Limiting your impact on the environment while embarking on a kitchen or bathroom remodel can seem like a daunting and expensive task, but it doesn’t have to be. Recent years have seen an increased interest in environmentally responsible practices. Despite the trend of going green, many homeowners are still reluctant to undergo an eco-friendly remodel because of the costs associated with environmentally responsible materials. We’re here to tell you that reducing your carbon footprint while creating your dream kitchen doesn’t have to break your budget.

As you’re choosing your countertops and flooring, there are a number of eco-friendly materials to research. Bamboo, stainless steel, and concrete are all known for their small carbon footprints. However, the environmental impact of these materials can quickly increase if they have to be transported across long distances. In these cases, locally-sourced materials will be the greenest option.
You don’t have to remodel your kitchen to go green. Updating your appliances and exterior doors can significantly decrease the energy your home uses.
