Kitchen Remodeling With No VOCs – Boston, MA

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 19, 2014

A kitchen remodel can do more than just improve the look and feel of your kitchen, when done right, it also can improve your indoor air quality. Air quality is an important factor, especially during the winter months when homes are sealed up tight against the cold outdoor air.

Carpeting, paint and even the materials used in your shower might contain harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

New technology has helped home improvement with products that don’t contain VOCs. So, as you plan your remodeling project, be sure to use these products to help keep the air in your home cleaner.

The kitchen: You may never have thought your kitchen cabinets have the potential to pollute the air inside your home. But if you are looking at new cabinets that are made from a plastic-based material, or painted or varnished, there’s a chance the cabinets are producing VOCs. Wood cabinets look great in kitchens, and you can choose cabinet refinishing or cabinet refacing as a better, greener option that uses finishes without VOCs. Older cabinets are more likely to be made from wood as well.

The walls: A fresh coat of paint is the first element when planning a room design. Choosing the perfect color and knowing if a primer coat is needed are just two decisions that need to be made when picking a brand.

The bathroom: Usually one of the smallest rooms in the home, it’s more important to make certain the airspace has good quality. Upgrade your shower with a unit made of modular panels that are lightweight and interlock securely.

Eco-Friendly Kitchen Remodeling - Boston

Joseph Coupal - Friday, April 19, 2013

Are you considering remodeling your kitchen the eco-friendly way? Going green is the perfect way to create a healthier, eco-friendly gathering space for your family.

After your remodeling project is done, your kitchen will be energy efficient and it can increase the resale value of your home.

Incorporate some of these tips for an Earth-friendly remodeling project:

  • Make purchases that will last for years to come. Don’t be fooled by cheap, poor quality items. You’ll have to replace them often, which is definitely not green and ends up costing you more money in the long run.
  • Your old kitchen can actually be recycled. Your existing kitchen cabinets may be unattractive and out-of-date, but you can use your existing cabinets in your new kitchen! Reface cabinets or refinish cabinets to give them a whole new look. This is the greener option. No trash going to the landfill, no waste from demolition or installation, and of course, no energy used in transporting the new cabinets to your home. Using green paint or finish add to the eco-friendly décor.
  • Opt for sustainable flooring and countertops. Materials, such as wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, recycled glass and paper, cork, granite and quartz are among the many eco-friendly options.
  • Energy Star appliances are the most efficient in their product categories. An Energy Star-rated dishwasher and refrigerator will consume less energy and help you save on utility costs.
  • Paint is the simplest, most cost-effective way to transform a room. Most paint lines carry eco-friendly paint with low or zero VOCs.
  • Update a piece of furniture that you already own with a coat of zero VOC paint or wood stain.


A green kitchen remodeling project can suit your lifestyle and taste. With so many green choices, you can protect the environment and still create a sophisticated kitchen.
