Published on

We get it, it’s cold! Snow is flying and you’ve been cooped up for way too long! Most people put off their improvement projects until summer but winter is a great time to check some projects off your list, here’s why:

  1. Well-known contractors are less busy 
  2. Extra time for exterior projects for summertime 
  3. Less time securing a permit 

Want to tackle the project yourself? We’ve put together some DIY renovations you can do indoors!









First, a simple yet effective method to spruce up your home and add value. Painting can be made simple if you keep a few key ideas in mind.

  • A thorough inspection of the room you want painted to take note of any cracks, flaking and peeling areas that may need scraped or sanded.
  • The more texture you have on your walls the thicker you’ll want your roller cover to be to reach into crevices
  • Protect anything you don’t want painted
  • Use primer
  • Paint from top to bottom

Turn your bathroom into a spa 

Does this cold weather have you dreaming of creating a master bathroom with all the amenities of your favorite spa? We’ve got some inspiration for you!







  • Heated tile floors 

Use radiant heating to warm for floors and you’ll never experience cold toes after a warm bath ever again. This feature really adds a spa like element to any bathroom!

When it comes to paint and countertops, stick with calming natural tones for enhanced relaxation.
