Decorating projects during the winter

Decorating projects during the winter

You probably spend most of your time at home during the winter months, which means you see all the things you want changed in your home while also feeling like you can’t do it all because it is winter. But there are actually quite a few decorating and DIY projects you can do during the winter months. And what better time to get things done in the house than during the winter when you are stuck inside anyway? During the summer months, you’d probably much prefer to be out on adventures. Here are some decorating projects you can do before the warm weather hits hard.

Window Treatments

Winter is the perfect time to get your window treatments up to speed. Make sure you have blackout curtains or blinds in the rooms where you are sleeping, especially if you have little kids in the house. Getting those blackout curtains in place before the middle of summer when the sun is out all night will make bedtime much easier for you. If you choose heavy, weather resistant curtains, you’ll find that it helps keep the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer by blocking out the elements.

It makes for an especially good winter remodeling project if you are going to be sewing the curtains yourself because you have plenty of time to sit at the sewing machine and whip out some fantastic curtains that will fit your space perfectly.

Painting walls

If you have to take something outside to paint it, you probably either need to get a heater set up in your garage or you should wait a few more months til spring. However, if you are just going to paint walls, you can do that right now. You don’t even have to move all the furniture out of the room if you have space to move it to the center of the room instead. Make sure you get a big fan for circulating the air since you won’t be able to open windows to do it for you unless you want to freeze to death.

Radiators covers

Winter is the perfect time to get your baseboard heater covers and put them on your radiator heaters. It gets rid of the unsightly look of your heaters and is super easy to snap into place. This will help update the look of your space and is an easy DIY project you can do during the winter months.


Winter is the perfect time to go through your pictures and do decorating projects with them. Maybe you want to put together a collage wall, or maybe you just want to gather them up and finally put them into scrapbooks. You could even do projects where photos are put onto canvas or other objects around your home using modge podge. If you are stuck inside in the cold, you might as well be finally doing something with the hundreds of pictures you have stored on your laptop.

And the bigger bonus with this decorating project is that you get to spend time reviewing all the memories of your friends and family that you probably don’t get a chance to do very often.
