With more than 150 color photographs, comprehensive text, and extensive resource lists of recommended products, manufacturers, and retailers, Good Green Kitchens is a must-have―whether taking small steps to a green kitchen, or planning a thorough remodel. This book from green living advocate, Jennifer Roberts, is loaded with inspiration and information for creating a dream green kitchen.
What makes a kitchen green? Good Green Kitchens shows that eco-friendly design is a continuum that’s shaded from light to dark green. At the light green end are easy-to-do steps such as choosing less polluting paints or selecting energy-efficient appliances. At the darker green end are strategies like using certified or reclaimed wood, consciously choosing to simplify or downsize, or using the kitchen project as a launching point for greening the whole house.
Good Green Kitchens gives the low-down on what’s green and what’s not when it comes to kitchen design. It includes: up-close profiles of beautiful, green kitchens and the people who created them; tips for environmentally responsible redecorating, remodeling, and building from the ground up; in-depth chapters on greener alternatives for floors, cabinets, countertops, and appliances; strategies for greening the whole house; tips for keeping costs in check; and much more.
