Various Tips for a Green Kitchen

Posted on February 14, 2019

Eco-friendly alternatives, while good for the environment, are also known to be quite expensive and hard to find.  However, eco-friendly products are becoming more common and are now available in various different styles and are cheaper than ever before. With that out of the way here are various tips you can use for your kitchen remodeling.

Nontoxic cabinets

You might not know it but most wooden cabinets contain traces of urea formaldehyde. This can be detrimental to your health. When shopping around for cabinets for your kitchen remodeling you may want to look for solid wood or other materials like wheatboard.

Recycled counters

There a lots of counters available in recycled paper or even in Hemp. These are durable and easy to clean but the only problem is you have limited selection with colors. You could also try using quartz for your counters as the depth of color is nothing short of beautiful.


You’ve got to think about the quality of your air. Install a range hood with an exhaust and you will notice a big difference in your surroundings in no time.

Energy efficiency

When you are shopping around for appliances for your kitchen remodeling, be sure to take a look at the energy star labels — these will show you just how much more efficient they are compared to standard models. They can be pricey but the money you save in the long run makes it more than worth it.

Flooring solutions

For green flooring solutions you might want to try linoleum. It’s made of all-natural materials it is easy to maintain and is very strong. You will get plenty of color selections when you choose linoleum. Other choices you have are cork and bamboo.

Good lighting

Have you ever considered installing motion sensor lighting for your kitchen remodeling.  It could save you a lot of money as they automatically turn the lights off once it knows when no one is using the kitchen.
