Home checklist for February

Happy February! Now that the first month of 2014 has already come and gone, it's time to make sure you're on the right track with your home resolutions. Take a look at some helpful tips to get your home ready for February:

  • Add pink and red to your color palette: February is all about candy hearts and chic shades of pink and red. To get your home in the Valentine's Day spirit, decorate with these feminine hues. For instance, try adding a bedazzled throw pillow to your couch or even opt for a red slip-cover to make a statement with your sofa. If bright furniture is too bold for your tastes, red or pink custom window coverings create a festive ambiance. 
  • Organize your closet: Spring will be here before you know it! Soon you'll have to sort through your closet to make room for sun dresses and flip flops. To ensure your spring cleaning process goes more smoothly next month, try to get organized in February. If you need help with custom home organization, be sure to contact Bazaar Home Decorating Center.
  • Restock cleaning supplies: "Get prepped for spring cleaning by sorting out your cleaning supplies," writes Houzz.com contributor Laura Gaskill. "Toss products you tried that didn't work and fill in gaps with fresh cleaning supplies and tools. Look over your dish towels, mop heads and microfiber cleaning rags, and replace them as needed."
