Are you remodeling your home? Keep the environment in mind as you plan the construction project.

When going green during a remodel, make sure you are adding in green elements that you are able to sustain, and that are practical. Plus, unless you plan on living in this home forever, you also need to think about your resale value.

Here are some green updates that could make you - and future owners - happy:

Use zero-VOC paints Install radiant-heat flooring Install Caesarstone countertops Create multi-purpose rooms Install energy-efficient HVAC systems
