January is a time for new beginnings and resolutions. That also makes it a great month to think about freshening up your home’s interior and getting more organized. Our designers have come up with some quick, simple and affordable home design and organizational projects to get you started:
Think outside the box and turn your laundry room into a multi-functional space where you could add a desk and computer, store everyday items in stylish, functional cabinetry, work on arts and crafts projects and of course take care of the laundry.
It’s easy to get fashionable with your walls by adding some wallpaper. You can choose from endless designs, patterns and eco-friendly textures like bamboo, grasscloth, micro-fiber, raffia and sea grass, and the application of these finishes is simple and straightforward. If you're not completely comfortable with wallpapering the whole room, try doing an accent wall or border.
Don’t keep your favorite photographs or artwork in boxes. There are plenty of creative ways to display your art and organize your family photos. You can spice up how you hang your photos and artwork by using ribbons and ropes and hanging them in unusual places or arrangements. A popular and affordable option is to create a gallery wall using several of the same size and style frames, or a frameless collage of photographs.
