Consider using natural materials in a remodel
Posted on Friday, July 27, 2012 at 3:47:44 PM
Homeowners looking to improve the design of their property may want to consider implementing the use of natural materials. Products such as stone, wood and metal are often very sustainable and may increase the value of a house.
Here are three materials to consider incorporating in a home design:
1. Quarried stone. Laminates and synthetic materials can’t possibly have the varied texture of naturally-quarried stone. Limestone, marble and granite provides character to a home design in rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom.
2. Wood. Whether you prefer cherry, oak, maple or pine, there is a wood and a finish out there for everyone. Bring the warmth of nature inside with natural cabinets or wooden floors.
3. Clay. An especially efficient material for homes located in the southern half of the United States, this product retains heat for excellent temperature control.
If any of these natural materials strike a chord with a homeowner, he or she may be interested in applying for a home improvement loan from Home Loan Investment Bank.
