As a general contractor at Trinity Builders here in Vail Colorado going green has been a major priority these days.There has never been more demand for eco-friendly kitchen remodeling especially since it’s cost effective and great for the environment here in Colorado.
Although environmentally friendly, or ‘green’ kitchen projects are usually perceived as more expensive remodeling projects, kitchen cabinet refacing can offer the homeowner the opportunity to cost effectively remodel or renovate their kitchen while meeting very eco-friendly environmental standards.I have come up with 4 easy options that homeowners should consider and take advantage of for their future kitchen remodel project.
Green Kitchen Option 1: Reduce:
By only replacing the cabinet drawers and doors and refacing the cabinet boxes, cabinet refacing uses much less wood than new cabinetry, which conserves and preserves our woodlands.There are also certain species of wood that are considered green that can be used in addition.
Green Kitchen Option 2: Reuse:
By reusing the existing cabinet boxes as apposed to discarding them, you avoid adding hundreds of pounds of wood to garbage. Additionally, since the original cabinet boxes are being utilized, the emission of urea-formaldehyde resins sometimes found in new plywood is avoided.
Green Kitchen Option 3: Recycle:
Here at Trinity Builders we are proud to work with manufacturers who are committed to recycling and going green across the board.There are many suppliers here in Colorado who exclusively use recycled material in all of their products.
Green Kitchen Option 4: Reface:
Cabinet refacing is an excellent option for your kitchen remodel.It’s very cost effective and is very good for the environment.The process saves precious wood and reduces waste.
