Furthermore, the advantages to be reaped are highly appealing to the home owner: reduced monthly utility bills, increased home value, and that’s just the beginning!
When it comes to turning your home into a ‘green’ one, there is no easier place to start than you kitchen. More specifically, you would want your kitchen countertops, the room’s center of attraction, to boast a beautiful shade and luxurious finish. A Heritage Wood countertop would be the ideal selection in this instance, as they not only come in a myriad of colours and finishes, but are also made from reclaimed wood, thus complying with LEED standards.
