Warm Up Your Home With These Winter-Weather Projects

Winter is a time to stay warm and cozy in the comfort of your home. However, if you’re anything like us, all that time indoors has pointed out the minor (and major) inconveniences of your home. Whether it’s a kitchen with too little space for the whole family to cook together, a bathroom that feels more functional than tranquil, or perhaps a family or bonus room that isn’t optimized to fit your lifestyle, winter is the perfect time to work on making indoor improvements to your home.

In this article, we’ll explore some of the ways Corinthian Fine Homes can help you make the most of your home via kitchen, bathroom, and family space remodeling projects.

The Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home, which makes it the perfect place to start when planning a remodel. The key is to make your kitchen more than just a place where you cook dinner. The goal is to create a warm and welcoming space where family and friends can gather for good meals and lively conversation. Here are some smaller changes you can make to your kitchen that can transform it from fine to fabulous…

As a rule, we recommend starting a kitchen project by repainting the walls. This sets the tone for the entire project and makes choosing tile, cabinetry, and other finishes much easier. Whether you opt for a bright color to enhance the personality of the room and create a cheerful kitchen or prefer neutrals that will allow you to accent with other elements, our recommendation is to choose a color that will lend itself to a timeless kitchen design.

Upgrading the hardware in your space might feel like a small change, but it can make a large difference in the style and feel of your kitchen. Consider a chrome finish for a pop of shine or keep it subtle with bronze or satin nickel for an understated and classic look. No matter the finish, hardware should be chosen on the basis of function over fashion.

Finally, a backsplash is a great way to add more of your personal style to your kitchen’s design. There is a near-endless supply of tiles in all shapes, sizes, textures, and colors to choose from. It is important to choose wisely because, as a focal point in the room, backsplashes must be both functional and fashionable. Consider how and what you typically cook, as this may inform the choices you make for tile or grout color and textures. If your home doesn’t already have a backsplash, this is a great project to start with because tile prevents water and grease from destroying your walls.

For larger projects where you want to do a complete overhaul of your kitchen’s layout and a full cosmetic update, we recommend enlisting the help of a professional with the knowledge needed to successfully plan plumbing updates, move, or tear down walls, or create an addition to add space.

The Bathroom

When the cold sets in, a hot shower or bath is the perfect way to warm up. Spa-like bathrooms are currently one of the top bathroom design trends, so why not make 2024 the year you take your bathroom from functional to fashionable?

One of the easiest ways to upgrade your bathroom is to change out your shower head. If you are unhappy with your current water pressure or just want something a bit more luxurious, there are countless options for finishes and functionality that can elevate the look of your bathroom and enhance your shower experience. Bring the spa to your home by installing a rain shower head with a handheld element to massage tired muscles and make cleaning your shower a breeze.

If you’re just looking to enhance the style of your bathroom, consider painting the walls. Similar to the kitchen, a bit of paint can give your space a completely different look. Finish this update with a complementary towel color to brighten the room with a pop of color.

If you’re looking for a more intensive bathroom remodel, Corinthian Fine Homes specializes in upscale bathroom designs for Indianapolis area homeowners.

Family Spaces

Winter means lots of time spent indoors with the ones you love. However, if your family space is too crowded or doesn’t provide the layout or function you need, time spent together can quickly go from fun to stressful. In this case, consider upgrading the areas where you spend the most time.

The addition or update of a fireplace and hearth can elevate a space, adding not only a focal point but a place for family and friends to gather during the cold winter months. We recommend adding tile or natural stone to the fireplace surround for a truly customizable design. Adding a custom mantelpiece is the perfect way to complete a fireplace project.

One of our favorite ways to personalize and upgrade your space is the addition of a family photo wall or a gallery to the main hallway of your home. When done with artistry, this element can tell your family’s story through your cherished memories.

For families looking to add a standout element to their home, we recommend considering an in-home theater or game room. Our team can help you create a built-in media and entertainment space to make staying in more exciting and enjoyable for the whole family.
