Tech-Less Rooms

Design Tips from the Experts

Published on

Our design professionals are here to offer five ways to improve spending and living at home in a trendy way. It may cost a little more to have energy efficiency in the beginning of your transition, but there are continuing benefits including reduced heating and cooling expenses as well as benefits for the planet in the long run.

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. An easy tip is to dress up your windows with moveable curtains. This means you can have a natural ‘light bulb’ that you can turn on and off during 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 move out.

Tip #2: Tech-less rooms 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 can offer energy efficiency and help create lasting 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 benefit – 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 lot of people during warmer seasons. Even if you don’t have a yard, you can still grow flowers or small vegetables in your home. Complement your space and appetite with vibrant colored peppers, flowers and greens to act as a design piece until they are ready to be picked. Another great tip is to utilize rain water from a bucket or run-off pipe to water your plants indoors.
