Winter may seem like an inopportune time to renovate your home but it is actually one of the best, especially when it comes to indoor renovations. Contractors will be easier to schedule and the tools and supplies will likely be more accessible. Here are some great winter renovation ideas:


A fireplace is often the focal point of a home, especially in the family room. Consider renovating your fireplace now so that you can enjoy it throughout the duration of the winter. Great options can be rebricking, painting it a fresh new colour, changing its size, shape or style, or adding a mantel. Even just making sure your fireplace is in working order can make the space feel more livable and add a sense of cosiness to the room.


Changing dated flooring will completely transform a space! The options today can be overwhelming, but even just keeping it simple will do the trick – try hardwood or laminate on the main floors, refresh carpeting, and add a fun patterned tile in the bathroom. There are so many colours and finishes to suit any preference. If you already love your floors consider instead adding an in-floor heating system to keep your toes extra warm throughout the winter.


Make every morning feel like you are at the spa by renovating the bathroom. Have a jetted tub installed or retile the shower and make a luxurious space for you and the family to enjoy. Don’t want to spend the money on a full renovation? Try updating faucets, shower heads, towel racks and even mirrors to create the most impact on a budget.
