St Patrickâ€™s Day is an enhancement charmâ€“ a day to begin transforming winterâ€™s dreams into summerâ€™s magic.â€ – Adrienne Cook
Most building materials have a green alternative, like recycled denim insulation, bark siding, cork flooring, recycled metal roofing, reclaimed wood, and so much more. The recycled look might not be for everyone, but there are so many options from modern to rustic that will surely fit your style and satisfy your senses. Not only is eco-friendly materials a growing trend, designing your home more efficiently is in high demand. Remember, if you have any appliances, you can protect these as well as your home’s systems with a USA Home Warranty.
Shorter plumbing runs make hot water delivery more efficient. Skylights can help reduce energy use. Even the location of your appliances matter. For example, a significant amount of energy can be saved by placing the refrigerator out of direct sunlight and away from heat-generating appliances.
Whether youâ€™re building a new home or remodeling the one you have, there are so many new ideas and insights to consider that it is often overwhelming! Like the new Quartz countertops that now come in beautiful, totally unique designs. And like the new (GE) graphite “slate” finish for appliances that is fingerprint and scratch resistant with a high-end, earthy tone that separates you from your neighbors and looks incredible with white cabinetry.
In addition to the sleek design, the appliances are loaded with smart controls, including Wi-Fi and a kitchen concierge service that notifies you if something goes wrong with your appliance, and an atmospheric water generator that produces up to 5 gallons of purified water, hot or cold, from the air! Like magic, right?
