Design Tip of the Month: Cool Winter Trends
Posted by: Genesis Floors
As temperatures dip lower, you’ll be spending more time indoors. Make your home a beautiful retreat for yourself, your family, and your friends with some of this season’s most popular decorating ideas.
Let It Snow – Transform your space into a sophisticated winter vignette with stark whites, a range of blues, and crystal and mirrored accents that reflect the snowy weather outside.
Layered Look – Like winter fashion, winter decorating is all about layers. Dress up any room with added warmth and style by layering area rugs, curtains, slipcovers and throws.
Warm Center – Hang an oversized mirror above your mantel to make the fireplace a focal point, and face your furniture toward the hearth to create a cozy spot for entertaining.
Natural Transitions – Embellish evergreens with lights for the holidays; then, show them off unadorned in arrangements that look beautiful throughout the rest of the season.
Floor Care Tips
Smart Snowy Season Solutions
While most of us look forward to the first snow of the season, we dread the damage that slush, dirt, road salt, and ice-melt chemicals can do to our floors. Make sure you use indoor and outdoor mats and remove shoes and boots at the door to avoid staining or warping hard surface floors. If you track something onto your carpet, act quickly using a detergent-based solution, towels, and white vinegar to prevent a permanent stain. Check out our website for more details, or visit your local Flooring America store to find approved cleaning products that make it easy to care for your floors.
