Home Renovations During The Winter Season

Feb 02 , 2015

Being stuck inside all winter can lead a homeowner to find and budget certain renovations that need to be done. And while you may want to wait until remodeling season to figure out the average cost of a bathroom renovation or the average cost of a kitchen renovation, there are still some great updates that can help make your home feel new again. 

Replace a Faucet

A simple update that can give your kitchen or bathroom a new look, updating a faucet is affordable and goes a long way. With so many new and stylish faucets that also range in price, whether you pick a fancy high faucet, touchless faucet, or any other, you're sure to find one that fits your style.

Install New Lighting

What makes the difference in a room? Lighting. Install that ceiling fan you have been putting off, or that new chandelier over your dining room table. Lighting can make a room feel inviting and ultimately help change a room's look from unwelcoming to welcoming. Basic knowledge of electrical work is helpful when installing new lighting, so hire a professional when it comes to the technical stuff!

Regrout Your Bathroom or Kitchen Tile

When first completed your grout looked beautiful, new and clean. Unfortunately, the wear and tear of years past can make that grout look dirty and dated. Winter is a good time to regrout, and if you're feeling adventurous, consider a colourful grout that will compliment your tile.

Flooring Update

Sick of that old carpet in your bedroom? Or the dated laminate in your living room? Installing a hardwood floor will modernize your home fast! Usually a quick and painless job, and when installing new flooring the homeowner has ultimate control of how much money needs to go into it.


Paint is an easy and cheap way to completely change the look of any room. A fresh coat of white, a bold bright red, a wall of fabulous patterns and stripes. When it comes to painting a wall, the possibilities are endless.


While remodeling season is on its way, for now it is still winter. However, just because it's winter doesn't mean you have to live in an old, dated home.
