The kitchen is where we spend most of our time when we are at home. It also accounts for much of a home’s energy use. Both of these factors make kitchens targets for green upgrades.
Upgrading to Energy Star appliances is the number one change homeowners make to have a more environmentally friendly kitchen. However, what about your kitchen cabinets?
If you want a kitchen face lift, but you want to stay green. Consider refacing or refinishing kitchen cabinets rather than replacing them. Cabinet refacing and refinishing eliminates the raw materials, energy use, and waste in building new cabinets. Cabinet refacing and refinishing also eliminates using land fill space in dumping old cabinets.
There are even environmentally friendly, or green certified paints and stains you could use when refinishing and refacing your existing kitchen cabinets.
