Winter renovation might not seem like the most inviting thing you can do when it’s cold outside. However, there are some opportunities to make the most of the time of year and take advantage of the way you think about it, from opening the space to creating an inviting and warm office.
Splashing Out on Being Cozy
Even the most ardent outdoors person enjoys the cosiness of a warm home. A warm home feels safe and provides essential security, leading to satisfaction. While renovating during winter, why not splash out a little on some cosy new features guaranteed for enjoyment? Any good fireplace store has a wide range of products to fit your aesthetic, from traditional log burners to modern electric ones inserted into feature walls or becoming part of the decor themselves.
A View to Seasonal Wonders
Who doesn’t love nature? The winter weather can keep you indoors more than you may like, however. When it’s cold, we tend to stay warm indoors and can miss out on some of the natural wonders of winter. However, with floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows, you can create your own vista to the outside world of your garden while relaxing in the warmth of your Home. Nesting birds, winter vegetable and herb growth, and hibernating animals are just a few you might see.
Winter Renovation Can Save Your Budget
Renovation is expensive, and you must create a budget. However, work and life gets in the way, and it isn’t uncommon for budgets to go over a bit. Houzz and Home found that around 30% of home renovation projects end up exceeding budgets. However, you can save money with a renovation during winter. The summer is when work is plentiful for contractors. Yet, with a winter slump, they may offer you their services at a discount to make up for the shortfall of work.
Working from Home
Working from Home has become very normalized over the past few years, and more than half of office staff now work from home at least one day per week. That being said, many home workers do so in inadequate conditions such as cramped spaces, unsuitable desks and chairs, and cold areas. And being winter, you may not want to be at the office as much because of the weather. A renovation means you can address your needs and create the space you need.
Cold Weather Relaxation
Being cosy next to a fireplace with a steaming mug and a blanket is one thing. But with the renovation planning and working from Home, you need a break. A renovation project presents the opportunity to install some luxury into your life by doing just this. Maybe the bathroom upgrade could include a shower enclosure with a steamer. Or perhaps the home office would benefit from a full-sized massage chair for when you are just having one of those terrible days.
Making your Home more cozy makes sense when completing a winter renovation. Yet renovating in winter can also save you money. And relaxation devices are a nice little bonus for those days.
