Cold weather may not make the most ideal conditions for a large home renovation, but there are ways to take advantage of all the time indoors with simple updates that can increase your home’s value. Here are a few home projects perfect for the winter months.
Replace kitchen countertops
New countertops can make a big difference in the overall look and feel of your kitchen. Plus, once you have the materials, this task doesn’t require too many trips outside the house, so it’s a great upgrade to consider during the colder months.
Add new light fixtures
Replacing light fixtures is a simply way to add updated, modern touches to a room without needing to spend a great deal of money or time.
Paint a room
Paint dries faster in the dry winter air, making this task a bit easier to do when it’s cold outside. Fresh paint is also one of the best ways to quickly increase your home’s value. If you’re thinking of selling in the near future, neutral walls offer a fresh, clean look for potential buyers.
Install a new faucet
Small changes can have a big impact, especially in a small space like a bathroom. If you want to spruce up your bathroom, but aren’t ready to commit to a total renovation, try replacing the faucet for a new look.
Update safety features
This isn’t exactly the most glamorous house project, but the new year is the perfect time to replace the batteries in your smoke detectors and test your carbon monoxide detectors. Make this a winter habit and mark you calendar for another check in the summer.
Refurbish a door
With some new hardware and a fresh coat of paint, sprucing up a door is another great way to transform a space. Upgrade your door knobs or repaint your front door for an eye-catching change.
