Save Your Energy

Inflate Your Tires

The winter chills are upon us. Have you checked the air pressure in your car tires in order to make sure that they are properly inflated? Cooler temperatures lower tire pressure, which, in turn, lowers fuel efficiency. Inflating your tires just takes a few minutes, and it is well worth your time! Black ice comes quickly when the weather gets cold and it often surprises the drivers on the road.

The Top 2023 Bathroom Trends

"Bathroom design in 2023 will continue to build on themes emerging since 2020, including clean lines, easy-maintenance materials, and heavy doses of natural colors. At the same time, an underlying current is shifting our view of bathrooms from task-focused spaces to rooms designed for comfort.

According to Jean-Jacques L’Henaff, a design expert with LIXIL Global Design, the bathroom has transformed into a space focused on health, wellness, and relaxation. At the same time, larger home design trends are influencing aesthetic styles. As a result, personalization is driving a lot of the design choices, encouraging homeowners to create comfortable rooms with custom bathing experiences."
