Roomhints has helped over 5 million customers to purchase products for their project.
In 2014, Roomhints mobile application launched. The app allowed customers to upload a photo of their room to get product recommendations. Within a month, the app had over 100,000 users! We knew we were onto something. However, the projects being uploaded were BIG projects such as, an entire 5000 SF home. Roomhints app was too limited to help our users. So, in 2018, we stopped the app and pivoted to a web platform. Where we can provide sustainable design hints both big and small.
Today, Roomhints, the #1 sustainable design network to find interior design professionals, sustainable products, Feng Shui practitioners, home energy clearing tips, education and more.
We believe in design that is good for you, and the planet.
WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE DESIGN?
Our mission is to inspire healthier spaces by connecting people to sustainable design.
WHAT WE DO
At Roomhints, we research products, interview professionals, and, companies to educate our community on the latest remodelling products for their design project.
What does that mean? We interview the people and companies behind the products. Their commitment to producing sustainable products, their life cycle transparency, where the product is manufactured, how it is shipped, the company culture, and the overall environmental impact.
HOW WE MEASURE SUSTAINIBILITY
What’s the company’s commitment to recycling?
Where do the extra products go?
When a product is removed from a home or site does it get recycled?
Where is the item made?
Where are all the materials sourced from and what is the carbon footprint?
How far is the location from which the item is made to its final destination?
Did you know that the energy that goes into making the product stays with the product? A product that is made on an assembly line or big factory holds different energy than a product that is custom made. Or made by a smaller factory.
We analyze the people behind the product.
Who makes it?
Who designs it?
Roomhints does a thorough overview of the materials that make up the product.
Where are they sourced from? Are they organic? Natural?
What is the long-term impact on the environment of these materials?
Are there better materials that could be used?
Roomhints looks at the full packaging of the product.
How is the item packed?
Is the product’s packaging footprint as minimal as possible?
What materials are used to package the product?
We believe in the power of ones’ space: changing our surroundings can improve productivity, happiness, romance, health, and success.
We believe in sustainable products: in understanding the materials and choosing products that represent the change you want to see in this world.
We believe in working together: When we work together – we can do more. We are connecting sustainable design professionals and products to consumers. Giving exposure to brands that we believe, deserve the exposure.
We believe in community & connection: building a platform where you can meet the people behind the products and local providers within your area.
We believe in quality over quantity: you will spend more time and energy purchasing cheap products over and over, vs. buying a quality product once, that will last your lifetime. This is timeless design.
Sustainable forward. At Roomhints we have a saying “sustainable forward.” We know it may be hard today to be a 100% sustainable company due to the current landscape. We aim for all brands and consumers to be thinking, sustainable forward.
Moving in a forward direction being conscious about the environment and ones personal or business impact.
Here’s to a better tomorrow.
