As the days become colder and shorter, you know winter is on its way. If you’ve been thinking of tackling some home improvement projects but are thinking of putting them off till spring, think again. Winter is actually a great time to perform home improvement projects for your South End home, especially ones that seem to get overlooked during the busyness of the summer.
Here are some winter home improvement projects you should consider hiring a Boston contractor for this season.
1. Replace Flooring
If it’s been a long time since you replaced the floors – if ever – now is the time to do it. Whether you want to replace your flooring as part of a bigger remodeling project (i.e., kitchen expansion, loft conversion), you can confidently book this type of project now because it’s done largely indoors. No chance of weather derailing your plans!
2. Refresh Interior Lighting
Now that there is less daylight available, take this opportunity to evaluate your home’s lighting system. Is it sufficient for your needs? It’s wise to replace incandescent light bulbs with energy-efficient LED bulbs to lower your utility bills and boost the value of your home.
3. Repurpose the Garage
If your garage doesn’t get much use beyond acting as a catch-all for overflow stuff, you may consider converting your garage into a man cave, craft room, game room, or in law apartment. You may even want to add a loft for an extra bedroom or two.
4. Paint Interior Rooms
You won’t believe the magic a fresh coat of paint can do for your interiors. Winter is the off season for painters and contractors, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding and booking these professionals right now.
5. Replace Windows and Doors
If you’re looking for a great way to boost your home’s resale value, efficiency, comfort and curb appeal, consider a window and door replacement. If you’re already hiring a contractor for a new addition, such as a sunroom that requires lots of windows, this is the ideal time to consider which of your other aging windows throughout the house should be switched out too.
6. Kitchen and Bath Renovations
These interior projects are ideal for winter. Whether you want to gut your entire kitchen or just switch out some key elements such as countertops and flooring, an experienced South End contractor can easily tackle this project in the cold months. Same goes for bathrooms. These two projects can give you the highest ROI.
7. Basement Finishing
Now’s the time to finish that basement so your kids can gather down there instead of playing their video games in your living room! With limited options of outdoor recreation each day, having a warm, comfortable basement for your kids and guests to retreat to can be a lifesaver.
