Renovations and Improvements in Home this Winter

The leaves are changing colour, the days are getting shorter, and the temperature is getting colder, which can only mean one thing – autumn is right around the corner! Fall is often a time of transformation and fresh starts, and your home is no different. Now that the jam-packed summer days of vacations, festivals, and barbecues have come to an end, it is the perfect time to start thinking about improvements and renovations you want to make to your home.

Here are a few reasons why fall can be a great time to transform your living space:

You have time to focus on your project

It can be hard to focus on a home renovation when you’re in the midst of summer vacations. This is especially true if you have kids at home or guests visiting (no one likes having off-limits bathrooms or bedrooms when you’ve got a full house!). With the kids back in school, and your schedule being less hectic, fall is the perfect time to get started on that home reno you have been thinking about.

Winter is coming

In Alberta, winter tends to happen sooner rather than later. It is essential to ensure your house is ready so that you can enjoy cozy nights in. Do you need to replace any windows? Improve your insulation? Fix your roof? There’s no time like the present to make sure you aren’t going to run into issues once the temperatures start to drop below freezing. Additionally, creating energy efficient improvements to your home could save you money on your utility bill and potentially score you a rebate through Alberta’s energy efficiency program.

You can save money

New models on appliances are often released in the fall, which means old models usually go on sale. It is also a great time to look for off-season discounts on things such as air conditioning units or repairs, and patio furniture. Looking for more savings? Keep your eye on the Black Friday deals in November on large appliances and electronics.

Home shows are happening

Many cities will have a fall home show which is an excellent opportunity to get inspired and meet exhibitors who can help with your project. Calgary’s 2018 Fall Home Show is taking place on September 20 – 23, 2018.
