Home Renovations To Try This Winter

The chilly season is here, and you may have thought of a few things that you would like to change around your home, perhaps in general, or to specifically accommodate for the colder months.

As home renovation experts on the Gold Coast here are a few handyman services and handy ideas for your winter home renovations.

Better Lighting

As the sun goes down earlier each day, you may find yourself switching lights on earlier and leaving them on for longer. Winter, in general, does not provide as much light as the Summer months do. So is your lighting up to scratch?

Make sure that your lighting is cheery and replace any light fixtures that are too dull or too bright. Now may also be an opportune time to replace your conventional bulbs with eco-friendly ones. Not only will you be doing your part for the environment, but you’ll also be saving yourself money on your electrical bills!


The Gold Coast is known for its dry winters, which makes this the perfect time to give your walls a new coat of paint. Take advantage of the dryer conditions to paint any walls around the house that are looking a little shabby, and they’ll dry in no time.

Cosy Carpeting

Are you feeling the chill underfoot? Sometimes fluffy socks just don’t cut it during a cold winter. Maybe your bedroom (or other rooms in the house) could do with a little extra insulation? Carpets could be the answer. Also if your current carpet is looking a little threadbare, now could be the perfect time to replace it!
