3 Home Improvement Projects You Can Handle Before the Holidays

a house decorated with christmas lights.Believe it or not, Christmas is just three weeks away and before you know it, your house will be filed with family members and friends from near and far. You may be looking around your home wondering how you’ll ever get it ready for so many guests. You may also notice a few things you wouldn’t mind repairing or fixing up before everyone steps foot inside. The good news is that there are a few home renovation projects you can still take on and complete before Santa arrives.

1) Create more kitchen counter space
Who says you can’t give yourself a Christmas present? Everyone would love a little more counter space, especially when it comes time to prepare a big meal. A kitchen island not only gives you more prep space but can double its purpose and value by providing additional seating for family and guests. Adding an island can also provide some extra storage or even some helpful amenities such as a wine cooler or additional sink.

2) Update bathrooms and replace outdated fixtures
No one wants their guests walking into a messy or outdated bathroom. Whether it be a new toilet, a new sink, new hardware, or a little more storage space, updating your bathroom can increase appearance, efficiency, and even value! Storage space can decrease clutter, hide necessities out of plain sight, or keep additional linens nearby if needed. A new toilet or sink, besides looking a whole lot better, can provide better drainage and increase efficiency. Replacing the hardware can give the feel of a remodel at a much lower price point.

3) Freshup up walls with new coats of paint
A new coat of interior paint can do more than just freshen up a room – it can make it feel like a whole new space! You can use bright colors to liven up the place or choose more neutral tones to make the room feel warm and cozy. As an added benefit, you can choose an eco-friendly paint to improve the air quality in your home as well.
