  • Virtual room designers. Many websites dedicated to design and decor offer a number of tools to help you arrange your space, including Virtual Room Software. These allow you to make 2D and 3D floor plans from the ground up, enabling you to “move” furniture and decor easily without even having to lift a finger! Try this one for example http://www.homestyler.com/designer
  • Trend watchers. There are tons of websites and apps that help you stay abreast of current trends and new or upcoming home improvement ideas, colors, materials, etc. Here are a few great sites for such research: HomeTrends.com and Elle Decor.

At the end of the day, it’s always a good idea to consult with reputable companies that have a proven track record in your neighborhood.  Such companies usually offer valuable tips, resources, and other helpful information right on their website.  Danmer is proud to be one of these companies.

5 Home Hacks to save money for tax season

April 5, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 3.18.27 PMSo it’s tax season, and whether you’re expecting a refund or arranging to make payments, it’s a great idea to look for ways to cut expenses and save a few bucks in the upkeep of your home.  There are actually a number of ways to save just by making simple improvements around the house!  Here are five of the most cost effective:

  • Replace Your Air Filter.  To avoid higher energy bills, replace your air filters annually. Letting furnace air filters become clogged with dust and dirt can make it difficult for air to travel correctly, hence costing you more money to heat your home.  
  • Seal those heating ducts.  Poorly sealed connections can actually cost homes up to 20% of their heat!  Sealing up that heating ductwork can help spare a lot of shivers down the road and keep more money in your pocket.
  • “Low Flow” water fixtures.  “Low flow” is the way to go.  They’re relatively inexpensive, easy to install, and can cut your water consumption nearly in half, lowering your water bills and reducing water waste overall.  
  • Use Weather stripping.  Air can seep in and out during hot and cold weather, driving your energy bills up exponentially.  Weather stripping is a temporary remedy in preventing unwanted loss of cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter.
