Some of the busiest months of the year are approaching, as is the colder weather. Like many people, you may be hosting the upcoming holidays and want your home to be in tip-top shape. Or, perhaps you’re looking for a project to keep your mind off the holiday season – either way, there is lots for you to do! While outdoor improvements are becoming out of the question, there is still plenty to work be done on inside your home. Here are three fairly easy and popular projects you can tackle this winter:
1. Paint the Walls
Since you’ll be spending a lot more time inside during the winter, you should at least be looking at a color you like. Carve out a weekend to spruce up a room in your home with a new paint color. Or, maybe just touch-up an existing color. If the smell of paint is too strong for you and it’s too cold to open up some windows to air out the room, you can use a water-based, non-toxic paint.
2. Update Your Insulation
This project is more about functionality than aesthetics. A poorly insulated home can be a nightmare in the cold winter months, as you can never seem to get warm and your utility bills never seem to end. Keep your home cozy by updating the insulation in your attic and walls and adding weatherstripping to any gaps around windows and doors. Plus, with the money saved on your heating bill, you can start tackling the other projects on your winter to-do list! Win-win!
3. Renovate a Room
Is there a room in your home that you’ve been dying to renovate? Has your family been begging to have the basement finally finished? Remodeling a bathroom or finishing your basement is the perfect winter project, especially if you’re expecting a large number of guests throughout the holiday season. Or, if you’re not the one doing the hosting or cooking, you could even consider renovating your kitchen. A home remodeling project can be as simple as adding a new vanity and fixtures to a bathroom, or as extensive as updating everything in the room. The choice is completely up to you!
Not only will all of these projects help spruce up your home, but they’re also a good opportunity to spend time with loved ones. Working together on a home remodeling project can become some of your favorite memories later down the road. You could even paint a wall or renovate a room as a gift to someone in your family for the holidays.
While many of these home improvements can be DIY projects, others may require you to turn to a team of professionals. For example, if you find yourself wanting to complete a bathroom remodel, then you should reach out to an experienced company like Tundraland. We offer a range of remodeling services, like bath and shower replacements and tub-to-shower conversions, and would be happy to help you transform a bathroom in your home. In the meantime, enjoy the last few days of warmer weather and extra daylight. After the winter months, be sure to check back in to take a look at our spring and summer checklists.
