Green housing solutions are the hottest trend in construction and Trilogy is helping our clients “green up” their lifestyles. From carefully selecting the light fixtures to upgrading the appliances they use, the following are some ways you can use green design to your advantage.
- More Windows and Skylights. This allows more light into the home and reduces the reliance on electric lights during the day.
- Repurposing. Old wood can be made to look new and stylish. A little elbow grease is all it takes to turn the old into fabulous furniture, flooring, or paneling.
- LEED Certified Appliances. From dishwashers to refrigerators, the higher the LEED rating, the more efficient the unit will operate. Not only do these appliances looks stylish, most will pay for themselves over their lifespan.
- Zoning. Zoning the home’s HVAC system gives you greater control over the interior climate. This allows you to “shut down” rooms when they’re not in use so that you’re not wasting energy throughout the year.
Trilogy can help you build the green housing solutions you desire. We encourage you to contact us for more information about this year’s trends and the features we recommend including in your plans.
