Top 5 Home Interior Upgrades To Consider This Winter

Residential

Winter is a wonderful time to take on big interior home improvement projects! It's the slow season for contractors, which means that availability is good and schedules are wide open. If you're considering which home improvement projects are the best for completing at this chilly time of year, take a look at some of our suggestions.

Finish the Basement

Give your kids somewhere warm and out of the way to go when the snow outside is falling. With a finished basement, you'll have room for storage, laundry, a man-cave or whatever your lacks. Finished basements also improve your property value, and can be a draw for home buyers in the spring. In fact, basement remodels can have as much as a 70% return on investment when all is said and done.

Add an Attic Apartment

Whether you're seeking a place in your home where your in-laws can live comfortably or you're just hoping to grow your family, an attic apartment gives you space to house more people without making your home feel cramped and uncomfortable. Attic apartments are a great way to bring families together and also make your home more attractive when it's time to sell. Plan to get as much as a 77% ROI on a successful attic renovation.

Kitchen Remodel

With the holidays coming up, you might be dreaming about having a big home-cooked meal and inviting all your relatives over for turkey and stuffing. If your current kitchen is too small to make this happen, now is the time to consider a remodel. Sometimes a simple reorganization can free up space and make your kitchen everything you want it to be. Other times a kitchen bump-out can give you the room you need to make a proper Thanksgiving meal. Best of all, kitchen remodels have a 66% ROI.

Bathroom Remodel

Bathroom remodels that make bathrooms more functional can actually make it easier to have company at the holidays. Bathroom remodels also make the task of selling your house simpler and more profitable. In fact, some sources actually state that the ROI on a bathroom remodel can be as much as 100%.

Garage Remodel

If you're already using the basement for other purposes but need somewhere to send the kids when the weather outside is looking cold and gloomy, consider this garage remodel project. Adding insulation and climate control gives your garage useable space where you or your kids can work on projects or have a fun time.
