In the warmer months it can feel more approachable to do larger remodeling projects, but doing some things in the winter can be just as feasible, and sometimes more cost effective, depending on the project. As outdoor projects are put on hold, indoor projects can take the forefront during a time that tends to be a bit slower for contractors. Here’s a list to help you get started: 

  1. Give walls and/or trim a fresh coat of paint. 

  2. Bring your hardwood floors back to life with by sanding them down and adding a fresh coat of poly finish, or stain of your choosing.

  3. Add crown molding – It can add character and brighten up almost any sized room.

  4. Insulate your attic or crawl space – Consider an energy assessment first to be sure you’re doing the right prep for those seams and cracks that may need attention around pipes, cords, or venting. Check out our article on pg. 1 for more info!

  5. Change out cabinet, bathroom, or door hardware – adding a fresh look.

  6. Spruce up your pantry by making sure you’re taking advantage of all necessary storage space. Adding hooks or bins can help make the best use of your space.

  7. Replace countertop and/or flooring in your kitchen.

  8. Install a new Bathroom vanity.

  9. Declutter – something often overlooked as far as home improvement projects, but no less important if you’d like to enliven space and encourage calm in your home.
