Four home improvement ideas to consider before winter arrives


As the days are gradually getting shorter and temperatures outdoors have already started to drop, you may have begun preparing your home for the harsh winter weather ahead.

Thankfully, there are several things you can do to make your home more cosy and inviting. Here are four home improvement ideas you should seriously consider before winter arrives.

1. Invest in a front porch

If you’ve ever noticed a cool draft in your entranceway, a porch could be exactly what your home needs. Not only will it help to keep your hallway more insulated but it will also keep out any unwanted drafts throughout winter.

Providing your home with an extra layer of warmth isn’t the only benefit a porch has to offer. It also gives you added storage space and serves as the perfect place to keep your winter coats and boots from cluttering up the rest of your home!

2. Update your windows and doors

Harsh weather can take its toll on your home’s exterior over the years which means components such as your windows and doors may not be insulating your home as well as they once used to.

Replacing your old windows and doors can help to improve your home’s energy efficiency and reduce the cost of your energy bills, which could save you money in the long run!

3. Replace your conservatory roof

If your conservatory wasn’t a recent investment, you may find that come winter, it’s unbearably cold. If you find yourself avoiding your conservatory throughout the cooler months, it may be time to invest in a solid tiled roof.

Replacing your existing conservatory roof with a solid roof helps to make your living space more thermal efficient, so you can enjoy your conservatory all year round, even in winter.

4. Increase your living space

There’s no doubt you’ll probably be spending more time indoors as winter arrives, although doing so may make you realise how much space you’re lacking at home.

Investing in a conservatory, orangery or extension could offer you a whole host of possibilities and provide you with much needed extra room at home which the whole family can take advantage of.
