Leather tiles are long strip-like planks that add a rugged richness and depth to a space. Leather will scratch easily, but after a couple of months, it patterns nicely.

Dreaming of a Green Christmas -

Once you are done with your tree for the season, don't just toss it on the curb, where it will end up taking landfill space. Recycle it! Most cities now have programs that collect Christmas trees and turn them into mulch.


Question: Just wondering if you have any tips for making my Christmas tree last longer. Thank you, John Spangler

Answer: As soon as possible, get the tree in water. Either set it up in its stand or place it in a bucket if you aren't going to trim it right away. The base of the cut tree should never dry out, in order to keep the needles fresher. 

A rough rule of thumb is that a typical tree might absorb a quart of water for each inch of its diameter. This means many stands need to be topped off daily. As a last resort, if your tree does end up getting dried out , you can try drilling some shallow holes at the tree’s base.

Keep the tree away from direct sunlight, heaters or fans, as these will speed up the drying process. Many experts suggest using a room humidifier, which can help keep the needles fresher longer, as well as reduce fire risk.

Keeping with the times is a smart and green idea when it comes to home lighting. Many energy efficient options are available for homeowners to choose from; including LED bulbs, LED strip lighting, LED outdoor lighting, LED tube lighting, task lighting, updated fixtures and natural lighting.

LED lighting is more than just eco-friendly; it adds interest and can provide a dramatic effect to your home. Natural lighting is the ultimate green lighting option, including well-placed windows and skylights.

Under-cabinet and under-counter LED lighting is a great way to add efficiency to your home and save on your monthly utility bills.

Do you love the idea of having a statement chandelier in your home? There are several green options, which can be installed with a dimmer switch for low-energy, mood lighting in an entry or dining area.

In addition to saving on your energy bill, the value of your home will increase and you will contribute towards preserving the environment. LED bulbs and fixtures require less energy to manufacture, as compared to incandescent bulbs. LED bulbs also take less space in landfills, contain no mercury and can be recycled.
