There are not too many days left before the busiest part of the holiday season will be upon us, but there is still plenty of time to spruce up your house for company. You may be running out of time for a complete overhaul, but there are multiple smaller things that you can do before you start putting up those decorations.
Here are 5 remodeling projects that you should consider completing as the holidays quickly approach:
- Refinish Your Kitchen Cabinets
If your kitchen cabinets are looking a little under the weather and need a facelift, you can simply refinish them instead of completely replacing them. Add a coat of stain or paint, hang them back up, and add some new hardware to complete the amazing new look.
- Install New Backsplash
A new backsplash can add visual appeal to any kitchen, so if you do not have any or it is looking outdated, now is the time to change things up a little. There are numerous styles of tiles and materials to choose from for backsplash, so pick one that matches the style of your kitchen and get creative with the results.
- Add a Buffet Bench
Adding a buffet bench will allow you to serve foods easily, without having everyone crowded around the table and the counters near your stove. There is an added bonus to incorporating this piece into your kitchen too. You will find that you have plenty of new storage options the rest of the year!
- Add a New Carpet to Your Stairs
The carpeting on stairs can get destroyed easily, which shouldn’t be too surprising since your family is continuously walking, or running, sliding, up and down them all day long! We recommend that you remove the carpeting that is on your stairs and replace it with a new runner. You will love the new look and the fact that it won’t take too long to do.
- Replace the Hardware in Your Guest Bathroom
Your guest bathroom will get a lot of use this holiday season, which is why you will want it to look as nice as possible. One of the easiest ways to make this room look fresh and new is by replacing the hardware. This includes the knobs and pulls, as well as towel rods and hooks. You may even want to take this project a step further by replacing the faucet in the sink. You’ll be amazed at how wonderful this space looks when you are finished.
These five projects will not take a lot of time, which means that you can choose to do one of them or all of them. Whatever you choose, you will have a head start on all your remodeling projects in the new year!
