You want to remodel your home, but you also want a company to do it that has values that will produce sustainable building by using eco-friendly building materials. You also want to create a luxurious space for yourself and your family. Green building has been a growing industry and many designers reuse materials to create something new and luxurious. Builders and interior designers will preserve materials during demolition or find reclaimed materials and use them for your home to help bring about the luxury home remodeling result you have dreamed about. Here are a few ideas for eco-friendly building materials for your luxury home remodeling project.

Reusing Materials

Reclaim wood during demolition and use it later on as decor. It can be distressed, cut to new dimensions or painted to make it look different and new.
If you’re replacing the aged windows with wood framing, keep them and turn them into a greenhouse for flowers and plants.
Use tiles that were broken during the demolition as part of a mosaic.
Take unwanted fixtures and other reusable materials to a salvage yard so they can be reused.
Find materials from a salvage yard for building, finishing and decor.

Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Building Materials

Find beetle kill wood for your floors, cabinets, furniture and decor.
Use sustainable flooring materials – bamboo, concrete, glass tiles, wool carpet, P.E.T. Berber carpet, rubber, cork, and reclaimed hardwood.
Use non-toxic paint with low fumes.
Purchase energy efficient appliances.
Install windows that are energy efficient to cut down heating and cooling in your home.
Use building materials that are created from recycled materials, like drywall, glass tiles, carpet and carpet padding, and steel.
