Large windows and even walls of windows are popular choices in most homes today. One of the biggest drawbacks is the scorching summer heat that can quickly turn a well light space into a sizzling sauna. Installing the right kind of blinds can help you save much energy to cool your home, saving you valuable time and money.
Roman Shades – You can block out a lot of light with these shades especially if you get black-out fabric lining. What I love about these shades is that you can choose from a lot of different fabrics, and patterns to match your current décor or to bring some color to your space.
Honeycomb Shades: Installing honeycomb shades on a standard window can reduce the amount of heat entering a room from 22-76%! You can definitely give your air conditioner a break and save on your electricity bills this summer.
Two Blind Guys
Vertical Blinds – Great for large and tall windows since they easily allow you to control the amount of light filtering into a room. Choose blinds that are light colored to reflect the heat rather than absorb it.

A colored sink – Colored basins to add color to your bathroom is something more people are doing especially in small bathrooms. Beautiful stone, glass or copper sinks when hit with the proper lighting can add a colorful glow to your bathroom.
Faucet Upgrade – Upgrade your faucet to a sensor hands free faucet. These are really great especially if you have young children who typically can’t reach the handles to turn on the water. They also save on a lot of cleaning and having to shine and wipe down your faucet.
Switching up the cabinet knobs under your sink or even adding in mirrored tiles is another quick way to give your space an updated feel without spending too much time or money.
