More and more in our everyday lives we are aiming to lower our impact on the environment. From carrying reusable water bottles to simply turning off the water while brushing our teeth, small changes can add up to help the earth. There are also many small changes we can make within our homes to reduce waste that also happen to double as décor options! If you plan on revitalizing your kitchen this year, consider these eco-friendly décor tips:
- Mason Jars: The use of mason jars for DIY décor has become incredibly popular in recent years. For your kitchen, you can use mason jars to replace plastic storage bags and for drinks on the go, but they can also turn your kitchen into a rustic-looking, decluttered space. Remember, you can weigh your jars and take them with you for a package-free trip to the bulk section of the grocery store!
- Reusable dish rags: Why spend money on sponges that carry germs and need to be replaced often when you can clean your dishes with cloths you can wash right at home? Use less material by purchasing dish rags that fit the style of your kitchen. They will look nice, and you will spend less by not using as many paper towels and disposable sponges.
- Energy-efficient appliances: If you’re ready to replace your outdated refrigerator or dishwasher, opt for an energy efficient option. These options are great for the environment and your electric bill, but they also come in different styles to fit your décor.
- Low VOC paint: The easiest way to change the entire look of a room is to paint it. When choosing your paint color, look for one with a little to no VOC (volatile organic compounds) content. Low VOC paint is better for both your health and the atmosphere! Of course if you’re painting, it may also be time for a new countertop or backsplash, and we can help match your style.
While these are just small changes you can make in your kitchen, you can always look for similar options for other areas of your home. If you are remodeling your kitchen, contact us today at (610) 344-7700 to speak with one of our specialists about our large selection of stone and tile products.
