Makeovers made easy!
Often the hardest step in any home-improvement or makeover project is the first one. Moving from inspiration to decision making can be hard – especially given all the amazing choices and options out there today! That’s why it’s important to start with the basics: identifying your personal style, and choosing trends best suited to that style.
The Home Depot has many interactive tools that can help you with both those tasks. (And once you’re ready to kick off your next project, you can find additional resources in-store, from The Home Depot’s expert designers and sales associates, to how-to books and magazines, to in-store DIY workshops.)
Read on for tips on how you can use The Home Depot’s online Design Centre to move from design inspiration to project execution.
