The trend of making use of old, worn materials or items is a must in green living. As you can see in the above image, a salvaged cabinet comes alive in the kitchen, giving it an interesting piece of furniture that could have been part of a living room in its previous life. By leaving salvaged items a little worn and torn, this further makes them unique creations in the kitchen, while preventing waste in the environment. Stone in the kitchen is always a great natural material, but you can also choose from stone countertops that are made from recycled materials. This takes the green initiative one step further. Stone can be trendy and colorful, as can be seen from the countertop in the above image that is made from recycled wine, beer and Vodka bottles.
Functional and fantastic – that’s what your kitchen should be. To achieve this, here are some must-have décor items that are beautiful while being useful. You might have shelves and cabinets in their usual spots, but a bit of shelving above the stove can come in really handy. You could place items that you need in easy reach, such as your favorite cookbook. This area is also the perfect place for a bit of décor. Colorful crockery or a vase of flowers on the shelves, for instance, can be a great idea. The best part is that you can add or remove items as you wish, depending on what kind of style you wish to have in your kitchen.
Mobile or portable kitchen islands are very great to have in homes with an open floor plan where the kitchen shares the same zone with the living space and maybe even some other areas. This means that the kitchen island can become part of any of the other spaces’ design as well. You can also use the kitchen island as a bar or an extension to the dining table. A kitchen island on wheels increases the versatility of the piece and gives you more freedom when using it. This island has a very intriguing design. It has a sleek metal frame with tall and thin legs with wheels and this simple design makes it lightweight and easy to relocate. Take out in the living room, in the dining room and even on the terrace.
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.
