New Look

Make your guests green with envy by going "green" the right way. Imaginative makeovers salvage and repurpose as much of the original materials as possible and effectively blend those existing materials with new eco-friendly products.

In addition to utilizing energy-efficient appliances and lights, many remodeling projects now incorporate innovative materials, such as cabinetry made with FSC-certified* wood; low- or no-VOC* paints and wood stains; sustainable copper metal accents; water-saving faucets; and concrete counter tops.

By striping and cleaning existing pantry cabinets, tile flooring and hardware, many original components are often salvageable. Restoring and repurposing materials can save energy, money and resources, and in many cases, help retain the original ambiance of older structures.
*FSC = Forest Stewardship Council; VOC = volatile organic compounds
