Design Tips from the Experts

Our design experts are here to offer five ways to improve spending and living at home in a trendy way. It may cost a bit more to have energy efficiency in the beginning of your transition, but there are continuing benefits including lower heating and cooling costs as well as benefits for earth over time.

Tip #1: Windows allow natural light into your home, another energy efficiency must-have. A nice day calls for a lot of windows that you can look out of and open up for fresh air. A simple tip is to dress up your windows with moveable curtains. This gives you a natural ‘light bulb’ that you can turn on and off through your day. Double-insulated windows are also an energy and big cost saver. They decrease outside noise, energy consumed on maintaining home temperatures and are also a value booster when you look to move out.

Tip #2: Spaces without technology are the new black. In a world of instant connection, we are finding ourselves less connected with our surroundings and the people we are with. Tech-less rooms encourage energy efficiency and help create important relationships with your family and friends. Instead of watching Netflix or browsing Facebook for hours, read a book or play a game with your loved ones.

Tip #3: Shop locally to support local businesses while saving on shipping and the energy used to get that package to you. Another benefit – the more local you shop, the more likely you will find individual and unique pieces for your space at home. Dare to be different and energy efficient.

Tip #4: Gardening is a pastime for many people in the warm weathered seasons. Even if you don’t have a yard, you can still plant flowers or small vegetables in your apartment. Complement your space and appetite with vibrant colored peppers, flowers and greens to accent as a design piece until they are ready to be picked. Another great tip is to gather rain water from a bucket or run-off pipe to water your plants indoors.

We can help you use design while remaining energy efficient. You will be happy with your home, and so will Mother Nature.
