If you’re trying to make your home more environmentally friendly, then there are plenty of smaller home green projects that you can do. You don’t necessarily have to build a LEED-certified home to go greener, after all. The following are some of the green home projects you might want to consider:
- Install another window – Even just adding one more window to your home can help you to add more natural light to a space, thereby reducing your dependence on artificial light in that room.
- Upgrade your kitchen appliances – Newer appliances provide more and better function. They also look better and use less energy than older appliances, which not only helps your kitchen become more environmentally friendly but will also help you save a substantial amount of money over the long run in energy costs.
- Use repurposed wood – When installing new flooring or building new furniture, use repurposed wood. Using new wood contributes to deforestation as well as pollution resulting from manufacturing and transportation.
- Go with white – A room designed in white better reflects light, helping reduce your use of artificial light.
