Top 4 Winter Home Improvement Projects
It’s a common misconception that home improvement can only be done when it’s bright and sunny and warm outside. Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t make your home more comfortable or boost your home value. In fact, it’s often during winter that many home improvement issues come to light. Here are some of the top home improvement projects you can take on in winter.
There’s nothing like cold weather to make you realize your home could use more insulation. It could be that you’re suffering from drafts as cold air seeps into your home, or it could be the discomfort of those high heating bills. New or added insulation can make your home more comfortable while your heating bills stay low. At Jancewicz & Son, we use spray foam insulation, which expands to fit even the tightest nooks and crannies in order to fully insulate your home.
While you might not spend much time outside during the winter, it’s actually the perfect time for deck installation. The dry ground is easier to break, so the foundation can be laid. Because of the cold weather, your contractor may be less busy and thus you’ll have more freedom when it comes to scheduling. Plus, you’ll have your deck all finished and ready by spring so you can enjoy it with your friends and family!
New Cabinets and Carpentry
Since you’re spending more time indoors, it’s a great time to have some interior home improvement done. Need more storage space, or hand-crafted pieces that make the interior of your home really stand out? Consider having some custom carpentry done. It could be anything from a new cabinet or bookshelf to a new table or chairs for more entertainment function or even a new bathroom vanity.
This one requires no help from a home improvement contractor, but it can have remarkable results. As you become more acquainted with your indoor space, you may find yourself inundated with clutter that was collected over the years. Take some time to clean house, and maybe even use the Konmari method: with each item, consider whether it “sparks joy.” If not, toss it or give it away. You’ll feel much more refreshed with a decluttered home.
