An eco-friendly kitchen calls to mind health and happiness, plus sustainable materials that will last longer than a few seasons. Here are some ways you can ensure a greener kitchen. Make use of your kitchen’s natural light which can save you money on electricity bills and make your home much warmer. You can achieve more sun by making the most of the southern exposure of the home so that additional light will stream into your kitchen on a daily basis.
Small kitchen islands like this one are easier to relocate and move around. They can also serve multiple purposes. For example, this one could be a very nice side table or serving cart. If your kitchen island has a design that allows it to also be used as a table then putting wheels on it is that much more practical. You can easily move it around and sue as a dining table whenever you have guests coming over. Small kitchen islands give you the possibility of having more than one. In other words, instead of having one big island you can have two or three smaller ones and also use them individually whenever needed.
Cork flooring in the kitchen can be a lovely rustic aesthetic to your home, plus with its sustainability factor, cork is a lovely choice instead of wood. Cork trees regrow every nine years, while trees such as maple take up to 30 years or more to replenish, thus using them are kinder to the environment. In the kitchen, cork works well when set against modern colors, such as lime green. They provide the perfect background for a bit of color saturation. Although it might not be considered eco-friendly at first glance, mounting your kitchen faucet to the wall can make a huge difference in the layout of the room. It allows for more space, which is especially advantageous in smaller kitchens. This maximizes your efficiency, allowing for more people to work at the sink simultaneously, which can also save you water.
