SOME THEMES IN THE HOME DESIGN WORLD THIS FALL
Flooring is a hot trend. It can definitely update your overall space and that’s why I love Tarkett’s ProGen Flooring. Its next generation performance handles whatever modern life throws at it. It’s Waterproof and looks like real wood, so you can use in any room of the home. It won’t warp or buckle under direct sunlight or extreme temperature changes, so it’s great for 3 season rooms or any non-HVAC controlled space. A dozen new designs will be hitting the market in January. For more infromation, visit residential.tarkett.com
Now, if you know me, you know I love affordable elegance, and Tarkett’s TruTex Luxury Sheet Flooring is it. Just introduced this summer, the unique textile backing dissipates moisture, so it resists mold and mildew plus it protects against rips, tears and gouges. Certified asthma and allergy friendly so you can breathe easy so it’s beautiful and healthy for those you love most! You can choose from 20 amazing designs inspired by stone, concrete, ceramic and natural wood. For more information, visit residential.tarkett.com
SOMETHING WE CAN DO TO ADD COMFORT AND STYLE TO THE HOME THIS FALL
I’m saying this fall breathe new life into your home by installing a Hunter fan in some unexpected places. Adding a brand-new Hunter fan to stuffier rooms like the laundry room can help circulate air and make your home more enjoyable, especially as you spend more time indoors getting those daily chores done. The installation of a new fan is an inexpensive upgrade that you can make to elevate your space while also staying on budget. When temperatures drop and the relatives come to visit, add a new fan to one of your busiest spaces, the kitchen, to make Thanksgiving cooking a comfortable family affair.

SOMETHING WE CAN DO TO INCORPORATE NEW TECH INTO YOUR HOME
If you’re looking for new tech you must check out GLAS by Johnson Controls, a new smart thermostat that is beautiful in form and function. A major differentiator of GLAS is that an Air Quality Monitor is included in the device. Let’s face it, we are all impacted by the quality of air around us. GLAS has integrated sensors to monitor indoor air quality and can intelligently adjust it for you. And if you are an allergy or asthma sufferer, you’ll love its ability to track pollen and air quality outdoors, too.
GLAS is also unique from other smart thermostats because it uses a translucent OLED touchscreen display to control its functions and it’s designed to beautifully blend in with a home’s environment. And when it comes to creating a seamless smart home experience, GLAS integrates with devices like Microsoft Cortana, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa.
