Winter is the perfect time for a remodel. No matter where you live, the construction industry is often slower and quieter in winter, making it the ideal time for your to embark on your remodeling, renovations, or even simple home improvement projects. Think about it, you probably aren’t planning a winter vacation and you don’t likely have as many outdoor activities to enjoy which means you can see the project finished more quickly and easily, whether you are DIYing it, having the project completed professionally, or a combination of the two. Perillo Construction offers these ideas for winter remodels and home improvement projects – large or small.
The Kitchen – A Little or a Lot
Now, you might be thinking remodeling the kitchen is a big project and it can be if you want are ready to go for a full-blown renovation. The good news is if a full remodel is in your budget this winter, you might find pricing better than expected or available the rest of the year. If you aren’t looking to do a complete remodel, you might consider new countertops, new flooring, or new cabinets, all of which can give your kitchen the new look you are hoping for with a considerably shorter timeline. If you don’t have the time or budget to tackle a big project like these, consider adding a backsplash or new drawer pulls and knobs to your existing cabinetry – you’ll be surprised at the big impact this little change can make.
Lighting the New Year
If your lighting hasn’t had a recent upgrade, this could be the perfect remodel project for you this winter. Winter’s shorter days mean less sunlight, making indoor lighting even more important! Consider changing your old light fixtures for stylish, bright, new LED versions which are not only beautiful, but environmentally friendly and energy efficient.
Paint Those Walls
Often thought of as a spring/summer project, painting your walls with new colors is a great wintertime remodeling project. Drier winter air means your paint will dry faster too. You’ll get a shorter, effective remodel project to freshen up your home, and when spring arrives, you’ll be ready to enjoy all your favorite outdoor activities, since the painting is all done.
New Flooring This Winter
Whether you have carpeting which needs replacing or you want to add hardwood flooring or tile flooring, winter is the perfect time to make the switch or upgrade. You’ll get the flooring you want, improve your home’s aesthetics, and increase your home’s value when you make the change.
Amp up the Laundry Room
Often left behind when the remodeling begins, winter can be the ideal time to give it the attention it deserves and make your laundry space more functional. Reorganize and refresh your laundry room this winter – clean, add shelving, baskets, hooks, and hangers, and maybe even a new washer/dryer combo. You’ll be thankful to have the new amped up space, which will save you time when the laundry needs to be done.
Attention to Detail – Insulation
Winter is often the time many people think of insulation, which helps keep your house at the ideal temperature inside, when the weather is changing outside. Check your attic and/or crawl space to determine if it is time to reinsulate them this winter. Doing so will not only save you money on utility bills but will keep you comfortable inside all year round.
