Happy New Year one and all! 2015 has been a year of challenges, development and found us opportunities to create fabric solutions on a scale that has been exciting.
Virtually any high traffic entry like kitchen doors, back entrances and employee entrances can benefit from a mud room. In addition to creating a space outside of the entrance for shoes, coats, and other items, a mud room creates an area which protects a building from changes in temperature.
The winter months are a great time to consider minor repairs or replacement of your awnings, patio covers and outdoor screens. You’ll want that sun toasting the patios, porches and sides of your home or business anyway to cut down on interior heating costs. Rather than trying to let it go for another season and find that minor wear and tear is ripped by gusty winds in April or May (just when you need it!), look into it now.
Flexibility is the key to success in both the natural world and in business. In the winter when it’s cold, we put on a heavy coat. When the weather changes, we dress in layers to peel off or add on to adjust to the temperature. In business we plan a budget to accommodate to circumstances from one year to the next. The same concept can be applied with great success to our personal environments.
