Working with a local designer who specializes in green renovations, the Beckelmens chose products such as concrete-and-recycled-glass countertops, sustainable wood cabinets, a dual flush toilet, and sconces that use CFLs.

What a difference! Make sure to check out This Old House for the entire renovation.

I think the best thing you can do is reuse materials you already have in your home. I'm taking the cabinet out of my bathroom and reusing in my kitchen as a pantry. I'm also just going to paint the cabinets in my kitchen at least for now. It's so much cheaper too.

Besides the wallpaper (not a fan of wallpaper!), I didn't think the before photo looked too bad. But the after is definitely nicer!
