4 Cozy & Warm Winter Home Improvement Projects

The first of our winter home improvement projects for Madison area homeowners is to add or remodel your fireplace.Easy ways to stay comfortable and cozy all winter long.

When the weather outside is frightful, there are plenty of home improvement projects you can do to make your home delightful to live in. Get inspired with these four winter home improvement ideas to keep your home cozy and warm this time of the year.

1. Update the fireplace

Adding or remodeling your fireplace is a cozy and warm winter home improvement project that will add undeniable ambience to your space. Double-sided fireplaces, mantle updates, brick facing, and shelving additions help create an inviting space for snuggling up even when the fire is slowly dying.

2. Bring heat to your feet

Radiant heating systems allow you to set the temperature of your hard surface flooring to ensure that your feet stay warm all season long. Adjust the setting so your floors are warm in the mornings and evenings when outdoor temperatures dip. Typically installed in kitchens and baths, radiant heating takes cozy and warm to a luxurious level of comfort.

3. Seal up leaky drafts and improve insulation

The U.S. Department of Energy reports that 5 to 30 percent of a home’s energy is lost to chilly drafts. Stay warm and cozy this year by filling corners and gaps with fresh caulking and applying weather stripping in key areas. Check the insulation inside your walls too – if there’s room to spare, fill it with more insulation. Your investment will not only keep your home warm, it will save money on your energy bills in the long run.

4. Replace old doors and windows

If you dread rising winter bills more than going out in the snow, it might be time to replace those old leaky windows and drafty doors. Doing so can increase a home’s energy efficiency by 45 percent. For best results, have them installed by a professional company.

Do you have a cozy and warm winter home improvement idea of your own? Feel free to share it with us! Let us know what you envision and we'll give you a free estimate. And when there's simply no place to go, you'll be happy to let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
