Book Description
With more than 150 color photographs, comprehensive text, and extensive resource
lists of recommended products, manufacturers, and retailers, Good Green Kitchens
is a must-have-whether taking small steps to a green kitchen, or planning a
thorough remodel. This newest book from green living advocate, Jennifer Roberts,
is loaded with inspiration and information for creating a dream green kitchen.
What makes a kitchen green? Good Green Kitchens shows that eco-friendly design
is a continuum that's shaded from light to dark green. At the light green end
are easy-to-do steps such as choosing less polluting paints or selecting
energy-efficient appliances. At the darker green end are strategies like using
certified or reclaimed wood, consciously choosing to simplify or downsize, or
using the kitchen project as a launching point for greening the whole house.
Good Green Kitchens gives the low-down on what's green and what's not when it
comes to kitchen design. It includes: up-close profiles of beautiful, green
kitchens and the people who created them; tips for environmentally responsible
redecorating, remodeling, and building from the ground up; in-depth chapters on
greener alternatives for floors, cabinets, countertops, and appliances;
strategies for greening the whole house; tips for keeping costs in check; and much more.
