Homes that have been well designed through innovative, passive solar design principles not only reduce your carbon footprint but also save you money through reducing your running costs which in most cases will increase the resale value of your home.
Let’s dispel the myth that the Design Team will only be interested in imposing only their ideas and style to the project. A professional Design Team will be applying their skill set to understand and follow your brief so be prepared to voice your views and ideas.
Some categories would also randomly disappear. A look under home entertainment did not offer anything resembling at TV I could stick into the room for a visual, even if it wasn’t my exact model. And I couldn’t find a single art piece to place on the wall to create any kind of interest in the room.
While we were flexible about furniture choices, we did have some pieces we wanted to keep, like the gray / wood armchair I dragged home through the streets of Brooklyn on my own in the middle of August. There was no way this thing’s going on Craigslist just yet.
You see, the way we live continues to change…. housing is not just about a roof over your head…. it’s about making a statement, it about lifestyle.
Even before the design process begins, your Design Team can provide insight. This can include site selection and providing you with the feasibility and peace of mind of what you can and can’t do.
