Renovation tips :: Trade secrets for a greener and healthier home

With all the rebuilding that will begin to take place this year I thought the best thing I could do is to share some trade secrets with a series of greener and healthier renovation and decoration tips to help when it comes to redecorating or rebuilding your home.

These tips will not only create a healthier home but will reduce your bills and also save you money in the long term with a more effective selection of finishes, furniture, appliances and equipment.

I have listed a few subject ideas below and in my questionnaire at the top of my blog. Feel free to let me know if there are any other specific topics or issues you would like to me to cover.

Recycling ideas for the home

I welcome and look forward to your comments and suggestions. Have fun...


  1. Hi lovely Lisa,

    I tell you what I'd like to to best store recycling in our kitchen. We currently have a box outside the back door.

    Whatever I try looks hideous!! Grrr...


  2. Wow. Looking forward to this series!


  3. Oh great tip, thanks Lisa!! We're building in 2 years, so up for all sorts of green tips as we're going solar with a bit of wind power too, to eb self sufficient with a garden & farm. Love Posie

  4. Hello Lisa,

    We are WomenInBusiness colleagues/classmates. Your post in the LinkedIn forum caught my eye.

    First, I'm really looking forward to the series, both for myself - I always love new tips - and as you spread the word!

    In addition to green building/remodeling some ideas about green decorating would be wonderful. Vintage and antiques don't have to mean stuffy and expensive. It's a wonderful way to let your personality really shine and make your home a unique statement about who you are.

    I'm looking forward to getting email updates in my inbox!

  5. Hi

Thanks for your thoughts. I read every comment and appreciate your feedback.
Have fun, Lisa
