How to design an Eco-Friendly Kitchen?

“I’ll only agree to open plan if we go eco.” – Judith

It was wonderful to be part of this incredible open space transformation for our customer’s kitchen and living area in St Albans. Keeping the environment in mind was a top priority: from creating an eco-friendly design right down to installation process.

Eco-Friendly Kitchen

The walls were lined with 80mm thick Pavaflex, skimmed with Lime Plaster and painted with breathable paint.  Underfloor heating and tiled flooring, followed by our furniture which carries many certificates for helping towards protecting the environment for example, the Golden M award, Emission label A, awarded as a Climate Neutral Company by the DGM and many other environmental and health protection awards.

All this created a lovely atmosphere of harmony and nature framed by the flawless white satin matt doors and wood palette and undercut by a current of satin cobalt blue throughout – a striking feature of this space. Finished with Clean steel Miele ovens and warming drawer, Boro Pure X vending hob topped with Arenastone Grigio Venato.

This project is a great reminder that beautiful renovations can be kind to the earth at the same time as making a lovely living area to enjoy.

Are you interested in designing an eco-friendly kitchen? Here are some ideas to consider…

  • Repurpose or recycle existing furniture if you can.
  • Keep sustainable materials in mind for your décor choices.
  • Choose energy efficient kitchen lighting, fixtures and appliances.
  • Use VOC-free paint for a sustainable kitchen (paint that doesn’t contain volatile organic compounds)
  • Upgrade your sink faucets to touch-free to minimise water waste.
  • Get the design right: a sustainable kitchen needs careful and thoughtful planning so that it remains timeless and durable for the future.
