Cool Kitchen Tricks

Kitchens are the busiest room in the house, and most could use a bit of home improvement to make them more functional, convenient, and attractive. Read on for some innovative ideas to improve the kitchen that won’t break your budget.

Reducing Volatile Organic Compounds in Your Home

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are harmful gases that can be emitted by some paints, solvents, cleaners, adhesives, furniture, and shelving. When using products that contain high levels of VOCs, open windows and turn on fans to provide plenty of fresh air. Better yet, purchase products labeled low or no VOC to reduce the level of volatile organic compounds in your home.
