New Year, New Home: 4 Ways to Upgrade Your Home This Winter

These Simple Updates Make Your Home Feel New for the New Year

December 8, 2021

It may be hard to bid farewell to stockings, twinkle lights and trees, but the New Year provides a chance to revitalize your home in many ways. A fresh coat of paint, new interior design, refurbished cabinets, or an updated garage system can help you discover a new home, and all can be done even in the unpredictable winter months of Colorado. While a large project may be overwhelming after the fulfillment of the holidays, these following projects can be done in just 3-5 days and have little impact on your day-to-day living. We've even included some of our favorite local Denver-based companies and professionals who can help with the job.

In a climate where the stress of the pandemic has yet to dim, color experts have found that homeowners and designers are turning to shades of green to help make their spaces feel more grounded and secure. Sherwin-Williams found their 2022 inspiration in Evergreen Fog (SW 9130), a versatile and calming hue of green-meets-gray, with a bit of blue. The color pairs well with a nature-inspired palette of soft-whites, beiges and browns.

This stunning and flexible green can be used to freshen up a room or refurbish kitchen cabinets. Highlands Ranch, Colorado-based painting company, Right Touch Painting ( offers not only dedicated interior and kitchen cabinet teams but a colorist to assist you in determining if paint colors such as Evergreen Fog compliment your home.

If you are anything like us, the house can feel a bit empty once the holidays are packed away and in some cases, you may have even forgotten where things belonged just a month or so ago. While things are still unsettled, there is no better time to consider changing your layout of furniture and decor! Littleton, Colorado-based interior designer Kayla ( provides a myriad of services that include space planning, furniture layout, furniture and fixtures selection and window treatments to name a few. With the change of a one or two pieces of furniture or fixtures, a whole new style can emerge. 

Once you’ve filled all the boxes of holiday cheer, and you take them out to your garage to store for another year - you may realize that there is room for improvement in this often-ignored part of your home. Custom Garage Solutions, locally owned and operated in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, ( is passionate about harnessing the full potential of garages. They believe that there are so many things that you can do with a clean, well-organized and professionally finished garage and provide complete custom garage makeovers to homes in the Denver area via industrial floor coatings, efficient garage cabinetry and organization, and anything else you can dream up. The garage the last place you see of your home before you leave and the first you see again upon entering. An organized and purposeful garage can not only help your garage to see its fullest potential, but can maximize the space inside of your entire home.

For a quick improvement in both the aesthetics of your home but also numerous other benefits, adding a few house plants can work wonders. Houseplants provide greenery to your home, but also improve breathability in your home, purify the air and remove toxins and release water and humidity in the air. We recently wrote about the benefits of plants and suggestions for plants to add which work well in our Colorado climate. Picking the spaces where you spend the most amount of time in your home and adding a couple well-placed plants will quite literally add life to your home.

A New Year provides us all with a fresh start and your home is no different. As you clean, pack and prepare for the year ahead keep these simple updates in mind to make the most of your home in 2022.
