Greening Your Home
Make Your Home Green
March 17th will once again usher in the Irish soda bread and "Kiss Me, I'm Irish" buttons, but being green doesn't have to be limited to clothing and food items. When it comes to building your home, this spring is the perfect time to make some 'green' changes to your construction plans, or even to your lifestyle.
If you are building a home this season, consider adding green products to your home. Using energy-saving appliances can not only save you a bundle, but our environment will thank you, too.
||This kitchen is controlled with a|
Lutron® HomeWorks® lighting system.
Do you have a routine of walking through your house and shutting off lights? Lutron's® HomeWorks®
is here to make your life easier. HomeWorks® automatically adjusts to varying amounts of daylight, perfectly balancing the amount of artificial and natural light in a room. The HomeWorks® system is made up of a series of shades and dimmers that can be programmed to perfectly serve the lighting needs of any room.
Lisbon Cork Rossio Cork
The idea of a cork floor might sound a little odd, but taking a look at Lumber Liquidators®
cork flooring options will have you changing your tune. These beautiful cork flooring solutions have the same 25 year warranty as hardwood, but they are soft underfoot and naturally water-resistant. Cork is also great for sound deadening due to the honeycomb cell structure of the bark. It is a renewable resource that regrows completely within nine years.
On the hardness scale of one to ten, these Zodiaq® Quartz Kitchen Countertops
come in at a seven. Very hard when you consider that the only thing that scores a ten are diamonds. The smooth, non-porous surface resists even the toughest spills and retains its luster for many years. This easy to clean surface can be cut to fit most custom installations giving homeowners a wide range of design options.
