The fall and winter season is a great time to work on the interior of your home. While it is a little cold for outdoor work, the inside can get some updates and enhancements before the new year. You don’t have to do a big remodel to see some drastic improvements in your home. Take a look at 5 of our favorite home enhancement ideas!
UPDATE YOUR FIREPLACE
If you have a fireplace in your home, you probably get a lot of use out of it throughout the winter season. Why not give it an update to create a brand-new aesthetic in your home. You can give it a new coat of paint or even add brick or stone. If you don’t already have a mantle on your fireplace, this is an easy and inexpensive way to give it an entirely new look. You will have a great place to hang your stockings this holiday season as a bonus!
GIVE YOUR FLOORING A BOOST
Whether you have carpet, tile, hardwoods, or linoleum—give your floors some extra care and attention this fall and winter. They have seen a lot of traffic over the year and could use some love. If you have a lot of carpet, hire a professional to come in and give them a good clean. Hardwoods need to be polished on occasion to restore them to their original shine. It would be a good time to go through and fill or repair any noticeable scratches as well. If you have linoleum that has seen better days, you can try to repair the worst areas or even put down some new flooring yourself.
FRESH COAT OF PAINT FOR WALLS AND TRIM
Giving your home a fresh coat of paint on the walls and trim is a dramatic way to completely revamp the look and feel of your home. It can be a big project, however, and if you don’t have time to do every room at the same time, consider tackling your most used rooms—like the living room.
RENEW YOUR CABINETS
There are a lot of ways you can renew your cabinets but painting them is an easy and affordable way to update the appearance of your kitchen. Some of our favorite cabinet colors this year are dark blues and grays.
CHANGE OUT OLD AND DATED HARDWARE
For a quick update in your home, you can change out all the doorknobs and replace the hardware on all your cabinets, drawers, and dressers. This is a fairly easy job that can probably be completed in one day, but will give your home an instant update.
