While some renovations just have to wait until spring or summer, there are plenty of home improvement projects you can hire a tradesperson to tackle right now!
Replacement doors featuring raised panels, carved embellishments or frosted glass inserts all add architectural interest and depth. Or you could use glass panels to allow more light through.
There are advantages to replacing windows at this time of the year. It’s easier to hire a professional window installer because their schedules are quieter, you’ll get great deals on replacement windows, and the best thing of all is you’ll get an immediate return on your investment with lower energy costs.

A fresh coat of paint in a new colour will transform your home by updating the whole room, bringing tired furniture back to life and changing the mood entirely. In terms of fumes, modern low VOC (volatile organic compounds) are so much more forgiving than older paints.
Remove old light fixtures and ceiling fans and replace them with new ones to update the style of your home. Find something dramatic and striking for a contemporary room. For a more traditional room look at installing a crystal chandelier for that extra touch of class and romance.
Dimmer switches can also help you create the right mood or improve your television viewing pleasure. Hire a registered electrician through Builderscrack to ensure safe and secure installation.
