As you’re making decisions regarding new kitchen tiles for your Middlesex home, it might be a good idea to start thinking about how you could make this part of the house more eco-friendly at the same time.
It could work out a lot cheaper making energy-efficient upgrades while renovating this space than if you waited and did it after all the work has been completed.
But what changes could you possibly make? Thinking about your materials is a good place to start and bamboo is one of the most environmentally friendly out there, mainly because it grows so very quickly. If you’re redoing the kitchen tiling on the walls, why not do the floor up at the same time?
Using recycled products and materials can also help you reduce your impact on the planet, so look out for glass and stainless steel that can be reused in this part of the house.
When it comes to painting and redecorating, choose water-based paints made using little or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or solvents. VOCs are harmful to both the planet and human health, so you’ll be looking after yourself and your family as well as the environment if you opt for this kind of paint.
As for kitchen appliances, opt for energy-efficient ones if you can since they are renowned for using lots of water. Luckily, there are lots of new products coming onto the market that make this particular shopping spree especially easy to complete.
