Over the period of the last decade or so, we have become increasingly aware of personal health and wellness. That awareness hasn't stopped with just ourselves and our family, but has expanded to our beloved pets and of course our homes. 

Home Wellness

Improving the health of our home can contribute to our own wellness. If home is where the heart is, it’s also where the health and wellness are. Identifying a few of the factors that can add to your home's wellness is a great step in ensuring our own level of wellness within the home.

Clearing the Air

Your home’s air quality affects your wellness directly; that’s the air you breathe every day! There are a number variables that can affect your home's air quality.

First off, change the filters on your heating system often, this will prevent the build up of irritants that recycle through the home. Consider removing shoes upon entering the home not only will it help keep your floors and carpets cleaner, but will prevent the spread of germs, chemicals, etc., that may be on the soles of shoes. Also the addition of floor mats on both the interior and outside your door will also cut down on what gets tracked in.

Using a vacuum with a HEPA filter will reduce pollen indoors, and will also cut down on dust mites that are often a common allergen. Using a microfiber dust cloth will partner well with the vacuum to collect those unwanted irritants. 

A way to reduce mold and mildew in the home is by using the bathroom ceiling fan for at least 20 minutes after every shower to reduce the moisture in the air. Keeping the homes humidity level below 50% will help prevent mold, mildew and musty odors.

Mental Wellness

Coming home from a long day of errands with your hands full of groceries, the mail, and whatever it's easy to just leave things to deal with later while placing your cell phone on the counter to charge, and throwing your jacket over the back of the chair. Sitting down, you look around and realize that it's truly hard to relax with everything staring back at you that needs attended too. Eliminating clutter that most of us are guilty of collecting would go a long way help mental wellbeing. Consider installing a hidden electronic charging station, or a hall tree or nice decorative wall hook system to hang jackets are just a couple of simple steps to take to reduce the visual clutter that will enable you to see those items you appreciate and make you feel better such as the art on the walls.

Food & Water

Add a filter to your tap and if you have a water dispensing refrigerator, changing the filter often will aid in removing chlorine and sediments from the water you use to drink and to cook. Also, eliminating the plastic containers that contain BPA (Bisphenol A) which can leach into your food and drink and has been linked to increase cancer risk.

The suggestions above is just the tip of the ice berg. Many resources are available to help increase the wellness of our homes. There are a number of products and companies that focus on measuring and aiding the environmental factors within our walls. A simple Google search around ‘home automation wellness systems’ will return no shortage of systems and solutions available to consumers.

The current decade has seen the growing trend of homeowners creating elaborate master bathroom oases in their custom homes. They are incorporating high end materials such granite counter tops, rain showers, towel warmers and double sinks. Residential design services company Associated Designs, who provides house plan designs to people across the country, has seen an increase to the amount of amenities people are willing to place into their master bathrooms. One such amenity that is on the rise as a must-have item for this room is the freestanding tub.

Freestanding Tubs, Master Suite, Brookhill 30-963


Freestanding tubs were a popular furnishing in the 19th century, as these tubs were considered a luxury that was durable yet high maintenance. During that time, cast iron tubs covered with porcelain and supported by claw feet were the norm as these heavy soaking tubs could be used as a standalone feature or also be equipped with shower fixtures. As the decades passed, people looked for bathtubs that were easier to maintain and cheaper for their budgets. Built-in, or drop-in, tubs became popular as they were space savers that could fit into smaller homes and apartment buildings. Built-in tubs had surrounds on the outside surface and sides that could be covered with tiles, granite, stone or laminates. These tubs could come in many different designs that complemented the decor element of the room, were not as heavy as freestanding tubs, required less maintenance, could be paired with shower fixtures and came in a wide range of prices that could fit into different budgets.


Yet for newer homes where people are looking for a place just to sit and soak in elegance and quiet, nothing beats the old soaking tubs. Freestanding tubs are making a comeback due to newer technologies and designs that make it more appealing than the regular built-in tubs. They now come in more modern designs with wide bases and shapes. What continues to make these tubs ideal is that they can sit anywhere in the bathroom and not be confined against the wall like a built-in version. For homes that have unique architectural aspects, freestanding tubs offer more options on where they can be placed, as they allow the homeowner to optimize their wall space with storage solutions as well as a separate shower unit, if desired.


Associated Designs has been working with homeowners seeking to have the finer luxuries in every part of their home, including the master bathroom. With their expert design staff, they can modify plans so that the master bathroom can become the spa that so many people desire after a hard day's work or hectic lifestyle. One of the many changes is to modify the room to offer the best amount of space that can incorporate freestanding tubs while still allowing a good flow to the room.


Freestanding tubs come in many different materials and finishes now, although people still love the nostalgic look of the old cast-iron tubs with the claw feet. There is now wood, enamel and copper for people who want something with a more contemporary feel to it. Each type of material and finish will have its own price tag, benefits and disadvantages as homeowners are encouraged to price shop for the best deals. While cast iron has been the go-to type of freestanding tub for heat retention, it can be heavy for the floor that it will be placed on while fiberglass is a cheaper alternative and comes in many styles but can easily scratch and crack.


With today’s technology, homeowners don't have to be stuck with the same style of tub if their decor preferences change. In the past many people strayed away from freestanding tubs and instead purchased built-ins because it was easier to change the surround of the built-in when switching to a different design style. A common misconception was to change the look of a freestanding tub you would have to buy a completely new tub. Yet current technologies have advanced so all a homeowner needs to do is hire a professional to refinish their tub with a coating of acrylic urethane resin.


Getting a freestanding tub isn't reserved for the rich and famous anymore. When it comes to designing a new home or renovating an existing one, freestanding tubs have become the right choice for a master bathroom where a homeowner desires to have a spa-like oasis where they can relax and unwind. These soaking tubs bring a host of benefits that can't be ignored. With the expert staff from Associated Designs, people can picture how the room will look from the blueprint stage, through modifying the plans to the construction of their home so that it fully uses the space that is available. The freestanding tub fits perfectly in the room design to make the homeowner excited to have a bit of peace and tranquility when relaxing in the warm waters.

Featured House Plan of the Week, Cottage Home Plan, Lyndon 30-769

Go through any older section of town in any city and you’ll most likely see cozy cottages that look a lot like the Lyndon. Houses built in the early 1900s had fewer windows, and the interiors lacked the sense of openness contemporary families of today have come to appreciate.

The Lyndon combines a nostalgic exterior with a bright and open interior. The compact size is nice for small families, empty nesters, and those seeking to minimize their carbon footprint. The railed porch that spans across front facade is ideal for relaxing, reading, and enjoying the view. The recessed deck on the upper level offers more privacy.

The main entrance opens off of a deck that runs along the left side. The deck offers direct access to both the front porch and an utility room near the rear. 

An L-shaped kitchen is in one corner of the great room. A raised eating bar bounds this space. Perched on stools, family and friends can chat with the cook or get help with finishing homework before dinner.

Tall, slender atrium doors and windows brighten the eating nook that nestles into the front corner, right next to an identical set that also faces the street. More light flows into the great room through two similar windows along the right exterior wall. The stairway at the rear of the room leads to a deep unfinished bonus room with wide windows at both ends.

Two bedrooms and two bathrooms fill out the rear of the home.

One of the best parts of the summer season is the long, warm days during which you can enjoy your beautiful outdoor living spaces. It seems only a decade or so ago we emerged only for barbecues and special occasions, we now find ourselves outside for common meals with or without company. We have fallen in love with a light summer meal 'al fresco' style. 

Al Fresco Dining

 

You’ve spent time and money to cultivate your outdoor living space to discover that you truly love relaxing and dining there. As the summer season begins to wind down each year as the days get a little shorter and the evenings a little cooler, sadly the end of the 'al fresco' season draws closer. Don’t cheat yourself of the opportunity to take full advantage of your time there by retreating inside before you need to. Instead, consider adding a warm, comfortable outdoor fire pit or fireplace and enjoy more of your time in the place you’d rather be.

An inexpensive and simple option to keep you comfortable, cozy and warm as is to purchase a portable metal fire pit, available at most home improvement stores for around $200. If your outdoor area is on the smaller side, this is a great option as you can remove it when needed to create more room for daytime entertaining.

Slightly more involved, the in-ground fire pit is another option. Whether you choose a basic DIY project or hire a contractor to design and build something more intricate, an in-ground fire pit can be as big or small as your budget and ambition allow.

Above-ground fireplaces, often integrated as part of larger outdoor living spaces, provide great evening warmth and comfort but also allow for a traditional chimney to vent the smoke away from everyone there to enjoy the outdoors. As with in-ground fire pits, above-ground fireplaces can become as detailed and expensive as you choose, ranging from simple, folksy designs to elaborate stone work of significant height. Some outdoor fireplaces integrate pizza, or bread ovens into the construction, adding a new dynamic to entertaining guests.

The sky is the limit. Whether keeping it as simple as a portable fire pit or going bigger by adding something more elaborate to your 'al fresco' spaces will integrate some warmth into the cool evenings that will be upon you before you’re ready.

Getting a fresh look to your home doesn't have to put a stress to your finances. Here are the 8 tips for you to decorate on a budget so that you can get the room looking absolutely perfect as it captures your unique design tastes.

Decorating on a Budget, Interior Design, Home Decor

1: Reuse and Repurpose Old Items

Often you think that decorating requires adding new furniture and items to the room. Yet you can get an entirely new look reusing the old items you have and just changing the way that they look or giving them a new function in the room. You can turn an old bedroom vanity into a home office desk by removing the mirror and refinishing or painting the surface. Sofas can quickly get a makeover with colorful slipcovers that can tie the different colors and themes in the room together.

2: Paint with Flair

Painting is perhaps one of the easiest do-it-yourself projects that you can tackle on your own and can instantly change the style of a room. You don't have to stick with a solid color over the wall, Use painter's tape to create unique patterns and designs that add depth to the wall. Also, you can easily fix mistakes along the drywall by using painting techniques so people cannot see uneven drywall or drywall screws that weren't covered and sanded properly.

3: Shop Smartly

Decorating on a budget usually means that you can't go to the more expensive interior design stores in your area. Yet that doesn't mean you can have the items that will work perfectly in the room. Instead, focus on shopping at secondhand and consignment shops that have great deals on used items. You can also wait for deals and discounts at the expensive shops. Another way to get items at a steal is to ask to purchase floor models, or look for items being sold as-is because they might have slight damage that won't affect their functionality.

4: Don't Let Flaws Affect Your Design Purchases

Again, never let minor flaws affect the way you view the items you want to purchase. Often, you can take it home and fix the item yourself with a little time and effort. Don't pass by the chance of using the Internet to help you fix minor flaws on the cheap so you have a great item that enhances the feel of your room.

5: Add Architectural Elements

If you are looking to change the physical look of the walls of the room, you can add a bit of dimension to the space. Wainscoting and molding add depth that can instantly change the look without having to tear down walls or affect the wall supports of your home. You can normally tackle this project on your own in about 3 days from start to finish depending on the amount of molding you are adding to the walls.

6: Accessories Can Make a Difference

It is incredible how accessories can often be overlooked in designing a room. You can go as simple as placing a vase filled with colorful fruit or bright ball ornaments to a table to finding vintage small statues at a yard sale that can be used as bookends. Even plants can give you design ideas and color to perk up the mood of a space.

7: Let Fabrics Guide Your Decor

Fabrics can be placed in so many areas of the room and instantly add pizzazz. Cover chairs and sofas with fabric. Create your own curtain panels and pillow cases. You can also hang fabric along the ceiling.

8: Change Up the Flooring

Flooring can get dirty, scratched and stained as it can seriously impact the appearance of the room. You can change the flooring by sanding, painting, staining or adding carpet and tile. You will have to base the changes on your budget, yet you can get great flooring products without breaking the budget.

Focusing on the growing needs of homeowners to have spacious houses with plenty of room for their possessions, residential design services company Associated Designs, Inc. is giving homeowners the ideal bedroom and master bedroom storage solutions to eliminate the clutter. Their customizable floor plans give more permanent solutions for an organized bedroom versus the temporary advice offered by mainstream media that tells people to start cutting back on what they own.

Clutter Free Bedrooms, Home Trends Report

There has been a growing trend in the local and national media to give homeowners storage advice that basically tells them to donate or toss away their things to have a more organized space. While it sounds like commonsense in many instances, we need to avoid coming across as chastising people for buying the items that they want and oftentimes need to create a relaxing lifestyle for themselves. We assume that homeowners have too many possessions and this situation is leading to cluttered bedrooms. The problem may actually be the bedroom itself.

Bedroom sizes can be deceptive for people who are purchasing existing homes. When they are looking at a completely empty room, they think it is spacious enough for their needs as they try to imagine all their items fitting in the space. Yet when they get their main furnishings of a bed, dresser and standing closet in the room, the person sees just how much room is taken up with these large pieces of furniture. Even with just having a few clothes on the floor and knickknacks on the dresser the room looks and feels cluttered.

Yet people who are getting homes built from the ground up are experiencing these same issues. While they have more flexibility with creating large storage options such as built-in cabinets, walk-in closets and shelves, they are still underestimating the amount of room that they need. These people are also purchasing floor plans without knowing that the plans can be modified to offer ways to keep a bedroom more organized.

Associated Designs offers pre-designed and customized home designs for people building their first or second homes. For people who are struggling with bedroom storage woes, these plans are offering them the right amount of spacing for their present and future needs in case their family grows. People can specify the square footage and number of bedrooms then speak with the design staff to get modifications and advice so they have the bedrooms that offer plenty of storage solutions.

The question about how to incorporate more storage to clear out the bedroom clutter should start at the beginning of the design phase, not at the end. Before one board is nailed in place, a person should ask themselves if the house has enough space for the number of people who will be living in the home now and in the future. Then they should decide the types of storage that would work for them.

The design staff at Associated Designs also considers other factors when modifying house plans with organizational solutions. They realize there are more factors involved with just building a walk-in closet or other built-in solutions into the bedroom. They also have to consider the structural stability and mechanical systems that must be run through the home. Most homeowners think that they can just knock down any wall. The person forgets that water pipes, electrical lines and duct work will run through certain walls. Yet with having floor plans customized during the sketching phase, these issues can be addressed early and organizational solutions can be incorporated so the home is functional and beautiful for its occupants.

When it comes to clearing out the clutter, people have to think beyond the temporary solutions. Yes, they can get rid of the things they don't need, donate unused furniture, and place extra clothing into storage containers. Yet placing things into storage containers stowed away into the corners of the room only leads to using up more space as the containers can detract from the décor and theme in the bedroom. Sitting down and truly thinking about how to create a storage solution that works with the bedroom is ideal whether you are getting a custom home built or redesigning an existing home.

Associated Designs believes that by allowing for customizable solutions for bedrooms, people will find an option that works best for their lifestyle to keep a handle on their bedroom clutter. People can have the beautiful master bedroom, children's bedroom or guest room in the decor style they desire without compromising space or functionality. In addition, people can save more money in the end as they won't have to look for additional organization and storage solutions that can put a dent in their wallets. With the storage options already incorporated into the room, people will be able to focus on their lives and not on the clutter.

This advice also applies to people who live in existing homes. Instead of running to the store and buying as many storage containers as the person can find, they should sit down and consider what they can do to change the bedroom design to optimize the room for their needs. They may have to consider a few changes to the existing closets to make them more functional, or renovating their storage solutions. Whatever the person decides, they should look toward creating permanent solutions and avoid the temporary ones that end up complicating their lives further. Skip out on the containers that end up being accessed day to day and instead consider reorganizing the room to be functional with storage solutions that allow for growth throughout the life of the home.

When it comes to remodeling a kitchen, bathroom or other space in a home, you may not know where to start. Should you focus on updating old appliances and fixtures, or tackling the flooring in the rooms? Sometimes, the interior of a room will look mismatched because you only focused on one element and then ran out of money to complete the other aspects, mixing the old and new features in a way that make the remodel look unfinished and messy.

Before tackling any size remodeling project, you need to figure out what exactly you want to do with the remodel based on your preferences and budget, and how you can reach this goal while tying all the design themes together so you are satisfied with the end result. Making a big impression in a room doesn't require you to throw tons of money into the project. It just requires you to stay focused on what look you want to achieve. Here are 4 pieces of advice when you are seeking to remodel your space.

Plan it out with all the people who need to be involved

Often a home remodel goes awry because all the people who needed to be involved with the planning out of the space were not present. Include the designer, contractor and those people who will make the decisions to sit down to go over the plans and to make suggestions. You will gain insights in turning the space into the perfect room when all the ideas are on the table. Just keep in mind that you have the final decision on what to change.

It doesn't take much to change the design aspects of a room

While people think they have to get extravagant to change the appearance of a room, the fact is that it might only take a few new elements that can bring the design together. Changing out the knobs, updating fixtures, increasing the lighting or switching out old appliances are all small tasks that can be taken on that can have a big impression to the room.

Always consider space during the remodel

Remember that if you want to increase the space in one room, you will have to take that space from a different room if you are not adding on an addition. So increasing the amount of kitchen space will mean that you will have to take the space away from the dining room or living room, making those spaces smaller. By enlarging a room, it can open up the area and make a big improvement as you can add more design aspects that you may not have considered.

Understand what the function of the room is before remodeling it

Perhaps the best way to make a big impression with the room is to decide what the room will be used for and then sticking with that design. Many rooms can look mismatched because they are multipurpose spaces such as a home office, gym room, and entertainment room combined into one. If you can pick one type of function for the room and then focus the design on that function, you will have a more clean and uniform look. If the room has to have several functions, then make certain areas focus on that particular function instead of having a messy, mixed-up design.

Prairie Style House Plan, Home Plan, Featured House Plan of the Week, Denver 30-952

The Denver’s footprint is a mere 50 feet wide, and fits neatly on a narrow building lot. That doesn’t mean it feels the least bit cramped. This Prairie-style home plan has nearly 2200 square feet of living space.

A lot of that space is in the comfortably large and open room at the rear, where the living room, dining room and kitchen flow together. Natural light flows in through wide windows in the living and dining rooms, plus a smaller window at the kitchen sink.

A gas fireplace sits into a corner by the rear windows. Across the room, an atrium door opens onto a covered patio that could be screened if desired.

An eating bar rims the cooktop island that provides partial separation between the kitchen and the gathering space. Cooks can serve soups, snacks and other light meals to family and/or friends ranged along the eating bar, while keeping an eye on activities inside and out. A large step-in pantry fills one corner of the kitchen.

Double doors in the foyer open into a room that could be a den or fourth bedroom. Its location just inside the front door is also ideal for a home office.

Bedrooms, utilities, and bathrooms fill the right side. The utility room links with the two-car garage. It provides a comfortable passage to the inside for unloading groceries and other supplies.

A storage closet lines the hallway to the owners’ suite, which features an exceptionally deep walk-in closet, along with a two-section bathroom with a double vanity.
