Consider creative methods to be environmentally responsible when renovating your kitchen. Here are a few suggestions. If you need more information, call Cabinet Magic at 800-828-4380 or come in to see what we have to offer.
Bamboo is an environmentally friendly material
Bamboo is one of the most environmentally friendly construction materials. It’s wonderful for cutting boards, but it’s also terrific for floors, backsplashes, and a variety of other uses. Consider bamboo as a material if you’re intending to install new flooring or wood in another location.
Having your cabinets refaced is a great way to add value to your home
Refacing your cabinets may be the best option if the arrangement of your cabinets still makes sense but the cabinets themselves have seen better days. This method entails removing the existing cabinet faces and replacing them with new ones. We can also install whatever gear you like. The end result is a kitchen that looks brand new while using far less resources and producing far less waste than if you had completely rebuilt your cabinets.
Take into account the lighting
According to some surveys, the average homeowner spends approximately a quarter of their energy bill on lighting. If you can cut down on the number of lights you use, you can cut down on the amount of energy you consume. This lowers your expenses while also lowering your carbon impact — it’s a win-win situation. Using fluorescents is one possibility. They can cut energy use by half.
You may also plan your kitchen around natural light in order to make the most of it. On the other hand, you may put up a skylight that lets the sun’s rays in. Task lighting also allows you to switch on only the light you require.
Invest in energy-efficient appliances
If it’s time to replace your appliances, look for the most energy-efficient alternatives available. While they are likely to be more expensive than ordinary machines, the expense can be recouped in two ways. How? You will have reduced energy expenses on a month-to-month basis, and they may last longer than cheaper choices, because you may get a better offer when it comes time to sell your house.
