Energy Efficiency

Cut costs and use less energy by investing in energy efficiency. Small changes such as energy efficient appliances can go a long way, but you can take it a step further and get an energy audit completed. Although new home construction on Long Island has decreased, the importance of designing and constructing new homes while incorporating green solutions has increased. When building new homes, Energy Star rebates and energy conservation has become desirable in today’s market.

Natural Light

Talk to one of our design specialists about designing your remodel with the goal of getting as much natural light into the house as possible. This might mean bigger windows or strategically placing windows or doors in a part of your home that’s lacking windows at all, blocking the light from your living space.


One of the main components of a home remodel is setting a budget far in advance. If no clear budget is set, it’s easy to go over the amount your family is comfortable spending. A strong budget will help allocate your funds to areas of the remodel most important to you.

Use of Space

Some homeowners have the philosophy that bigger is better, but it isn’t always the case. Instead of expanding on your home, consider maximizing your space to create a living environment that fits your family’s needs. If you still don’t feel there’s enough space for you to live comfortably, then consider adding square footage.
