Green home design companies have been around for a while, yet they are now making their mark within the property design and building industry as consumers become more aware of the impact our decisions are having upon the environment.

More Than Aesthetics
As the world grows larger, more of our natural resources are being used. Green home design companies have been pushing the idea that great design is more than just aesthetics. They suggest what we should be focussing on is how the design works on an environmental level as well as whether it is pleasing to use and look at.
Having an environmentally friendly home used to be seen as being costly and a bit of an eyesore. So another way green home design companies have changed the design industry is by encouraging the production of sustainable fixtures such as solar panels that blend rather than appear tacked on. An example being solar panels that have gone from being large bulky fixtures that sit on the roof, to designer looking window frames with built in panels.
