Now that the summer is almost over, you need to start thinking of what is left behind from your summer projects that haven’t been finished or maybe even started yet. If you feel that you’ve spent practically almost all your summer on your home improvement projects, here are a few tips to help you along have your home ready before winter settles.
One of the best places to start with is the kitchen. The reason is because this room is usually the most popular in the entire home. Don’t start replacing your kitchen cabinets just now, what you can do instead is to do a cabinet refacing, or simply replace the various accessories that are easily visible. For example you can replace door knobs, change lamps and light fixtures and move furniture around the room for better placement.
You can’t move countertops or cabinets though, so you need to let them be. What you can do instead is change the room style and theme with something else that is eye catching. If you have a prominent color that the kitchen is focused on, you can use that to your advantage to add either a rustic, or a modern and contemporary style to the cooking area.
If your cooking space has a tall ceiling, you can add to it a nice chandelier that will enhance the appeal of the room. However a low ceiling will work best with some recessed lighting or mini pendant lights instead. If you have darker corners in your kitchen, they can be easily lightened up by some tabletop lights that are strategically placed around the room.
Kitchen is only one of the rooms that you need to tackle before winter sets in. You need to go systematically through the other rooms and check for improvements that you can easily do, one by one. Often the small things will make the biggest difference in the room, and they are also the fastest to implement.
