Winter is a great time to tackle indoor home projects!
Take some inspiration from the upgrades below!
1. Add a spa showerhead
Replacing your showerhead is a quick and easy way to upgrade your bathroom—and what’s better than a hot, spalike shower on a frigid morning?
2. Install heated bathroom floors
A more involved but incredibly rewarding bathroom project is installing electric heating mats under your tile floors, so that you’ll have a nice warm floor to walk onto after your spa shower.
3. Make over your mudroom
Winter means snowy, slushy boots, bulky winter jackets, and soggy mittens … which means it’s prime to make sure your mudroom is up to snuff.
4. Trim your trees
So, this one may surprise you—it surprised us! According to Lisa Tadewaldt, the founder of Urban Forest Pro, winter is actually the best time to prune your trees and shrubs.
“During winter, the trees are bare of their foliage, and that allows the pruner clear visibility,” Tadewaldt says. She adds that because shrubs and trees are dormant in winter, they’re less likely to attract a systematic disease or insect infestation.
5. Organize your garage
Snow shovels, ice scrapers, snow melt, salt—winter comes with a lot of extra stuff that you’ll want to corral into one designated storage area. If you have a garage, that’s ideal, but a closet or other space that’s just for all that snow-related stuff will also work.
