Design Tips from the Experts

Our design professionals are here for advice on five ways to improve spending and living at home in a stylish way. It may cost a bit more to have energy efficiency in the beginning of your transition, but there are ongoing benefits including reduced heating and cooling expenses as well as benefits for the planet over time.

Tip #1: Windows allow natural light into your home, another energy efficiency must-have. A nice day requires 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 throughout your day. Double-insulated windows are also an energy and huge cost saver. They decrease outside noise, energy spent on maintaining home temperatures and are also a value booster when you look to sell your home.

Tip #2: Spaces without technology are the new black. In a world of instant connection, we seem to be 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 scrolling Facebook for hours, read a book or play a game with your loved ones.

Tip #3: Shop locally to boost local businesses while saving on shipping and the energy used to get that package to you. Another positive – the more local you shop, the better chance that 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 a bunch of people throughout warmer seasons. Even if you don’t have a yard, you can still grow flowers or small vegetables in your house. Complement your space and appetite with vibrant colored peppers, flowers and greens to accent as a design piece until they are ready to eat. Another great tip is to use rain water from a bucket or run-off pipe to water your plants indoors.
