Four great facelifts for winter housing home design

January 26, 2013

New hardwood flooring is one of the most popular facelifts in homes of any age and from any design school - and it's no wonder. New flooring can really rejuvenate the entire look of a room or home! Anderson Floors has been providing clients with premier hardwood floors for over half a century, and their modern collections are the greatest they've ever produced. Take the Gnarly Plank line for example. Crafted from oak, these engineered boards aren't only one of the best looks in hardwood flooring, they're the best value. With careful distressing, and antique style random widths, this collection succeeds in mirroring the look of America's most historic homes.

While the cold weather makes landscaping or outdoor work a drag (and snow renders it basically impossible), winter may just be the perfect time to do some interior renovations. Think your home could use a facelift this season? These four options are quick, easy, and painless if you get the right team. Why not make good on those New Year's resolutions and bring out the best in your home design?

1. Flooring
New hardwood flooring is one of the most popular facelifts in homes of any age and from any design school - and it's no wonder. New flooring can really rejuvenate the entire look of a room or home! Anderson Floors has been providing clients with premier hardwood floors for over half a century, and their modern collections are the greatest they've ever produced. Take the Gnarly Plank line for example. Crafted from oak, these engineered boards aren't only one of the best looks in hardwood flooring, they're the best value. With careful distressing, and antique style random widths, this collection succeeds in mirroring the look of America's most historic homes. But just because your home has a classic feel doesn't mean that you need to be stuck with old fashioned problems. In fact, engineered boards like the ones used in the Gnarly Plank line allow for radiant heating underfoot, meaning you can go green (and save on the utility bill) with your new Anderson flooring.

2. A newly painted foyer
What's the first space that guests see when they enter your home? The foyer. Never have first impressions been so important, so giving your entryway a fresh coat of paint could be essential this winter. Don't wait for spring cleaning, pick a lively and stylish color and get working on those walls. Why not replace some of your foyer decor too, while you're at it?

3. Kitchen cabinets
While we tend to think of them as purely functional fixtures in the kitchen, our cabinets are actually making up a HUGE part of the interior design and room decor. This is why having excellent cabinetry that is both efficient and gorgeous is a big must. Explore what style you'd prefer - something contemporary and frameless, perhaps? Or maybe a traditional and rustic look is more to your liking.

4. Area rugs
Want a quick fix that'll rejuvenate any room in your home? Area rugs are great additions that can lend character and aesthetic depth to just about any space!
