January… It’s that quiet, cold month that follows noisy, activity-filled November and December, when everybody’s thoughts and energies are directed toward holiday preparations, welcoming guests, and simply enjoying everything the season has to offer.
But after New Year’s, company has gone, decorations have been stored away, and chilly, bleak January is underway. You’re looking at several more months of snow and blustery weather still ahead. It’s the perfect time to tackle a handful of those indoor repair and remodel projects you’ve been meaning to get to for a while, now.
How long have you been thinking your bathroom was due for a facelift? Perhaps you’ve been contemplating installing a new vanity; maybe changing out the sink and bathtub fixtures; replacing the caulking or re-grouting around the tub and tiles.
How about the kitchen? Is it time to install a new backsplash? Upgrade cabinet doors? Maybe your work areas could use some better lighting?
Other wintertime projects to consider are updating baseboard trim, installing a ceiling fan, replacing stair balusters, upgrading lighting fixtures or replacing your fireplace’s mantel.
These are just a handful of the relatively non-intrusive upgrading and remodeling jobs that can easily be undertaken in the winter months. All can be accomplished in a day or two with minimal disruption to you and your family’s regular routine, and they yield great results.
Remember, your local Handyman Matters office has friendly and professional craftsmen available to assist with these and any other remodeling and repair projects you’ve been considering, whether in January or any other time of the year.
During that time of year when the days are shortest and the nights their coldest, you can make a room or two in your house feel brand new!
