Below are five home improvement projects you should invest in right away.
Refinish the Cabinets
If your kitchen cabinets needed updating years ago than this will be one of the first home improvements you should take on. Giving your cabinetry an high-end upgrade can give your kitchen the ultimate facelift.
Upgrade Your Kitchen
Since there will be a lot of food preparation during the holidays you’ll want to ensure that your kitchen is both functional and stylish. Now is the time to invest in a brand new backsplash. Be sure to select a classic pattern with a timeless hue. Also, you’ll want to make room for extra built-in storage. You may even consider adding in a built-in buffet to hold all of the food and drinks your guests will be feasting on.
Install A New Stair Runner
It’s so easy for a stair runner to look used, worn and even dirty after some time. Therefore, before you have guests in your home you should get rid of that dated, contractor grade stair runner and opt for something with a canvas border or timeless hue. There are numerous style options when it comes to choosing a stair runner.
Make Over the Fireplace
Who doesn’t love to gather around the fireplace during the holidays? Give your fireplace a modern look by making a contemporary update. Consider building a mantel out of wooden planks.
Create A Focal Point in the Room
You’ll need to wow your guests a little. This is done by adding a focal point to the room. A focal point could be painting an accent wall a bold color or even a beautiful painting. You can mix prints as well as layer different shades within the same hue.
