Homeowners that feel stuck inside during the winter months could take the opportunity of being indoors to complete home improvement projects. HSH.com has come up with a list of projects homeowners can complete while hiding from chilly weather.
According to the source, homeowners who are bored with their flooring can install wood floors or spruce up existing flooring. While the installation of solid hardwood flooring requires sanding and finishing, the source says homeowners can opt to use carpet tiles or a floating laminate floor system. Laminate look-alikes are put together with a snap-and-lock system - meaning no nailing or gluing - and is also a cheaper option for homeowners.
In the kitchen, homeowners can complete simple small projects that can recreate the space. Homeowners can change the look of cabinets by adding new hardware, which is both affordable and an easy to install. Larger scale alterations include changing out countertops, which can be a tedious task, so many homeowners may choose to hire a professional.
Painting is another great home improvement project for the winter season, says HSH. Changing the color of one room or every room is an inexpensive, do-it-yourself project that can completely change the look of a home.
