The New Year is the perfect time to get home renovation projects done in every space of your home. You can improve the value of your home easily in a 12 month period.


Lighting is one of the easiest things to change within a home that makes the biggest difference. A tube skylight is a great addition to any home and it brings direct sunlight into living spaces. However, even if you can’t afford to make any permanent changes, add lamps or new shades around the house for a refreshed look this new year.


Getting organized is something everybody needs in their home. The garage is usually used for workshop space and other projects. Also, bikes and outdoor equipment can be stored away from your home and in your garage. Also, garages are the perfect place to store anything unsightly you don’t want in your home this new year. Just make sure to leave room for your cars!


The basement can be turned into another living space with a fresh coat of paint and additional lighting. Also, these changes are inexpensive but can give your basement the lift it desperately needs. Add additional seating or new accessories that increase the usability of the space for the new year.

Kitchen and Bath

Similarly, a simple solution to any home is to update paint and cabinet pulls or even adding a backsplash. There are even larger projects where you gut the whole kitchen and bath. Also, these two rooms are the key focus when planning out a year in home improvement. Similarly, these rooms can be easily customized and improved within the new year.


Furthermore, every year they invent new technology for flooring. Bring in hardwood tiles in your bathroom or any of the many options available that fit your budget and style. Alternatively, if you don’t have the budget to change flooring entirely, go ahead and invest in a rug that will stay with you for years. Furthermore, it will help separate large living spaces.
