Natural Living – Creative Ways to Bring Outdoor Beauty to Your Living Space this Summer

    (Provided by ABC Glass & Mirror, Inc. - Monday, May 18, 2015)

A growing number of families are embracing natural living choices that range from buying locally-grown organic vegetables to spending more time out of doors. However, even time spent inside the house can be enriched by nature. Try some of these ideas for bringing natural living inside your home this summer – 
Install window boxes and plant flowers in them. Open your curtains to enjoy seeing the flowers and open the windows to enjoy their fragrance inside the house.
Create a kitchen herb garden. Not only will the green plants brighten the atmosphere of the kitchen but the fresh herbs will add flavor to your dinners!
Make the outdoors more visible and reachable by adding more vinyl windows, a skylight, patio doors, or sidelites to one of your favorite rooms.
Choose natural materials like locally sourced wood or stone for your next remodeling project.
When practical, use open windows and ceiling fans to cool your home instead of the AC. You’ll love the fresh air and summer smells wafting through your living space….and you might save money on your energy bill, too.
Build a sunroom and include cushioned chairs, a sofa, a coffee table, a TV, and a DVD player. This way you can enjoy the outdoors even on movie nights and game nights!
Hire professionals to help you create a “living wall” – an interior vertical surface covered with growing plants and moss.
Be inspired by the colors of nature if you repaint. Consider choices like grass green, sky blue, and sunshine yellow for spaces that need cheering up.
