Creating a kitchen that is kinder towards mother earth is easier than ever before. As it turns out, environmentally friendly materials can actually save you a ton of money in the long run. Here are just a few tips to take with you as you make your kitchen more green!
Environmentally Friendly Cabinets
While there aren’t many environmentally friendly cabinet materials available quite yet, using reclaimed wood is a good start. While reclaimed wood is not exactly a green material, it has the properties of natural materials. Opting for reclaimed wood is significantly less harmful to the environment than using other materials. Although you may need to put up some elbow grease to properly use reclaimed wood. In the end, it is well worth the effort. Therefore, looking for reclaimed wood for your cabinets can simultaneously look beautiful and be kind towards the environment.
Go With Natural Stone Countertops
An essential element in every kitchen are the countertops. In fact, many countertops are created as focal points in kitchens in many homes. Therefore, using natural stone as your countertop material, like granite is a wonderful way to create a greener kitchen. In addition, other green materials such as recycled glass or plastic are wonderful options as well. There are a ton of trendy ways you can incorporate natural elements into your kitchen’s design.
Numerous Flooring Options
These days you have a wide array of options when it comes to environmentally friendly flooring materials. In fact, cork is becoming a very popular material in kitchens that are going green. Due to improved engineering, many green materials are being produced as flooring options for homeowners looking to create an environmentally friendly kitchen.
