5 Pre-Holiday Home Renovation Projects

Whether you are the person who starts holiday shopping right after Halloween or the person who loves the hustle and bustle of the final few shopping days, the holiday season serves as a reminder that we will soon be closing out another year. Did you get all your home renovation projects done this year that were on your list?

Maybe that kitchen renovation is still in the dream phase, but there are always small and quick home renovation projects that can be done and there is still time to squeeze them in before we welcome 2017! If you will be hosting family and friends over the holidays, you may be in the mood to spruce up your home. Or maybe you just really do want to tackle your to-do list and start fresh in the New Year. Whatever the reason, choosing one of these pre-holiday renovation ideas is bound to make your home an even more special place to curl up and enjoy the holiday season.

  1. Outdoor Landscaping

If you’ve always wanted a cozy corner of the yard that included a fit pit, there is no time like the present to put one in. Add the fire pit, stock some wood and purchase all weather chairs. There is nothing better than warming up by a fire outside while you and your guests enjoy hot chocolate after playing the snow.

Your outdoor garden can also be refreshed with winter shrubs like holly and adding winter planters to your front porch or driveway is another lovely way to be holiday ready.

  1. Feature Wall

Choose one wall in your living room, dining room or family room to be a dramatic focal point and then decide what type of design direction you to go. A feature wall can be created using paint or wallpaper, or even barn board or tongue and groove panelling. Add accents like family pictures, mirrors, an electric fireplace or unique art.

  1. Backsplash & Counters

If a full kitchen renovation is not on the books, you can still renovation and upgrade your kitchen by having your backsplash redone and installing new counter tops. These small renovations can also be done in any bathroom in your home. These type of upgrades can instantly modernize the room and make it look very refreshed.

  1. Install Crown Mouldings

Not only do crown mouldings make your home feel more upscale, they also add value to your home for resale.

  1. Lighting

As the days get shorter and we have less hours with natural light, you may notice yourself assessing the lighting in your home. Adding new fixtures or pot lights are a great way to brighten up your home.
