Kitchen Remodeling on a Budget
You can avoid breaking your budget by allowing the All Eco Design Center to carefully design, plan and execute your vision. Whether your budget is big or small, we will ensure that your project stays within your limits. From conception to completion, we make sure your kitchen remodeling project is something you can enjoy rather than worry about.
Kitchen remodeling is one of the best ways to increase the value of your home and make this common gathering place more functional, efficient and beautiful. Though kitchen remodeling can carry a large price tag, it is more practical to think about the new design as an investment. The cost of remodeling your kitchen can vary according to a number of different factors. At the All Eco Design Center, we strive to find the most sustainably sourced products that are also the most affordable.
Aspects to Consider:
Start by making a priority list for your designs, which will often include the things about your kitchen that make you absolutely crazy. Maybe it’s the color of the cabinets and countertops, or that the faucets, sink and appliances are outdated. Perhaps your countertops don’t give you enough space to cook or your cupboards don’t have enough storage. Maybe you’ve always dreamed of a gourmet cooking space with a kitchen island or deep sinks? By making a priority list or a “must have” list, you can ensure these key items are incorporated in your design.
Eco-Friendly Kitchen Design Ideas
Bamboo The latest in environmentally friendly kitchens includes fast-growing bamboo. The material makes great cutting boards, backsplashes and flooring.
Cork This renewable resource is made from the bark off a tree. It’s also sound-absorbing, hypoallergenic and resistant to mold and mildew, making it an excellent choice for kitchens.
Recycled glass or stone-chipped composite countertops These countertops resemble granite, are eco-friendly and are just as durable.
Lighting To cut down on lighting costs, try using Leds. They cut energy use by 50 percent. Whenever possible, incorporate natural light into your kitchen design to brighten up your space and reduce your electrical bill.
Top and bottom freezer/refrigerator units These are more energy-efficient than side-by-side models because not as much cold air escapes.
Convection ovens This type of oven uses a fan to drive heat rapidly from source to food so it cooks it 25 percent faster than a conventional oven.
