Home remodeling projects are on the rise as homeowners choose to stay in their homes. But as those homeowners choose to begin remodeling projects, they are also making the choice to do ‘green’ remodeling.
A minor kitchen remodel can improve the look and utility of your kitchen without costing a bundle. It can also yield a 75% return. Replace cabinet fronts, countertops and flooring. Installing low-flow faucets and energy-efficient appliances can reduce water and energy expenses as well.
Did you know that refacing kitchen cabinets rather than replacing your kitchen cabinets is not only faster and more affordable than a replacing them, it is also much better on our environment? You can use your existing cabinets when you remodel your kitchen. By refacing existing cabinets, you’re saving trees and production energy as well as reducing waste and putting less into our landfills.
You can “recycle” your kitchen cabinets, in a way, but without sacrificing style, quality or appearance, by refacing cabinets instead. Typically cabinet refacing takes about 2-5 days.
Green remodeling also includes using renewable resources in counter tops and in using green paints, those that do not emit VOC’s and that are made with green ingredients.
