Tech-Less Rooms

Design Tips from the Experts

Published on

Our design experts are here for advice on 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 continuous benefits including reduced heating and cooling expenses as well as benefits for the environment over time.

Tip #1: Windows allow natural light into your home, another energy efficiency must-have. A nice day should have 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 big cost saver. They turn down outside noise, energy used on maintaining home temperatures and are also a value booster when you look to move away.

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 lasting 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 plus – 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 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 house. Complement your space and appetite with vibrant colored peppers, flowers and greens to be used as a design piece until they are ready to eat. Another great tip is to utilize rain water from a bucket or run-off pipe to water your plants indoors.
