Making homes healthy and safe
Wayne Nussbickel, President of N&S Supply notes that many homeowners are looking for ways to make their homes healthier and safer. As he explains, “Smart products available for your kitchen or bathroom include touchless faucets that turn on and off with the wave of a hand; self-cleaning toilets; spalet seats with cleansing features; steam showers that promote wellness and relaxation; water filtration systems – either point-of-use or whole house – that provide safe, clean water. Similarly, air purifiers and ventilation products can help dilute the presence of indoor air pollutants. Humidifiers add humidity and dehumidifiers remove humidity, playing an important role in maintaining proper indoor air quality. Whole house UV lights help sterilize contaminants like mold, germs, and viruses in the air and on surfaces. Improving your home’s livability with cleaner air, safer water, and contactless fixtures and faucets improves the resale value of your home and makes it a safer and healthier place to live. Ultimately, a safe and clean house creates a happy home! ”

Creating and following your vision
Planning ahead on your renovation requires asking yourself many questions. “When working on your dream kitchen or bath, be prepared to answer questions,” advises Eileen Wozniak, Kitchen and Bath Designer for Page Lumber, Millwork & Building Supplies. “For instance, when you close your eyes, what does your dream kitchen or bath look like? What bugs you most about your current space? How do you use your kitchen? Do you and your kids rush through, or do you spend dedicated time cooking or baking together? What is your kitchen’s personality? Flashy? Practical? Budget conscious? (Don’t be afraid to share your budget.) The more information you provide, the better your kitchen design will be. Be honest about your weaknesses. Do you easily get disorganized? Are you an out-of-sight, out-of-mind person? Anyone can sell you boxes on the wall. The magic happens when you dig deep. There are tools to help like Houzz, Instagram, and Pinterest. Use them! Collect your ideas and BRING THEM! ”

Powering-up your living space? You’ve got options when it comes to paying for that project. Home Equity Loans and Lines of Credit are common choices. With either, you’ll likely find lower interest rates since the loan is secured by your home. If you’re not comfortable putting your home’s equity on the line, though, you can consider a personal loan. You may be limited in how much you can borrow since these are unsecured loans. Credit cards – while an option – are generally a less-favorable one because of their higher interest rates. Talk to your financial institution about what options are available – and right – for you.
