Quartz recently got a mention in our countertop design trends blog. More and more homeowners are starting to appreciate the beauty and utility of quartz for counters. This engineered stone material is far more sustainable than granite. While both quartz and granite are extracted from the earth, quartz is longer-lasting and recyclable while granite is not. Plus, the energy required to process granite is very energy-intensive.
Wherever possible, incorporate high-quality recycled materials into your sustainable kitchen remodeling project. Reclaimed wood can be repurposed into floors, countertops, cabinets, and more. In addition, recycled glass makes terrific light fixtures and countertops, as well.
Longevity in Design
Sustainability tends to focus on the longevity of something in order to reduce how often it will need to be replaced or repaired. It’s important to invest strategically in high-quality materials and installation jobs. Additionally, creating a timeless kitchen design, like one in a traditional style, will ensure your long-term satisfaction with the remodeled kitchen.
We can’t forget to mention to use energy-efficient lighting fixtures and appliances throughout your kitchen! The kitchen requires so much gas, electricity, and water every day. Energy-efficient appliances, LED lights, and water-conserving faucets and dishwashers all come together to reduce excessive energy consumption, as well as lower your utility bills.
