Tips for Eco Friendly Kitchen Renovations

HarmonyHomeProjects

Inadequate storage and dated cabinetry styles are two most common reasons people embark on a kitchen renovation. Well -designed storage space can turn an awkward space into an efficient and very functional kitchen that is a pleasure to work and relax in. Refreshing old cabinets or replacing them can transform a kitchen from a shabby to fabulous. So if your cabinets have you down, my advise is to make a change – as long as you make it green. What’s the difference between a conventional kitchen and a green one? Often the difference isn’t apparent to the eye. Here are key differences:

What’s Green:

  • Reuse of existing cabinets (or recycle old cabinets in new applications e.g. for storage)
  • Durable construction and hardware
  • Clever designs that do more with less space
  • FSC-certified, reclaimed or rapidly renewable materials
  • Low or no VOC and formaldehyde emissions
  • Eco-friendly kitchen appliances

What’s Not

  • Poor quality cabinets that don’t last
  • Carrying old cabinets to the landfill
  • Cabinets faced with PVC thermfoil
  • Uncertified old growth or tropical woods
  • Particleboard, MDF, or plywood made with urea formaldehyde-based glues
  • Solvent-based finishes that offgas VOC

In your next renovation project you may consider incorporating some of above eco-friendly kitchen renovation tips to create a healthier environment.
