Holiday Renovations - Not As Unbelievable As It May Sound!
It’s hard to believe that the holidays are almost here. After all, 2021 has been quite a roller coaster ride! From the pandemic to drought to forest fires to unprecedented flooding, we’ve endured it all. In just a few short days, the winter solstice will be upon us and the days will begin to lengthen as we head towards spring. From now until mid-January there will be a flurry of office parties, family celebrations, and friends get-togethers. And believe it or not, there is still time to get a fresh coat of paint on the walls or some carpentry work done before your home becomes a beehive of activity.
As your Vancouver-based residential and commercial painting and contracting company here are a few projects that we’d be delighted to discuss with you.
Modernize Your Kitchen Backsplash
Your kitchen is bound to be the control center during the holidays. Friends and family won’t be able to keep themselves from being enticed by the aromas drifting from the oven and circulating throughout the house. An updated backsplash made from natural or engineered stone, tile, or glass will have your kitchen looking like an entirely new room!
You Don’t Have To Replace The Cabinets!
If your budget or time constraints don’t permit you to replace your cabinets, a fresh coat of paint can work wonders. Combine the paint job with new cabinet hardware and some modern light fixtures, with a deep clean of your appliances and you’ll wonder if you’ve walked onto a Top Chef Canada set!
How Does A New Buffet Table Sound?
Finding space on holiday tables groaning under the weight of casserole dishes, veggie plates, dessert trays, and punch bowls is all too often a challenge. Consider having us build an elegant and functional buffet table.
A Bar Or Beverage Area Makes A Great Addition
Having a separate bar/beverage area is not only a wonderful idea because it gives your guests the freedom to serve themselves, but it also keeps folks out of the kitchen while you are putting together holiday meals. Less traffic in the kitchen helps to make food preparation so much easier!
New Flooring Would Be Perfect
Installing new flooring just before the holidays isn’t nearly as wild as it sounds. We have just the crew to put down tile or hardwood flooring that will make a room look like a million dollars.
Bathrooms Are Great Spaces To Spruce Up
Bathrooms are typically smaller rooms and that makes them ideal spaces to quickly transform. Updated faucets, light fixtures, mirrors, and a shower curtain are relatively inexpensive and make your entire bathroom seem brand new.
What Can You Do With Unused Spaces?
One of the challenges of hosting friends and family for the holidays is finding comfortable spots for everyone to sleep. Don’t reach for those tired old air mattresses just yet! Consider having benches built into unused spaces that can serve as snug and comfortable spots for younger members of the family. They can sleep here and have some quiet time when all the activity is a little too overwhelming. Lay a comfortable mattress on the bench, tack up soft curtains and add a string of fairy lights, and children will be drawn to the little areas designed just for them!
Fresh Coat Of Paint In The Entryway Makes A Great First Impression
Sprucing up your entryway with some paint creates a warm welcoming feeling for your guests. Add a new closet organizer and some hallway cubbies for boots and shoes and your entryway will remain neat, organized, and clutter-free.
