Going Green At Home

Going Green At Home

Going green with home improvements offers numerous advantages. Homeowners who take the green initiative often find that they lower their utility bills. Sources show that as recently as 2008, Americans saved over $19 billion just by making green choices at home.

While these improvements can lower household bills, you will have to pay for supplies. Use a home improvement calculator to find out how much your project will cost. If you must, make some room in your budget by cutting unnecessary expenses. Luckily, many of these home improvements will add value to your home.

The Kitchen

Most kitchens use a lot of resources because they have so many appliances. You can chip away at your resource consumption by making some of the following renovations:

The Bedrooms

The bedroom might not seem like a place where you can make many green improvements, but there are some options that will make your quarters environmentally friendly and more comfortable.

The Living Room

The living room gives you plenty of opportunities to make your home eco-friendly. You just have to get creative and make the right choices when remodeling.

The Laundry Room

Since most laundry rooms have washers and dryers, you automatically have plenty of ways to reduce energy usage in this area of the home.
