Now more than ever, it’s important that you live sustainably to help our environment. Other than no longer plastics or recycling your reusable items, you can also incorporate sustainable living in your home’s interior design, specifically your kitchen.
Your kitchen is one of the places that have the most waste, from your cooking, packing, CO2 emissions, and the likes. So how do you have a more sustainable kitchen for your home?
As an interior design firm that has helped in remodeling numerous kitchens in the community of Fairfax, Virginia, we’ve helped many homeowners find more cost-effective, eco-friendly solutions to reducing their kitchen’s carbon footprint.
Here are some of the ideas we suggest to get you started on your kitchen renovation:
Energy-Efficient Light Fixtures
More and more manufacturers are going for a more sustainable route by selling light fixtures that are more energy efficient. If you’re planning to remodel your old kitchen interior, you should consider these types of light fixtures. Not only does it reduce the CO2 emissions in your home, but it also reduces your electricity bills.
Wooden or Steel Storages for a Plastic-Free Home
When you use wooden storage organizers or stainless steel food storage, you’ll be helping the environment out tremendously. Not only that, going for a more plastic-free alternative for your storage makes your kitchen clean and chic, bringing in a more contemporary look to it.
Also, as a side note for the plastic-free storage, you can opt to use reusable containers for your food and beverages to lessen your waste in the kitchen.
Before, energy-efficient technology has been pricey in the market. But nowadays, more and more homeowners are given the opportunity to purchase these energy-efficient appliances for their homes, and their kitchens, so that they can have a more eco-friendly space and less money spent on their electricity bill.
If you have old fixtures in your home that can be incorporated in your kitchen’s renovation, then reuse them. This way, you’ll decrease the amount of waste on your renovation and have a more environmentally friendly option for your kitchen’s design.
Nowadays, the idea of repurposing old items has become a trend. So you don’t have to worry about every piece in your dated kitchen. You can call in a professional to assess your home and see what they can do to restore its value in your new contemporary kitchen.
This includes your countertops, fittings, and the like. More and more homeowners are considering going for a more eco-friendly approach with the kitchen design ideas. Hence, we make use of wooden countertops, wooden cabinets, and even linen tea towels for their kitchen fitting. There are now a variety of options in the market for sustainable kitchen materials and furniture you can use to build the kitchen of your dreams.
