Home Improvement Projects for the Fall

With the biggest holiday season on its way, fall is the perfect time for those interior remodeling projects. Whether you are preparing for a big family get-together or playing it safe with your immediate family at your house, you will want your home looking its best. Let’s take a look at some ideas for any budget.

New Flooring

If you are considering new flooring before guests step foot in your home, there are a variety of options to fit your budget needs.  The type of flooring you choose will depend on where it will be placed, how durable you need it, and how much you want to spend.

  • Laminate Flooring: Can be used in any room; Inexpensive, easy to maintain but not as durable as the flooring it replicates i.e. hardwood or tile
  • Hardwood Flooring: Can be used in any room; Expensive but durable
  • Linoleum and vinyl sheets: Best for the kitchen and bathroom areas; water resistant, inexpensive but vulnerable to tearing
  • Ceramic or Porcelain Tile: Best for the kitchen and bathroom areas; water resistant and durable but more expensive

Open Floor Plans

Taking out the wall between your living room and dining room can open up space to accommodate large gatherings and can make the best remodeling project for the holidays.  Although this renovation project is costly, it also adds more value to your home. It is important to have a professional help you with this project due to the technicality and skill level of the work.

Chair Rail Molding

Adding a 3 foot high trim molding along walls makes a beautiful and functional option for bare walls.  Chair rail molding can make walls look elegant and more eye appealing.  They also provide some protection against scuffs and dings made by furniture close to the wall.

Kitchen Countertops

The kitchen gets a lot of attention during the holiday season. Not only are you entertaining in the kitchen but you are also cooking and preparing meals for guests.  If you need more counter space, a kitchen island may be a great solution. Depending on the space, an island can also provide additional seating for guests. If counter space is not an issue in your kitchen, you may consider an update to your countertop with granite, marble, chop block, or polished cement.  A least expensive option would be to resurface old countertops with an epoxy coating.
