ABOUT US

Our mission is to help build a sustainable future for interior design

OUR STORY

Roomhints started in 2014 as a simple mobile app – upload a photo of your space and get “hints” for how to design. 

The app got 10,000 downloads within the first day of launching into the app store. We were blown away and excited by the interest in the product. 

But, we started to notice that people wanted more than what Roomhints app could do. Our users were uploading their 5000 SF homes, 20,000 SF hotel developments and asking thousands of questions, such as, how can I help to sell my home? 

With that, we took the data from Roomhints app and transposed it to www.roomhints.com. A destination where you can find conscious design hints, no matter how big or small your project is. 

Roomhints aims to be the destination featuring sustainable products, hotels, conscious design professionals, home energy clearings/best practices, Feng Shui, and more. 

 

WHAT IS CONSCIOUS DESIGN?

“Conscious design of our total environments. Awareness for the products we purchase for our spaces. The energy the products embody, commitment to sustainability and quality.

We’ve helped over 1 million
consumers to find
product hints.

WHAT WE DO

We at Roomhints research conscious designed products, professionals, and companies.

What does that mean? We interview the people and companies behind the products. Their commitment to producing sustainable products, their company transparency, where the product is manufactured, how it is shipped, the company culture, and the overall environmental impact.

WHAT IS SUSTAINABILITY?

“Sustainability: the conscious design of our total environment, in order to help make the Earth’s finite resources meet the needs of all of humanity without disrupting the ecological processes of the planet.” - R. Buckminster Fuller

HOW WE MEASURE SUSTAINIBILITY

#1. Recycling

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?

 

#1. Recycling

#2. Location

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?

#2. Location

#3. People

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? 

#3. People

#4. Materials

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?

#5. Packaging

Roomhints looks at the full packaging of the product.

VISION

We believe in the power of the space that 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. When you can, buy vintage vs. new. 

We believe in working together: When we work together, we can do more, we can connect and build a supportive community and make decisions that are good for the entire collective and planet. 

We believe in community & connection: building a platform where you 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 as they do not last vs. buying a quality product once, that will last your lifetime. 

THE FUTURE

Sustainable forward.  At Roomhints we have a saying “sustainable forward.” We know it may be hard to be 100% sustainable company due to the current landscape. We aim for all brands and consumers to be thinking, sustainable forward. You are moving in a forward direction with being conscious about the environment,  the impact your business has on it’s  future or the products that you purchase. 

Here’s to a better tomorrow. 

With love, 

Team Roomhints
