In environmental terms, self-sufficiency can be understood as reducing the pressure you exert on the earth for the resources you need to survive. This article suggests some simple and affordable adjustments you could make in your home which would reduce the carbon footprint of your day-to-day activities.
With the overproduction of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases being the core concern of the climate crisis, our goal should be to use as little non-renewable energy in the functioning of our homes as possible. Read on for advice on how to achieve this in your home and save money in the process!
Over the past few months, we have been interviewing leading Workplace Professionals in the best companies from around the world. This week, we share the greatly animated conversation our CEO Stephanie Akkaoui Hughes had with Sam Fuller, Workplace Services Manager at Mundipharma International Limited.
Your home is a reflection of you. It is one of the few spaces that you have for yourself and can therefore be made into reflection of who you truly are. Designing such an important space might seem like a daunting project, so we’ve noted down a few key things you should keep in mind while designing your dream interiors.
When it comes to renovating your kitchen space, there are several factors you might not have considered beyond ensuring the furnishings are resistant to wear and tear. This space plays a crucial role in creating an uncluttered, spacious and functional home. We’ve outlined exactly what we think makes a kitchen perfectly suited to modern working homes.
One of the first and most important decisions to make in the renovation process is your team; do you need to hire professionals to help you, and if so which ones? Is a contractor enough? Reading this article could help you decide whether you need to hire an architect for your project or if it is best for you to go at it alone.
When looking to buy a home, you might be asking yourself if you should go for a new, completely renovated house or instead, opt for a property which needs work and choose to renovate it yourself? This article addresses the pros and cons of both and could help you decide which option suits your situation best.
Working from home could well become part of the ‘new normal’ in working lifestyle, therefore we need to turn our attention to the physical and mental environment at home. Creating a home office setup with proper furniture promotes a healthier lifestyle, as well as higher productivity and concentration levels.
There are many benefits to introducing indoor plants in your office space. Some of these include increasing the productivity, creativity, and overall wellbeing of your employees. In this article, we explore a range of indoor plant varieties based on the functions and benefit they may serve.
As you prepare to welcome your employees back into the workplace, it might be a good time to reconsider the plants you have in the space. It’s important to take into account the placement and variety of indoor plants based on factors like level of maintenance and the specific context of the space.
Whether you are considering a renovation or an extension to your present home or the construction of a completely new house, choosing a professional to help you is one of the most important considerations that go into this project.
This week, we share the extremely insightful conversation our CEO Stephanie Akkaoui Hughes had with Bertie van Wyk, Workplace Specialist at Herman Miller.
Renovating your home might seem like an arduous and daunting task. There are a lot of factors that go into this process, at both the design and construction stages, which could be confusing and overwhelming to you.
In high density cities, it might not always be easy to find an outdoor space just for yourself, away from the city’s noise and banter, and easily accessible. If you have a flat under-utilised roof, you need not look any further.
Whether you are renovating your entire home or just one of the spaces, having a good sense of interior design styles will help you create a more cohesive and well-thought look and feel for your house. Interior design styles can be confusing or overwhelming.
