Winter

Depending on where you live, there are certain times of the year when remodeling outdoors is difficult. Trying to add siding to a home in the middle of winter is troublesome and could cost you more. That is why many families wait until the summer to start their remodeling projects. If you are considering remodeling parts of your home, dividing them up throughout the year may help. Saving projects that can only be done during the summer allows you to focus on projects that can be done anytime of the year. As winter approaches, consider these best home remodeling projects for the winter.

Bathrooms

Bathroom renovations do not always include major work being done to the structure of the home. This makes bathroom renovations a great project for the winter time. When planning a bathroom renovation, start by choosing on the type of shower or tub you would like. The tub is going to take up a lot of space, so it helps to know this before you start planning your counters and sinks.

If you do not have a second bathroom, then having your only bathroom off limits for several weeks can be hard to deal with. For those that only have a single bathroom, it may help to wait until you have at least a half bathroom somewhere else in the home. If that is the case, then this might be a good time to think about making a bedroom a master suite with their own bathroom.

Kitchens

Since kitchens are one of the most important parts of the home, it is often the first area that is remodeled. When you are planning a new design for a kitchen, it may help to hire a designer. There are many different aspects of a kitchen, much more than a standard room. With all the decisions you need to make, having someone to take your needs and work them into a design can be a lifesaver.

When you plan the kitchen, design it around your main appliances. Keep the refrigerator from being too close to the stove or the sink. This is true of any other major appliances that you plan on including in your new kitchen.

Basements

Having a basement finished is a great project for the winter. A finished basement adds an extra room to your home and can help keep the heat inside. The amount of rooms a house has can add to its value. This will help you create equity in your home. Equity is often considered when applying for a major loan, such as a car loan or business loan.

For the most part, any home remodeling project that does not involve work on the outside of the home can still be done in the winter; however, certain projects require less transporting of material in and out of the home. That is why these three parts of the home are the best

locations for remodeling in the winter.
