November: South Sound Home Design Trends and Tips

Workouts on the Wall

The Mirror

This mirror doubles as a personal trainer — minus clutter or a gym commute. Since COVID stay-at-home orders, at-home gym equipment sales have soared. The Mirror can be yours for about $1,500. When not in use, it looks like home décor on a stand or mounted to the wall.


Tonal is another compact gym solution that offers a full-body workout, coaches, and “smart” strength training solutions for all bodies. When not in use, it is flat and on the wall. Cost is about $5,360.

Simple Tip? Paint a Door

Create instant impact easily by painting a door an unexpected color. This low-gloss paint in “Tame Teal” is a showstopper. It’s on the outside of a mudroom, so if you have dirty boots from the pumpkin patch, you’d better skip the front door and head to the teal one.
