Home Renovation Projects

 
The events of 2020 completely altered the way we live, and with that, how much we value our homes. If you’ve fallen out of love with your space during the pandemic, but you’re not ready to make a move, here are some simple winter renovation projects that will help you create a home that feels calm, cozy and functional.  
 

Create a Home Gym 

Ready to get fit? Assemble a home gym that makes you want to exercise. Peloton-style bikes and other compact exercise equipment like Tonal are suitable for smaller spaces, or you can go pro and convert an extra room into a full-scale gym. If you plan on investing in equipment like dumbbells, plan out storage to avoid it taking over your home. 
 
 

Bring in More Natural Light

One popular home design trend for 2021 is adding more natural light, which makes perfect sense considering Vitamin D helps strengthen your immune system, boosts your mood and improves sleep. If you’re seeking out more warmth at home, consider adding a skylight to the kitchen or entry way or floor-to-ceiling retractable doors leading outside to a courtyard.
 
 

Update Your Laundry Room

To make a bleak laundry space more functional, add shelves and bins for laundry baskets and detergent, and put a countertop over the washer and dryer. You get storage space and a place to fold clothes. Add wallpaper or a fun tile pattern, to make the chore-heavy room more interesting and enjoyable.  
 
 

Create or Expand Your Home Office

According to Yelp, there was an 80% increase in searches and review mentions of home offices from 2019 to 2020. Now, more than ever, it’s important we make space to separate our work from home and to make room for our artistic pursuits. See our recent blog for 15 ways to transform literally any space–big or small–into a functional home office. 
 
 

Change Out Cabinet Hardware

A hardware redo is one of the easiest winter home projects because all you need is a screwdriver and an hour or two. If you inherited minimalist cabinets with no pulls at all, you're adding function, too. It's simple and will have a dramatic effect on a room.
 
 

Put in a New Bathroom Vanity

Give your bathroom a completely new look by updating your vanity. You can pull out your old one without making clouds of dust, and swap it with a single, prefab unit you won't have to paint. No fumes, no dust, no problem for a winter home project.
 
 

Install a Walk-in Shower

Create a spa-like atmosphere by replacing your old tub with a walk-in shower. Go one step further and add a bench and bold tile or marble pattern, for a touch of tranquility.
