Best for Remodeling and Redecorating

Update your home with fresh walls, fun flooring and stylish accents.

Shine on

Illuminate a room—and your spirits—with a beautiful lamp or chandelier made from natural or repurposed materials. For optimal energy savings, use a compact fluorescent or LED bulb.

Paint pick-me-up

Painting is one of the least expensive, easiest ways to update. Look for brands with low emissions of volatile organic compounds—“low-VOC” or “zero-VOC”—to keep the odor and air quality as fresh as your home’s new look. Some paints now also have low-VOC colorants.

New floor, squared

Flooring squares or tiles are convenient alternatives to vinyl or conventional carpet. Plus, you can easily replace stained or damaged sections with a single new tile (buy a couple extra, just in case). Choose styles made from recycled rubber, cork, recycled plastic (including bottles and carpet scraps) or renewable linseed. Some types are biodegradable; others can be recycled by the manufacturer.
