With winter at the door, leaving the house will most likely be less appealing for many of us who prefer the warmer months. If you’re expecting to spend a fair share of the weekends at home, you may be thinking of ways to fill the time. While outdoor projects are probably out of the question, you can still make yourself busy with a variety of indoor home improvement gigs. Besides winter inspections such as checking for frozen pipes, these projects mainly involve aesthetic, practical, as well as emotional benefits. From simple ones like adorning a room with string lights to more time-consuming bathroom remodel, the results will have you thanking the rainy weather for providing the opportunity to get the job done — otherwise, would you honestly take the time to sort out your garage when you could go hiking?
Switch Out Your Wallpaper for a New One
If you’re looking for a project that will keep you busy for a few hours while offering a new aesthetic, consider changing that wallpaper that’s been around for a few years — or adding one where there isn’t. While there isn’t a specific season to carry out this job, you could make it as part of a house remodeling for the winter. A fresh layer of wallpaper will not only bring new life into your interior design but will also give you a sense of vibrancy during a rather gloomy time of year. Also, applying wallpaper to a bare wall can be rather beneficial for its durability and longevity. You don’t even have to break the bank to get this project on its feet. The average price you might pay for a roll of wallpaper is $35. With a handful of basic tools and a day to spare, you’ll have a new wallpaper to enjoy for quite some time.
