Homeowners Choose Eco-Friendly Products for a Kitchen Remodel to Save Money

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 16, 2016) - Today's manufacturers offer many great products for kitchen remodels that not only integrate with technology, but have environmental benefits. Flooring and countertops are made of recycled materials or sustainable products, while appliances can be more energy-efficient and cut down on utility use. Homeowners are encouraged to check out modern options prior to a home remodel when updating their kitchen or bathroom.

When it comes to flooring, cork makes a great addition to a kitchen remodel. Trees are not damaged in the cork extraction process, and it is a comfortable and warm surface for the kitchen. In addition, it comes in many different styles and is affordable. When sealed and treated correctly, it's waterproof.

Marble and granite are outdated for countertops. IceStone makes exquisite countertops out of recycled cement and glass which are completely safe for use in any home. ECO by Cosentino takes old porcelain and turns it into new products for bathroom and kitchen remodel. Recycled surfaces come in many different styles and colors to coordinate with flooring, cabinets, and personal style.

Appliances which are more than 10 years old benefit from an update. Newer products with the ENERGY STAR label feature modern designs that use less electricity and water. Lower utility bills offset the initial cost of new refrigerator or dishwasher. New lighting options use up to 80 percent less energy than incandescent lights, last longer, and do not have special disposal needs.

Eco-friendly kitchen and bathroom fixtures can often reduce water use up to 50 percent in today's home. Instead of being clunky and outdated, these faucets are sleek and modern to fit into any home. Automatic faucets are one sustainable option that many families are installing to reduce disease transmission and save money on water use. It's easy to promote sustainable living by choosing eco-friendly products which prevent unused water from going down the drain.

When renovating a room, homeowners should also check out thermal windows and energy efficient doors, which offer better insulation and noise-pollution reduction. Eco-friendly paints are made from natural substances and do not have the toxicity of regular paints which pollute the indoor and outdoor air. Homeowners have more options than ever before when it comes to going green during a remodeling project.
