Starting work on your outdoor entertaining area or pool might be the last thing on your mind right now, but renovating in winter can bring you endless summer memories. Warm up with these home improvement tips:

1. Scheduling and rates

Depending on where you live and the kind of project, renovating during the off season can mean cheaper supplies and competitive contractor rates. With the lull in demand, builders may have more flexible schedules too, so you can get started on your project sooner.

2. Indoor projects

There are plenty of indoor based projects that you can tackle during winter to make a difference to the look and feel of your home.

A fresh coat of paint or updating your lighting options can make a big difference to the look and feel of your home. Or you might like to think about improving a space the whole family spends a lot of time in, like the kitchen or living room.

3. Outdoor projects

You'll want to make the most of the warmer months, so it makes sense to get your outdoor renovations sorted now. Even a simple deck or landscaping can add value to your home.

4. DIY repairs

If you want to start off with some smaller DIY projects, consider tidying up the 'nuts and bolts' of your home. Things like regrouting wet areas, replacing washers and taps, and painting touch-ups provide instant improvements.
