We hope you had a very Happy New Year! To get your home in tip-top shape for 2014, start with a few simple tips guaranteed to make your winter go smoothly.
- Add a splash of color: If you live in a colder climate, the winter can be drab. To liven up the month of January, give your interior a colorful makeover. Try adding bright throw pillows, blanket and curtains and drapes to the mix.
- Adhere to your home design goals: "Want to get more organized this year or save up for a renovation? Then sit down on a blustery afternoon with a hot drink and a pile of inspiring home magazines and start plotting and planning! Once you've settled on a few goals, try writing specific to-dos and deadlines on your calendar to keep your eyes on the prize," writes Houzz.com contributor Laura Gaskill.
- Install the right window fashions: Aside from being stylish, curtains and drapes can help cut heating costs in the winter by blocking out the cold air. Browse our selection of draperies made from thicker fabrics, such as velvet.
- Store holiday decorations safely: Storing your ornaments properly before putting them away will ensure that they are in prime shape for the next holiday season. (You'll thank us next year!) Also, make sure that your lights are untangled, and wrap the string around a piece of cardboard to keep them intact.
