The Safety You Seek | Safe Room Design Part 2 featuring Saferoom.Com Doctoring Up Design

    • Home & Garden

This is Doctoring Up Design, the official Design Hardware podcast. I’m Josh Cooperman and today we are continuing our conversation about safety and security in residential design. This topic is not being discussed to scare you or to make anyone uncomfortable. To the contrary, there are a few ideas here that are extremely important and incredibly timely.  Here’s the idea…we live in a civilized society, but not necessarily a safe one. Weather patterns have changed and it would be crazy not to address those changes by preparing for the worst  potential outcomes, right? Technological advances have made the modern American home stronger, more efficient, more comfortable and highly performative. And, it continues to get better. Our society has become more dangerous. It’s just the way it is. So, if you are a homeowner listening to this, and safety is important to you, keep listening. If you are a designer, architect or builder, you have a remarkable opportunity to increase your firm’s profile, create a new value proposition, a brand extension that will set you apart by offering something that is not widely offered by the design trade at large. And, you will generate more revenue in the process. If this is of interest to you. This is what you heard in the last episode of the show.You heard from Garett Winn, and Matt Terry from Safe room. This is part two of that conversation. In part one, we discussed the very basics of beginning to plan out your safe room design and the very basic ideas around that design itself. In February of 2024, Garrett, Matt and I met again, this time in person at Design Hardware to discuss these very ideas with far more depth and texture. We covered a lot of ground and if you are considering a safe room for your home or as I designer, you want to offer this as part of your services, you are going to want to hear this. It’s great information that not only provides a much needed service, but it also creates new revenue streams for designers, architects and builders. Those in real estate should also give a listen. This could be the reason why buyers would select one property over another. We are going to get to that, right after this.Thank you Garett and Matt with Saferoom for your time and expertise. This was part two of a series that we was held live from the Design Hardware showroom in Los Angeles. Check out the Instagram feed, @DesignHardwareandflooring for more information as it’s released. Thank you Michele Solomons and Avi Balsam with Design Hardware for your continued and unwavering support of the design and architecture community. And thank you for listening to the podcast. I love hearing from you, love learning about new products and guests you think should be featured on the podcast, so email me, with ideas and suggestions. Until the next episode, be well.
