Establishing a budget for your kitchen remodel isn't easy. With several components involved, it can be a tricky to even know where to start.

Holiday remodeling projects can cover many areas of your home that require attention. For example:

  • You may need more space or better efficiency in your kitchen
  • Your guest bathroom might benefit from updating
  • You might want to improve your entertainment space and have better flow from the dining and living room areas
  • You might find yourself lacking guest bedroom space or just sufficient storage space for your holiday entertainment items
  • A simple lighting update might improve the ambiance of your great room or party areas

There is Time Before the Holidays

While you may think that a home remodeling project could not possibly be completed in time, the right team can get the job done for you. Think about the different projects that you can choose that will make your celebrations even better.

In the Kitchen

A kitchen island is the perfect example of a project that will quickly give you more counter space and additional kitchen storage. Adding an island with an electric receptacle will provide you with more serving room for hot dishes.

Updating your cabinets or counter tops will give your entire kitchen a bright, fresh look. New cabinetry can also provide better storage. Consider some under-cabinet lighting to add a warm feeling and extra light for food preparation.

Bathroom Remodeling

Bathroom remodeling is another project that can easily be finished in time for your holiday guests. You can have your bathroom updated with a new shower and bathtub installation. The noisy toilet can be replaced quickly with a newer, more attractive model. Replace the old sink and vanity with a pedestal style or a vanity that provides more storage space. Have the worn out tile and flooring replaced to give your bathroom an elegant appearance.

Around the House

Spruce up your guest room with better closet storage or more privacy. You might even consider adding an extra bathroom to accommodate guests.

Changing old light fixtures is a smart way to spruce up your home. Consider sconce lighting for walls or automatic lighting for entrance ways. The right lighting will add beauty and ambiance for both large and small entertaining needs.

The most important part of your home remodeling project is choosing the right company in Connecticut to complete the project for you. You do not want to work with a company that leaves you with a half-finished job right before the holidays. Choose a remodeling contractor with a proven track record of on-time and on-budget completion and satisfied clients, like Litchfield Builders.
