While the spring equinox is just around the corner, for many people living in northern states, winter is very much still upon us. If you live in the Northeast or Upper Midwest and are unable to undertake exterior remodels at this time, consider these interior remodels that will make your home feel like new.
Your bedroom is the place you begin every day, and the last place you go when the day is finally over. It's important that this space is one you feel completely comfortable and peaceful in.
Things like clutter and poor lighting can get in the way of this. If you're renovating your bedroom this winter, prioritize storage solutions. Optimize existing space by working storage into the natural design of your room; you'll be surprised how much unused space is hidden under the bed, against the walls and in closets.
Fresh Home says improving lighting is another great way to make your room feel more open and airy. Choose something simple like recessed lighting fixtures to subtly brighten the space, or shift the focus of the room from the bed to a pendant or chandelier.
You can transform your bathroom into a serene, spa-like escape with surprising ease. Minor renovations like adding teak slats to the floor of your shower or putting a fresh coat of white paint on the walls.
If you're in the mood to really change things up, you can replace your current tub with a sleek oval one that's perfect for soaking on cold winter nights. A new sink vanity and mirror with clean lines and fewer frills can simplify your bathroom and make it look and feel more sophisticated and calming.
The kitchen is the heart of the home. It's the place where meals are prepared, and where everyone gathers to share food and stories. Make your gathering place a little more welcoming with renovations like new cabinets or countertops. When shopping around, Dwell says it's important to consider both the aesthetics and the functionality of the doors you choose.
Just because something looks nice doesn't mean it will work for your family's needs. Make sure you only add more storage space or maintain the space you have. A renovated kitchen should never have less storage than you started with. If you're replacing your countertops, keep these same rules in mind. Choose something durable and sturdy that matches the rest of your kitchen and house to ensure the renovations don't make the different rooms of your home feel disjointed.
