Enduring the long, cold winter months in Minnesota can take its toll on getting things done around the house. However, there are a few remodeling projects that we recommend beginning now so that they are completed before the busy summer season commences! Keep reading below for our top 5 home remodeling projects that you can start right now!
1. New Flooring
Pulling up old flooring and replacing with new carpet, luxury vinyl flooring, or tile is a perfect project for winter. Plus, you can determine what kind of flooring can handle the traffic and harsh elements winter brings – mud, salt, and water can make a mess! We always suggest selecting a flooring that is water-proof, scratch proof, and easy to clean.
Replacing your flooring is great project to tackle in the winter because it typically doesn’t take long and you have the option to work room by room if you’d like. If you have hardwood floors, there is no need to replace them. Snow and water, in particular, gets absorbed by hardwood and can cause lasting damage so refinishing your hardwood floors during the winter is necessary so they have proper protection.
2. Bathroom Remodel
Upgrading your current fixtures, vanity, and shower/bathtub makes the perfect home remodeling project for winter because everything can be completed indoors! Updating your bathroom with a steam feature in the shower or high end finishes is a great way to upgrade this space.
3. Kitchen Remodel
We have all thought about what our ultimate kitchen would look like and now is the time to make that dream a reality! Similarly to bathroom projects, remodeling your kitchen during the winter months will be less of a disturbance to your family compared to busy summer months.
Use an upcoming holiday or get-together as an incentive to bring your dream kitchen to life. Picture preparing fabulous meals on your new countertops or island, and cooking these dishes in your new modern oven. Design your space so that it complements your lifestyle while at the same time offers your friends and family a better gathering spot.
4. Basement Remodel
Another indoor remodeling project that is perfect to start during the cold winter months is finishing your basement. Basements are often overlooked and can be transformed into an insulated, functional living space in no time. Even if you decide that it is not the time to do a full remodel, added insulation and sheetrock will help protect your home from the cold temps and keep your home warmer. Whether it be a rec room or a home gym, a basement remodel adds value to your home and increases valuable living space for you and your family to enjoy.
5. Interior Painting
Thinking of changing up colors in your home? Perhaps you are redesigning your home and are in need of a fresh start. Whatever your situation may be, when you’re stuck inside, winter is the perfect time to tackle that painting project you’ve been meaning to do. Whether you’re going for a whole new color scheme throughout your home or just touching up existing paint, a fresh coat will give your home a much needed boost.
