Dumpster Rental from Small Haul KC Makes Project Clean-Up a Snap
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced people to spend more time than usual in their homes this year, so it may come as no surprise that many homeowners have moved into “fix-it-up” mode. Thus far, much of the focus has been on outdoor projects as people looked for excuses to get out of the house and get a little exercise. Lawn and landscape improvement was top on the list of home improvement projects, and lawns in Kansas City have never looked better!
With the onset of colder weather, homeowners are retreating indoors and discovering that there’s plenty that needs sprucing up inside, as well. Homeowners are fixing up, repairing, remodeling, replacing, and generally improving their living conditions at an unprecedented rate in an effort to make their spaces more functional, comfortable, or attractive. All this construction and improvement creates exciting new spaces, but it also tends to create huge messes. That’s where Small Haul KC comes in.

Most Popular Indoor Projects
If you’re considering a home improvement project this winter, you’re in good company. Here’s a list of the top ten home improvement projects that people are working on this year.
#1. Kitchen remodel. The kitchen is the heart of the home. Whether that’s because tasty meals are prepared here, or its location makes it the most convenient place for everyone to congregate, there’s no denying that kitchens are high-traffic areas. A kitchen that’s dark and drab is a downer. But one that’s designed for efficiency, incorporating bright lighting, an efficient workflow, and updated fixtures, cabinets, and appliances is a place where everyone wants to hang out. Many Kansas City homeowners start in the kitchen when it’s time to remodel.
#2. Bathroom remodel. Second on the list is a bathroom remodel. Like the kitchen, bathrooms are used a lot, more so when everyone is home all day. It’s not surprising that changes are needed. Removing wallpaper, adding a fresh coat of paint, changing out fixtures, re-caulking the tub, and changing out light fixtures top the list when it comes to bathroom improvements. Replacing the shower enclosure takes the project to a whole other level.
#3. Basement remodel. Having everyone home all day may highlight another flaw that needs to be remedied. You may have outgrown your current living space. In that case, a basement remodel is in order. Basements are often used for storage, but they can be turned into beautiful living spaces with a little imagination and some hard work. Convert the area into an entertainment room, or turn it into your personal gym. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
#4. Attic bedroom conversion. Another way to gain more space is to convert part or all of the attic space to a bedroom and add a bath. Dormer windows and other roofline attributes make charming focal points in attic bedrooms. While you’re up there, check on your insulation. Adding more may help reduce your heating costs.
#5. Window replacement. Replacing windows is another job that can be done during the winter months, especially if you hire professionals to do it. Replacing old windows with new, energy-efficient models not only makes the house more comfortable, but it also helps reduce utility bills.
#6. Bonus room updates. What are you using your bonus room for these days? Could it be used more effectively for another purpose? It may be time to ask these questions and make changes accordingly. A little paint, new flooring, and better lighting may be all that’s needed to convert this room from a playroom to a home office.
#7. Living room updates. When most people think of living room updates, they think primarily of updating the decor. Often, living rooms aren’t used unless people are visiting, so putting a lot of money into a remodel doesn’t make sense for many homeowners. A simple update with paint and accessories usually does the trick, but a more extensive remodel may include new flooring and a new ceiling as well.
#8. Bedroom updates. With kids in and out of school these days, it’s possible that parents may hear some grumbling – especially from kids who have outgrown their bedroom’s decor from five years ago. Now is a great time to let the kids exercise their creativity by remodeling their bedrooms.
#9. Family room addition. If you’ve suddenly realized that your main living space isn’t large enough, it may be time to add a family room. This is one of the bigger home improvement projects, but it’s perfectly suited to the winter season. You’ll just have to spend time in other areas of the house until the new space is finished.
#10. Sun porch addition. Winter may seem like a strange time to be thinking of sun porches, but it’s a great time to add one. When spring comes, you’ll be glad you tackled this extensive project now, rather than waiting until warmer weather shows up.
Residential Dumpster Rental Makes the Job Easier
