As Canadians, we spend a lot more time inside during the winter to avoid the cold. Being cooped up in the house for the season can often lead us to realize what we don’t like about our house and how we’d like to change it. While most people wait until spring and summer to complete their home renovations, winter is actually the perfect time. There’s more time to enjoy your renovation and less demand for contractors. If you’re thinking about investing in a home renovation this winter, here are a few of our favourite ideas for what you might like to do.
Replace Kitchen Countertops
Winter is a time where many of us are in the kitchen baking, cooking, and hosting. One of our favourite winter home renovation ideas and a great way to make your kitchen feel more luxurious is to replace your countertops with something higher-quality and more stylish. The experts at Vista Renos are happy to help make your dream kitchen a reality by fitting your kitchen with beautiful stone countertops this winter!
Finish The Basement
Since you’re in your home throughout the winter anyway, why not make the most of the space by finally finishing your basement? Your family will be so happy to have another floor of your home opened up for an array of purposes. Open up your own home theatre, a playroom, a rec room, or even a classic man-cave and enjoy all the possibilities of a newly renovated basement!
Modernize Your Lighting
Just like furniture or paint colours, lighting goes in and out of style. If your home’s lighting is feeling a little passe, we recommend taking the time this winter to update your light fixtures to something a bit more modern. Great lighting will open up your space, make it feel fresher, warmer, and brighter, and will help you make a new interior design fashion statement without having to buy a whole new couch!
Upgrade Your Windows
A wonderful but sometimes overlooked winter home renovation idea is to upgrade your windows! Upgrading your windows to more modern and weather-friendly frames is a great way to let more natural light into your home while conserving energy throughout the winter. By upgrading your windows, you’re bringing natural sunlight into your home during the coldest winter days, and allowing less energy to escape your home, saving you money. Save money and energy while keeping your home stylish this winter by replacing your windows with something modern and weatherized.
