Maybe it’s just me, but once the cold weather hits and I’m forced inside I begin to get incredibly antsy. According to the top growing sites in the Home Improvement category, I’m probably not alone. As temperatures drop, it looks like more and more people are looking at how to occupy themselves in their own homes, including committing to repairs and perhaps one of three new decorative projects. Retailers specializing in decor would do well to pay attention to the trends influenced by weather by capitalizing on simple, easily accomplished ‘Do It Yourself’ (DIY) type projects and products.
And, for anyone like myself, check out the numerous DIY and decor boards on Pinterest for some great inspiration.
