Bamboo is a sustainable material
Bamboo is one of the greenest building materials. In addition to being perfect for cutting boards, it’s also a great option for floors, backsplashes, and many other things. Consider bamboo as a material if you plan to install new flooring or wood in another area.
Reface your cabinets
Refacing your cabinets can be the best option if the layout of your cabinets still makes sense, but the cabinets themselves have seen better days. In this case, we would remove the actual cabinet faces and swap them out for fresh ones.
The hardware of your choosing can also be added by us. The end result is a kitchen that appears completely brand-new while using a lot less material and producing a lot less trash than if you had completely replaced your cabinets.
Think about your lighting
According to some research, the typical homeowner spends roughly 25% of their utility budget on lighting. You can use less energy if you can cut back on the number of lights you leave on. It’s a win-win situation because it lowers your bills and lessens your carbon footprint. Use of fluorescents is one possibility. They can cut their energy consumption by 50%.
To make the most of natural light, you may also plan your kitchen around it. You may go as far as installing a skylight that lets the sun’s rays inside. It’s also possible to only turn on the light you require by installing task lighting.
Spend money on energy-efficient appliances
When it comes time to replace your appliances, you should think about going with the most eco-friendly models available. Even though they will probably cost more than your typical equipment, the investment could pay for itself twice over. How? You will pay less for energy each month, and it’s possible that they’ll last longer than less expensive solutions since you might receive a better offer when it comes time to sell your house.
