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.
Ensuring that you have proper lighting in the kitchen is not just practical, but it can be a style element, too. Place light fixtures over the center of the room where you will have your kitchen counter. Make sure that the lights hang at a length that provides you with enough lighting. If you require extra lights, consider spotlights on the ceiling that do their job without getting in the way of the light fixtures. Now for the décor bit: choose light fixtures or chandeliers that have a striking design. Kitchen windows are an important part of the room because they add a charming element to it. Of course, bringing in extra light is also vital to prevent a dull kitchen. The windows are the perfect place for a bit of a style injection. A window covering or valance adds some décor delight to your kitchen while still letting the light shine in.
There are two problems that plague almost everyone with a kitchen; too many pots or not enough cabinet space. Either way, you have to start getting creative with your pots and pans when it’s time to organize. Luckily for you, we’ve compiled a list of unique, fun and functional ways to hang them all up! Let’s take a peek! Take your most used pots and pans and hang them up right at the stove for easy access. Keep things clean, contemporary and uncluttered for a flattering, fashionable and functional look.
Bamboo is a sustainable material that can work wonderfully in the kitchen. You can choose from various grains and colors. A lighter shade of bamboo works well to make the kitchen appear light and bright. Volatile Organic Compounds (or VOCs) are toxic gases that are released from wall paint, so a good green move is to choose paints that are low or completely free of VOCs. Also choose building materials such as VOC-free glues and adhesives to ensure a healthier kitchen. Using what you already have to update your kitchen can be a simple way to jump on the eco-friendly bandwagon. Mismatched chairs look trendy and fun, while breathing new life into items of furniture that you did not want.
