The majority of families spend more time in the kitchen than in any other room in their home. For maximum enjoyment, this all-important space should not only be comfortable and appealing, but as “green” as possible with natural light and fresh air.
Building and remodeling experts recommend lightening cabinets, countertops, walls, and sometimes floors in kitchens to reduce the need for electric lighting. Another simple and economical upgrade that can be implemented is the addition of one or more venting skylights to fill the room with healthful natural light and fresh air. And since skylights don’t take up wall space like vertical windows, more space is available for shelves or cabinets, or for decorating.
