Winter may have you spending more time in your home, but that doesn’t mean your home improvements have to stay dormant. There are still plenty of things you can do inside your home to improve its appearance, keep you busy, and most importantly, beat those winter doldrums. Best of all, you don’t have to spend a fortune in the process.
Here’s a quick list:
Rearrange furniture. One of the most affordable and easiest ways to give your home a new look is to rearrange the furniture. You can rearrange furniture in a single room or shuffle pieces from other rooms in your house. You’ll be surprised at how moving a few pieces of furniture can change the entire feel of a room.
Awaken tired walls. Nothing makes a room look newer than a fresh coat of paint. Painting a room in a brighter color is a great way to brighten up the dark days of winter. Also, consider painting your trim around doorways to freshen the look of your house.
Re-fixture your cabinets. Tired of looking at the same-old kitchen cabinets? Give them a fresh look by changing the handles and fixtures. The right fixtures can make all the difference and will save you the high cost of having to replace your cabinets.
Re-grout tile. Do you have tile in your bathroom or kitchen that looks old and worn? Over time, grout between your tiles can get dirty. For a fresh new look, re-grout your tile with a new color. It’s time consuming work, but inexpensive.
Another way to give your bathroom a refresh is to replace worn faucets and fixtures.
Clean your garage. Looking to get more space in your garage? Winter is a great time to get organized, and give yourself more space to work or store items.
Light up your home. See your home in a different light. Literally. Consider purchasing new lamps and lighting fixtures to give your home a brighter, new appearance.
These simple projects are great ways to spruce up your home. After all, if you’re going to spend your winter indoors, you may as well be surrounded by beautiful scenery.
