By Paige Tepping
RISMEDIA, January 10, 2011—As winter continues to stretch on, homeowners across the country are anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring and the return of the warmer weather. While most homeowners put remodeling projects on hold throughout the winter months, there are a few ways to update your space without taking the time and spending the money on a major renovation project.
According to DivaToolbox.com, the following projects will help homeowners get over their cabin fever while making their home feel new.
Get organized: A simple task that homeowners can take on in the winter while spending more time indoors is to get organized. While organizing an entire home can be a time-consuming project, picking just one area to focus on will make the job more manageable. Winter is a great time to organize your home so that you are ready to start fresh once spring arrives. Not only will you feel as if you have accomplished something on your to-do list, but your home will seem less chaotic once everything is put in its place.
A little redecorating: Another way to freshen up your home during the long winter months is to update your décor. Simply changing the decorative accents within your home can make a big difference in changing your home’s look and feel. Decide how drastic a change you want to make before you begin purchasing items.
Make a plan: If you aren’t ready to make the commitment to organize or update your existing space, you can still use the remaining winter months productively by planning ahead for any home improvements you are going to undertake once spring arrives. Take the time now to research any projects you are planning on starting in the spring; plan your budget and even get a head start on picking out and ordering any materials that will be needed. By doing this, you will be ready to hit the ground running once spring arrives.
