Take your organizing skills to the next level by adding some hidden compartments! The outgoing mail, cookbooks, recipe cards, shopping lists and everything in between can fit right inside and stay off the counters, making for a cleaned and revived kitchen! We love mixing compartments too. A vase, bread basket and even a serving tray can all come together to create a perfect place to organize your spices and most used ingredients, as well as utensils! Use whatever you like to organize, but keep within a monochromatic theme. This will enhacen the clean and fresh vibe but also give your kitchen a contemporary, fashion-forward air about it as well.
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.
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.
