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.
Mix and match different chair styles, even considering completely different types of seating. For instance, you could add a bench to the mix for a stylish and eclectic idea. A good tip when matching various styles of chairs is to find something that unites at least some of the chairs to the table. For instance, a dark wooden chair can match the dark wooden table. Another good tip when ensuring your dining chairs work well with the specific room’s décor is to match the chairs in color to something else in the room. This could be yellow chairs that match cheerful yellow pendant lights, for example. The colors do not have to match exactly: a bit of contrast works well.
The trend of making use of old, worn materials or items is a must in green living. As you can see in the above image, a salvaged cabinet comes alive in the kitchen, giving it an interesting piece of furniture that could have been part of a living room in its previous life. By leaving salvaged items a little worn and torn, this further makes them unique creations in the kitchen, while preventing waste in the environment. Stone in the kitchen is always a great natural material, but you can also choose from stone countertops that are made from recycled materials. This takes the green initiative one step further. Stone can be trendy and colorful, as can be seen from the countertop in the above image that is made from recycled wine, beer and Vodka bottles.
