Incorporating Sustainability Into Your Home Reno

Family-Friendly Transitional Kitchen Renovation

Herb Garden – Calling all green thumbs! Having a personal herb garden is a great way to source some local produce and infuse fresh flavor into your cooking. Herb gardens can also a great way to get young, curious minds involved in the kitchen. As a bonus, the greenery will bring some natural brightness into your space.
Energy Efficient Lighting, Appliances & Tech – LED lighting has become the new standard in lighting. These bulbs are cost-effective, have a long lifespan, and are available in a wide range of colors. When the time comes to select appliances, look for appliances that are ENERGY STAR Certified. These appliances reduce operating while not sacrificing performance. During your reno process, consider bringing some smart home tech into your home. Smart thermostats are intelligent tools that create a home experience unique to your lifestyle while also working to reduce energy costs.
Consider Bamboo, Quartz & Reclaimed Wood – Materials such as Bamboo, Quartz and Reclaimed Wood are trending. These materials require less environmental resources than other options, while remaining effortlessly stylish. When choosing your cabinetry, flooring and countertops consider these materials not only for their style but also their environmental impact.
Windows – Incorporating windows into your renovation can be a great way to draw in more natural light into your space. There are several different options available to ensure your windows and doors are energy-efficient, our renovation team can assist in making recommendations that would be the best fit for you. Selecting natural-fiber window coverings can also help with controlling energy usage.
Compost & Recycling Bins – We get it – several disposal bins in the kitchen can look cluttered – but our designers have great solutions to keep everything easy to reach, but out of sight.
Donate Your Old Cabinetry – If your cabinets are still in good condition, just no longer your style, consider donating them to charity. Legacy Kitchens is a proud partner of Habitat for Humanity who will pick up your old cabinets, issue you a tax receipt and repurpose them within the local community.
