This site covers a wide range of 'how-to' topics from interior home improvement and remodelling, to painting, electrical and lighting; as well as a comprehensive online store for endless practical items for the home, office, car, or even for your pet!

homes2gardens >>

homes2gardens offers an ever expanding directory covering home decor, gardening, hobbies and much more, but is now somewhat dated in its design and is rather cluttered with advertising... That said, it is one of few UK directory sites.

The last time we checked, this site was being given a revamp and was temporarily offline, however lets hope the new site is a success. Previously the site was both a useful directory of links to relevant websites covering interior design and crafts, and a source of useful advice tips and feature articles for styling your home.

There's online shopping, interesting features and lots of inspiration through photo galleries.

This is an inspiring and insightful online magazine providing a wide range of interesting feature articles and other resources. The bonus is that House Beautiful also offers a number of handy interactive tools  including Interactive Windows. This tool allows you to 'mix and match' window treatments such as curtains, blinds, shades, valances and swags, or to select standalone treatments to view separately. Unfortunately, the last time we checked the tool did not allow you to change the colours of fabrics displayed.
