When we’re all stuck inside during an incredibly cold winter (like now!), it’s easy to look around our homes and look for ways to improve it. From the smallest to the largest home projects, we’ve listed the projects that can make the biggest impact on your life—without the large price tag!
Crown molding adds a custom look to any room. The “custom” part of the dÃ©cor depends on your preference. Crown moldings come in a variety of styles that can be chosen to fit with any home dÃ©cor. For an even more upscale look, add crown molding to a wall, such as in a dining room or foyer. Crown molding can also be stained or painted to fit with existing home dÃ©cor.
A bathroom or kitchen update doesn’t have to be a full remodel or come with an extravagant price tag. Changes to key areas in bathrooms or kitchens can make a big impact to the look of the room. These changes, such as painting cabinets, replacing countertops, or adding a backsplash can make a bathroom or kitchen look like new. When interviewing contractors, choose a contractor that keeps the space clean while updating the room.
Shelves and efficiently organized storage spaces can be invaluable during the winter and the summer. Winter can be an ideal time to add shelves in a basement, convert a laundry closet into a pantry, or add cabinets to an office or mud room.
A finished basement adds space to any home and gives homeowners options. Take advantage of the cold winter days to make small changes to the basement that can make a huge impact, such as adding a bar, workshop shelving, or workout space. Draft out the idea and don’t be afraid to ask a contractor for ideas; they can give you suggestions that make your basement a place you want to head to on those cold winter days.
