If the weather that we’re getting lately is any indication of the season to come, then it’s high time to start prepping for a bundled up winter in Virginia. That also means that we’re going to have less opportunity to tackle those Virginia home improvement projects on our homes – at least the ones that involve the great outdoors, the patio, the deck, replacement windows, etc.
Preparation for colder weeks to come isn’t limited to just buying a new down jacked and water proof boots for the season. You can turn your remodeling attention inside and start thinking about some of the more simple renovations you can do to the interior of the home. It’s all about making sure that your home is cozy and comfortable for the blizzard-enveloped holidays and in Virginia, a few simple remodel ideas can do just that for your home. Now is the best time to start gearing up for those winter renovations.
If the snow keeps you inside, there’s the added bonus of putting together a DIY list coupled with the work of a Virginia general contractor – you’ll grow to appreciate the stuff to keep you busy as the outdoor fun grows limited.
So here are some winter remodel ideas for your home to get you started with a general contractor:
Your master bath or family bathrooms could use a few touch ups to make them a little more friendly. As we posted on previously, there’s a lot of benefit to be had by installing some in-floor radiant heating during a Virginia bathroom remodel. This type of install is energy efficient and can certainly keep things warm around the home when you step out of the shower.
Don’t forget about your kitchen while you’re planning for some Virginia home improvement projects this winter. As the days grow cold, families will gather in the kitchen space (especially for the holidays). Make your kitchen work for you by doing a few updates – bring in a bar or kitchen island to add more seating, customize your walls to add more storage space, update your cabinets and countertops to make the area more inviting. These winter renovation projects are simple with the right general contractor.
Of course when the snow starts flying you want to forget that the color white even exists. That’s why sometimes you just need to take your man cave to the next level. Your basement should be finished, prepped and ready so that when the Cavaliers start playing you’ve got a finished space, wet bar included, where you can take in the game. Need a space that is more rounded and family friendly? Customize the finished basement to include an entertainment center with surround sound and seating, video games and a ceiling that’s wired for sound as well as lights.
When you need that all important getaway from the rest of the family and the cold world outside, especially after a long day, consider upgrading the décor in your master bedroom. One of the best and most appreciated additions is a fireplace. If your home can take it, a Virginia general contractor can make your bedroom the most comfortable place in your home.
Lastly, consider an update to your foyer that has a customized setup to eliminate dirty floors, piled shoes and boots, coats and other winter accessories. Custom shelving, closets and drainage in the floor can make your foyer more friendly than soggy.
Whatever your desire, your home can be enhanced from the inside out during this holiday season, and none of the updates will break your bank as long as you work with the right quality Virginia general contractor.
