When approaching a residential remodel project, homeowners and professionals alike have a variety of options to prioritize depending on the space(s) involved and the anticipated value of the project in terms of increasing equity. While passion projects such as kitchen and bath remodels often require significant time and budgets, other opportunities take less investment and can prove to be more lucrative in recouping costs—including the use of manufactured stone veneer to enhance curb appeal.
Stressful situations captivate our attention on a daily basis, and we spend many of our waking hours trying to minimize the many adverse effects of stress in our personal and professional lives. Thankfully, the principles of design can hold just as much sway over our anxiety levels as more significant lifestyle adjustments, including self-care activities such as yoga and meditation. To reap the stress-reducing benefits of design, we simply need to go back to our roots and embrace the application of nature-inspired solutions to create more relaxing, human-centric spaces in our homes and businesses.
