How Can I Remodel My Nashville Home In An Environmentally Responsible Way?
Here are some top eco-friendly remodeling ideas for your home remodeling project:
- Any reclaimed materials are great for keeping your home eco-friendly and sustainable. Reducing, reusing, and recycling are the best ways to make the most of different materials and build a beautiful and unique home. Some products you might consider reclaiming include wood floors, paneling, windows, doors, bricks, and other similar items.
- Old furniture can give your remodeled or new home a sense of nostalgia. We love refacing old furniture and giving it new life in a modern eco-friendly home. Several different furniture pieces are easier than others to reface, but wood furniture will almost always be the best.
- Look for materials that will last a long time and won’t require much upkeep, so you will want eco-friendly items that will last a long time with little to no maintenance. These more durable options will be sustainable because they’ll last for years or decades on end, and you won’t need to replace them.
- When it comes to eco-friendly remodeling, paint and stains are often overlooked. Many options are available at your local paint store, but sometimes few are low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds). VOCs are solvent-based chemicals in small quantities in many water-based paints and coatings. While they might aid in making a better paint or stain, they can also cause a lot of harm to those living in the homes where they’re used. Talk to your hardware or paint stores about the benefits of using a more “all-natural” paint instead of just using whatever is on sale.
