Winter might not be an obvious time of year for renovations, but the end of the year is on the horizon, and you have a million things to do, but renovation projects don’t have to be expensive and time-consuming; they can be cheap, cheerful, and transform your home for Christmas.
The winter tends to be cold and inhospitable in most places, so a garage upgrade might not seem like the best idea during this season; why not wait until spring and summer when it’s dry and warm? Still, a winter garage upgrade is possible, and it can save you time and money.
One of the advantages of upgrading your garage in the winter is that you don’t have any upheaval in your home while the festive season is in full swing; for this reason, you can tick the renovation off the list without any inconvenience. Also, you can protect the garage for winter.
As with the garage, the closets in your home make the perfect winter upgrade project. Whether it is large or small, a closet is a magnet for clutter; it’s also an out-of-the-way space which makes it the ideal renovation when the rest of the house feels festive. There’s lots you can do.
If you have a larger closet, why not renovate it and turn it into a home office? Alternatively, you could clear it out and put all of the unused belongings into a self storage facility for the winter; this gives you time to renovate the closet and keeps the belongings safe and dry through winter.
Winter is not just the perfect time for small home upgrades; it’s the ideal time. During the winter months, you will be busy working and planning for the end of the year; there are a million things to do and not enough hours in the day, that’s why smaller upgrades are the ideal renovations.
Small upgrades include things like moving the furniture around, changing the light fixtures, and making some cosmetic changes that brighten the place up and give it a new feel. When you make your small changes keep the end-of-year spirit in mind and enjoy a cozy winter home.
Accent painting is one of the best low-maintenance renovations you can have for your home. Forget about clearing out your furniture for a painter and decorator to come in or investing in a home makeover for the festive season; all you need is a pot of colourful paint and some time.
In a single afternoon, you can transform your home completely; all you have to do is paint a single wall with an inspiring color and enjoy a new atmosphere in your home for the winter. Choosing an accent wall is also an excellent way to change the feel of your home every year.
Don’t forget about cozy space in your home for the winter. Every home needs a book nook to settle down in for the evening with a classic winter story and a steaming mug of hot chocolate. The cozier, the better in the winter, so think about how to renovate your spaces for the season.
