19 Years – 19 Bright Ideas

NW Natural Lighting is celebrating 19 Years as a family owned, local, business with 19 Bright Ideas!

Since we’re in people’s homes BRIGHTENING things up with our product lines; Solatube Daylighting, Retractable Screen Doors, Solar Powered Attic Fans, and Custom Interior & Exterior Railing, we thought why not highlight some of the BRIGHT ideas that we see that can help ANY home! So here goes 19 Years – 19 BRIGHT Ideas! You may even see some future more in-depth posts on these topics too!

1) Paint – Bright, happy colors make for a bright, happy house! If you prefer the darker tones pick and accent wall and make a room come alive! Need a place to start? Check out Design Your Own Room by Benjamin Moore!

2) Accessories – Throw pillows, table clothes, new drapes? Add a pop of color, choose an item that speaks to you and makes you smile

3) Flowers - They make everything better! A sprig from your garden, a bunch from a farmers market, these bright blooms will lift your mood and add some happy to any space! Need some inspiration, hop on Pinterest.

4) Mirrors – Reflect some light, make the rooms feel bigger, done & done!

5) Natural Light – Skylight, Tubular Skylight, Windows, all have their place, the more natural light the better! We might be partial to Solatubes :) how could we not!

6) Photos/Pictures – They may be worth a thousand words and those smiling faces might just bring a smile to your face.

7) Yard Art – Anything that adds a touch of whimsy to your yard and color to your landscape will brighten your view.

8) Solar Power – Panels on your roof? Solar powered attic fan? Little lights down your driveway? So many options!

9) Edible Plants – Need some fresh Basil? Mint anyone? Having a box of fresh herbs that you can pull from with freshen up any dish!

10) Railing – Safety AND design. You can make or break ANY space with design elements and keeping your home safe is always a top priority. Deck railing, pool railing, interior, or exterior; show off your style and your view with a fun and functional option.

11) A Welcome Door – Pick a bright color, sidelights, glass, or a fun door-knocker. You will feel more welcomed into your home and so will your guests!

12) Turn the Music Up – Speakers are not tied down any more! Bring the music outside, bring music to every room in your home! Listening to an upbeat song will brighten your mood and make whatever task you are doing just a little more fun!

14) Flooring – Wood, carpet, tile, slate, marble, pick one or pick a combination of several to liven up your space!

15) Reuse/Repurpose – Using this for that can both bring something old back to life and can keep it out of a landfill. Take shabby to sheak with a fresh coat of paint too! BUY local too! Check out Second Use in Ballard.

16) Outdoor Entertaining Space – It’s another space where people can gather and you can make it as cozy as if you were sitting in your living room!

17) Window Treatments – A finishing touch to any window, let the light in and then give it some style with treatments in every shade.

18) Retractable Screens – Keep cool, keep your view, you can have it all! French doors, single doors, sliders, they are custom fit for YOUR space.

19) Feng Shui – Bring balance, peace, and harmony check out these great ideas to make your home a space that has it all! Read more here!

There it is 19 Bright Ideas from our 19 Years of experience. Stay tuned in to our blog for more ideas and updates on the products that we offer!

NW Green Home Tour “Grows” Again!

NW Green Home Tour “Grows” again!

 The third NW Green Home Tour is officially wrapped up and judging by chats with a few of the hosts on the tour; a great success. Thank you so much to our partners who showcased the Solatubes in their homes! Jim Bristow on the tour said, “It was very gray outside, so it (the Solatube) showed of its ability to bring a lot of light on one of our typical Seattle days!” That’s the great thing about clouds, they bounce light around quite uniformly and we’re pleased to have so many people witness that you don’t have to have sunshine to brighten a room with a Solatube.
 
Thank you also to those who wandered through both the homes and the sustainability stops. We would love to get some feedback from you on our Facebook page. What did you think was really cool or helpful?
 
Some hosts on the tour saw as many as 200+ people wander through to learn about saving energy with the latest technology and innovative ideas. As this was our first year with our Edmonds showroom as a stop, we were thrilled to have everyone in the free morning DIY class take home a Solatube kit. Joel, our installer of 5+ years obviously did a great job teaching! See our winners of our drawings with their Trader Joe Bags loaded with organic treats on our Facebook page, who doesn’t like free food!?
 
I can easily see this event continue to grow each year as eco-friendly ideas become more and more sophisticated. It does help to have clusters of stops, so to our partners, let’s think about that for next year to maximize appeal and convenience for our visitors.
Cheers to another great year!

The Northwest Green Home Tour is HERE!

2013_NWGHT_WebPromo_250x250The Northwest Green Home Tour is THIS SATURDAY! Each year I’m surprised by the ingenuity, creativity and resourcefulness of the architects, remodelers and builders featuring their brilliance in the Northwest Green Home Tour! This is the third year for this fun FREE annual event and it truly has something for everyone with 26 homes and businesses to visit! Did you know you can “collect” enough rainwater to use for your garden but have plenty left over to shower in, cook with and drink?! An off-the-grid independent water supply is the goal of Bristow Enterprises at Site # N02 on the tour. He’s working with a company that has already performed this feat in about four hundred homes!
 
You are sure to gather ideas and useful information from the simple and practical (like it really is not a good idea to plant those Tomato plants right next to a home slathered in lead paint) to getting useful information about Solar, Urban Farming (Check out the Chicken Coop at Site # SW07) to “green – literally growing roofs”, and incorporating recycled materials of all kinds. After visiting the Green Home Solutions – Sustainability Stop #S01, I was really impressed with the beauty of the latest in recycled materials; many colors and textures of tile, beautiful cabinetry and an array of countertops. The offerings have come a long way from the original olive green and brown recycled carpet squares and low VOC paint!
 
The best part about the Northwest Green Home Tour is many of the owners of these sites have been enjoying the energy-saving and eco-friendly improvements for years because they’ve tried them out in their own homes. This means that YOU get the specifics on what truly works best and the ever-popular question; What did it cost?
 
Tips to see what is most important to you:
Take advantage of the icons listed near each site. Depending upon what you’re most interested in, you’ll find 11 possible icons from urban farming to Solar, water conservation to indoor air quality and more. And this is the first year that the Northwest Eco Building Guild has teamed up with Built Green. So you can look for the Built Green logo and tour entire custom built homes that have been rated built green for some beefy energy efficiency throughout.
 
One more tip, I was really excited to learn that in addition to our Solatubes being featured at the Mighty House Site #SW03, I just learned last night that you can also see Solatubes at site #SW07 and site #N02. So come visit our showroom to see four Solatubes in action, our Solar Powered attic van and our retractable Screen doors. Or if you run short on time, see the Solatubes in any of these other three locations!
 
Cheers to a great home tour!
