Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean the Outdoor Solutions team isn’t hard at work! Did you know that, in addition to our exterior work like decks, porches, and hardscapes, we also do indoor home remodels? It’s true!

Since winter is the best time to tackle indoor renovation projects, we thought we’d share a few of our top recommendations for projects that pack a punch but don’t require a major investment of time or money. After all, even minor renovations can add major value to your home. 

So, without further ado, here are three high-ROI indoor renovation projects to think about doing this winter.

1. Finish Your Basement

If your home’s basement is unfinished, consider finishing it this winter. 

One of the best ways to increase the value of your home is to increase the number of rooms it has. So turning underused space like a basement into additional bedrooms, a family room, or a home office can give you a lot of bang for your buck. Not only are you adding livable space that you can use now, but you’ll also see a great return on your investment when it comes time to sell.

If your basement is already finished, think of what you can add to it — a home bar, built-in storage cabinets or bookshelves, a fireplace, a home theater…the options are nearly endless!

2. Spruce Up Stairwells and Entrances

Your home’s entrance is the first thing guests see when they visit, so make sure yours offers a great first impression by updating it this winter.

In the day-to-day, your entryway often acts as a “drop zone,” where shoes and coats get tossed as family members come in the door. Help keep things organized with built-in storage, wall hooks, and furniture that plays double duty (like a bench with shoe storage beneath). Keeping things neat and tidy will make your entry more inviting and your space much more pleasant to live in.

The space beneath stairwells can also be a great spot to add shelving or built-in cabinets, turning that underused space into a functional storage solution. In addition, consider refinishing hardwood flooring or replacing carpeting on stairs to spruce things up even more. 

Finally, a fresh coat of paint in your entryway or stairwell can make a huge difference. Consider a new color to brighten up your space and make your home feel brand new again.

3. Update the Bathroom

Updating your bathroom can provide a great return on investment…and it doesn’t need to be a complete overhaul. Even a minor bathroom remodel goes a long way.

Start by replacing elements like the tub, toilet, sink, faucet, or vanity. Even upgrading your shower head can add more value to your home (and possibly save you money by using water more efficiently). Add a fresh coat of paint and a mirror with a frame that matches your hardware, and your bathroom will have a whole new look. Finally, brighten things up with updated bathroom lighting.

In addition, if your bathroom is showing signs of mold or mildew, or if your mirror is often foggy, it’s time to replace your bathroom vent fan. A properly functioning vent fan helps keep your bathroom dry and odor-free and prevent moisture damage, so this fix is well worth the effort.
