5 favourite fall renovation projects

We are now well into fall.  Each morning is a little cooler and each day a little shorter, but that does not mean your home has to lack in warmth. In search of a solution, spoke fall renovation and décor ideas with Paul Napolitano of Royal Home improvements, a GTA leader in residential renovations.  Following are five themes to consider while home renovation planning this fall.

  1. Transform a bathroom into a spa: “With a few updates to your bathroom every day can be a spa day.”  Napolitano explains.  Modern touches such as heated towel racks, steam showers, wireless audio, natural materials, shower benches, curb-less showers and rain showerheads can all create the feeling of a spa in your home.
  1. Upgrade the floor: “Fall is a good time to upgrade your flooring. Keep comfort and warmth top of mind.” Napolitano says.   Colour and material are always part of the choice.  But in-floor heating is a great option now for any renovation project. It adds value to your home, is energy efficient and provides warmth and coziness on those cold winter days.
  1. Consider your roof: “The last thing anyone needs to discover is a roof leak after a heavy rain or January snow fall.” Napolitano explains. Fall is an ideal time to have an older home inspected by a professional. Like putting snow tires on before the snow flies, a simple inspection of the roof and attic insulation could help keep the warmth in and the water out.
  1. Fire up the fireplace: “Making your fireplace a focal point of the room is always a popular choice.” Napolitano explains. With a plethora of design options at your disposal, it is easier than ever to match the fireplace to the style and décor of a renovated home. Even if the fireplace is not functional, you can use candles to decorate it and give off warmth.
  1.  Warm with décor: Use knit, faux fur throws, and wool pillows to give your home a cozy feeling even on the coldest days. Thick and classically patterned rugs and thick heavy drapes will also help with insulation and alongside fresh greenery and a bright coat of paint will do wonders for the vibrancy of your home.
