Cork flooring in the kitchen can be a lovely rustic aesthetic to your home, plus with its sustainability factor, cork is a lovely choice instead of wood. Cork trees regrow every nine years, while trees such as maple take up to 30 years or more to replenish, thus using them are kinder to the environment. In the kitchen, cork works well when set against modern colors, such as lime green. They provide the perfect background for a bit of color saturation. Although it might not be considered eco-friendly at first glance, mounting your kitchen faucet to the wall can make a huge difference in the layout of the room. It allows for more space, which is especially advantageous in smaller kitchens. This maximizes your efficiency, allowing for more people to work at the sink simultaneously, which can also save you water.
As mentioned earlier, a splash of colour provides you with an easy yet effective way of bringing a beautiful yet bold colour into the kitchen. This is exactly what we see here with the splash of green. Green is great because it offers the ideal blend between calming yet energising qualities. If you want to bring blue into your kitchen but don’t want to go down the icy palette, this option is for you. This kitchen is classy, sophisticated and elegant. It has that traditional charm offered by the wooden features yet the blue ensures it is far from boring. If you want to bring bright colours into your kitchen without causing a headache, this is the option to go for. Opt for a white base and then bring pops of various vibrant shades into the equation. Fun, funky and fresh!
Concrete is a great idea for use as a countertop material. Not only is concrete durable but it comes in a variety of colors that can liven up the kitchen. It is versatile to work with different styles and design options, so there’s no worry about it not lasting for many years.
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.
