Posted on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 at 9:17:07 PM
The holiday season is right around the corner, and if you're planning on renovating your home before the hordes of family members and friends come over, now is the time to start. Use home improvement financing to fund those renovation projects that will improve your house's décor and impress guests.
Here are three home-improvement projects to consider:
1. New fireplace mantel. The winter and fall evoke images of snuggling up to someone close by the fire. Revamp the mantel surrounding your fireplace to modernize the look of a room for fall.
2. Butler's pantry. In older homes, the butler's pantry played a crucial role in allowing servers and families to bring food to and from the main dining room and the kitchen. As you prepare to entertain guests for the holiday season, consider adding this unique storage option to your home's design.
3. Breakfast nook. A cozy, yet functional space to eat during the long winter days can help create a warm and happy feeling in a home. Often people will congregate to these spaces, whether they are eating or not.
