The contemporary home serves many different functions for both living and working. Today, best practice for remodeling these areas includes options that not only meet functional needs but are also highly effective in mitigating environmental impact. Kitchens and bathrooms are active spaces and significant consumers of water and energy; choosing environmentally friendly appliances, fixtures, and finishes helps to reduce energy and water consumption and protect non-renewable resources. In kitchens and especially bathrooms, it is advised to invest in durable, high performance features. Whether it’s through an energy-saving dishwasher, living room flooring made from renewable materials, bed linens made from bamboo, or a high-efficiency exhaust system, greening living spaces is a fundamental part of the overall green home remodel.
