Lowes  is a “how to” library and projects page covers topics ranging from how to decorate to how to install tile floors and home maintenance tips. Design inspiration tools, powered by Houzz, lets you sort by type of room, design style, and metro area. Check out the “My Lowes” tools to set seasonal reminders, track purchases and organize your home improvement projects.
