Getting your home LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified means that your home’s design is recognized as being eco-friendly and has met LEED’s high green standards. The following are a few things that a LEED interior designer will want you to know:
- Style is not sacrificed – Just because a LEED interior designer focuses on creating a green interior design does not mean that they will ignore the aesthetics of the design.
- They’ll use real green products and materials – It’s pretty easy to be fooled by products that claim they are eco-friendly when they really aren’t that eco-friendly at all. A LEED interior designer will ensure that you use the most sustainable products and materials available.
- A green home is a healthy home – In addition to being eco-friendly, a green home is also healthier for kids to grow up in since green homes have much higher air quality than non-green homes.
- Not all projects are good candidates – Some existing homes cannot be completely LEED certified, but that doesn’t mean a LEED interior designer can’t help make your home as green as possible.
