2015 Green Remodeling Trends

Have you considered green remodeling yet? Before you start the remodeling process, you have to understand the factors involved when it comes to living green. An environmental-friendly home remodeling project produces a much sustainable lifestyle for you and the entire household.

There are two crucial areas to focus on when you want to have a successful green remodeling project: building materials and energy efficiency. Design and build companies that are eco-minded could help make this possible. Did you know that a simple home remodel alone could make living sustainable? This is because you make use of what you already have rather than demolishing and building from scratch which is harmful to the planet.

Here are the top green remodeling trends this year:


Energy Efficiency

Renewable energy resources such as wind, water, and solar would help save the environment and your energy costs. Of course, these things need a bigger budget. However, there are other affordable options such as adding insulation, LED lighting, and passive solar upgrades. You could also reuse rainwater for landscaping.


Recycled Materials

Softer woods are more sustainable since they renew faster than the harder ones. You could have an attractive and elegant countertop made with recycled glass as well. Bamboo can also be used as an alternative for wooden flooring materials.


Reclaimed Materials

Old bricks, wood, windows, countertops, and tiles can be remodeled. Green remodeling companies can incorporate salvaged materials into something vintage.
