Popular Winter Home Renovations

Jan 7, 2014 | Flooring, Renovations

Many people believe that home improvement projects are just for the spring and summer months. There are many home improvement projects that can be done during winter. The most important thing to remember when remodeling your home is to choose the right projects that will give you the highest return if you decide to sell.

Here are the top three home remodeling projects you can do in the winter that give you the largest return on your investment.

The Bathroom

Renovating the bathroom will give you one of the largest returns on your investment. Normally you will recoup more of the cost if you choose mid-range appliances rather than going higher end. Home trends are showing that larger bathrooms are what consumers are looking for. During the winter, remodelers can knock down walls to replace rarely used formal dining rooms or guest rooms and expand a kitchen or a bathroom to create a great return on your investment. Adding a larger shower and separate tub in the bathroom is another way to get the largest return on your home remodeling project. If you do not have the money to renovate the whole bathroom, refinishing the bathtub or replacing a sink or toilet is another small project that can be done during the winter to increase the value of your home.

New Carpet

The winter months are a perfect time to redo the floors in your home. End-of-the-year sales are a great way to save some money on re-carpeting your whole house. During the winter, carpet installers tend to have a slowdown in their business, so now is the perfect time to get a great deal. Replacing the carpet and padding as a winter home improvement project will increase the comfort and resale value of your home. There are many different types of carpets so be sure to ask the experts before choosing carpet for a high-traffic area of your home.

The Kitchen

The kitchen is where you will get the most money back for any home remodel improvements that you do. During the winter you can refinish cabinets, countertops, and appliances or just give the kitchen a new coat of paint to improve the look and resale value of your home. With just a few cosmetic changes, you can give your kitchen a whole new look. Adding a decorative backsplash or putting new pulls and knobs on your cabinets are inexpensive ways to give your kitchen a fresh new look. The most visible element of your kitchen is the cabinets, so refinishing cabinets can give your kitchen a brand new appearance and increase the resale value if you choose to sell your home. After your cabinets have been painted or refinished, it’s time to address the countertops. Believe it or not, many laminates have improved in quality so much over the last few years that some of them are very hard to distinguish from real granite or natural stone.

Whether you are looking at just remodeling one room or doing a whole house remodel during the winter, getting a professional opinion is always the first place to start. The experts at RH Homes can assist with planning your winter renovation.
