners believe that home improvement projects can be best handled during spring and summer. But the fact is, there are many home renovations and upgrades you could easily tackle in the winter season. The purpose of this post is to highlight some of the most productive home improvement projects that one should put on their to-do list this winter.
Manage your Roofs and Gutters
Even if you’ve had snow, there are certain steps that you can take to prevent blocked gutters and ice clogs. Try to install professionally-designed gutter guards so that you don’t have to worry about snow, stones, dust or leaves jamming your gutters.
While we generally associate house painting with the summer months because we can leave the doors and windows open, winter is certainly one of the best times to do interior painting. Thus, if your walls are starting to look faded, you can fix them up with a fresh and flashy coat of paint.
Spruce Up Your Wardrobe
If one of your new-year resolutions was to become more organized, winter is the right time to get started. It’s a lot easier to work on everyday tasks especially when the outside weather is really terrible.
If your wardrobe is a mess, now is the time to get rid of the cobwebs. Try to go through everything in your wardrobe and decide what you really need. Once you have decluttered and rearranged, it’s much easier to know what you have and what you need.
Insulate Your Home
If you’re really looking to saving money on your electricity bills, you should add insulation to your attic, ceilings and ducts this winter. Make sure to have your insulation professionally installed to avoid air quality problems.
Renovate Your Bathroom
There’s no better time to renovate your bathroom than the winter season. Not only can you re-grout tiles, paint or renew your faucets, but you can also add the newest and latest styles of vanities.
Upgrade Your Kitchen
You don’t have to do a complete renovation to add a little something extra to your kitchen. In fact, you can change the entire look of your kitchen by just adding a new backsplash.
While this DIY project may cost you some money, it’s a simple project that won’t take more than a week and will add value and new appeal. In addition, you can also swap out your kitchen hardware to give a fresh and appealing look. With hundreds of cabinet and door knob options available these days you can select something to add both depth and dimension to your current kitchen design.
Install a Smart Thermostat
One of the best ways to save energy in your home during winter is to invest in a programmable smart thermostat. With a smart thermostat, you can easily control the temperature settings in your home throughout the day. This is particularly important during winter as you don’t have to spend money to warm your home while you’re away.
Revamp Your Flooring
Old, shabby flooring can literally ruin the look of your home’s interior. Whether you select to swap out your existing carpet or install another flooring type, you’ll give your home a fresh and clean appearance.
