The cold, long winters call for improvements you can make around the house that will make it warm, comfortable and inviting. When it’s cold outside, these will make sure you’re cozy inside.

Add a fire pit or a fireplace to your sunroom

A sunroom can is a perfect room for you to enjoy the outdoors with the comfort of being indoors. Adding a fireplace to your sunroom can not only make the room nice and toasty, but it can also add a little bit of drama to the room. This would make the room a perfect place for you to enjoy evenings in the company of friends, family and loved ones.

A simple paint job can do wonders

Painting your house can give it a fresh, new feel. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, you could go with bright, bold colors. For simple elegance go with subtle, cool shades. In other words, this is your chance to let your imagination run wild. You could tone down the colors or go crazy with them. The choice is entirely yours.

Consider re-flooring

If you have gotten bored of your plain old carpeted flooring, maybe it’s time for a change. Maybe you’d like to get some new tiles? Perhaps consider some hardwood flooring? If re-flooring is not a feasible option, spring for a new carpet, by all means!

Change the counter-tops in the kitchen

Bring life to your kitchen by changing your counter-tops. Whether you’re bored of your old counter tops and want a new style to spruce up your kitchen OR if your counter tops badly need fixing, take this opportunity to get new ones. Your choices are numerous, ranging from tile and laminate, to concrete and engineered stone. You could always opt for granite, glass, or marble counter tops if you’re feeling extravagant. And while you’re at it, maybe replace your sink and kitchen faucet along with everything!

Replace your windows

Go in for replacement windows and let in the light! Some homes are dreary even in full summer sun. If your home seems dim year-round, maybe it’s time to rethink the windows. Identify which rooms suffer from a lack of light. Some great opportunities for adding windows could include a new door with an inset window, or replace a standard slider with tall French sliding doors.

Fix your roof

You do not want a leaky roof in winter. The cold season brings with it low temperatures and lots of moisture and that spells trouble during this time of the year. If you see any leaks in the attic, water seeping around the chimney or if the shingles on your roof are cracked or torn, you might want to look into getting your roof fixed immediately.

The cold season can be a great time to get repairs done around the house. With your imagination and just a little bit of creativity, you can turn your home into a winter wonderland!
