Sustainable Kitchen Ideas

Reclaimed and natural materials make you feel at one with nature but remember that natural materials don't always equal eco-friendly! Try to go for man-made materials that mimic the look of stone and wood to reduce the environmental impact of your countertops and tiles.


- Products made from recycled materials
- Products made from renewable resources like bamboo

- Materials with low embodied energy (the energy required to produce a product)

Additionally, choose energy-efficient appliances and long-lasting cookware. Many common kitchen appliances such as dishwashers and refrigerators use a lot of energy. Look for the Energy Star label when shopping for finishes for your new kitchen design!

Ideas for a Sustainable Bathroom

Want a bathroom design that looks like a luxury spa? You can have the polish and finish of a magazine photoshoot all while saving energy and money.

Consider sustainable upgrades like low-flow plumbing and energy-efficient lighting. Want to give your walls a splash of color? Use low VOC (volatile organic compounds) or VOC-free paint. This eco-friendly option has less impact on air quality and reduces allergy-inducing toxins. You can also buy VOC-free wallpaper!

For your vanity, consider reclaimed wood. Using recycled materials is great for sustainability because no new materials were created with toxin-emitting machinery. If you're going the DIY route, you could use something you already own like a short bookcase or nightstand as a vanity.
