What’s the most important environmental problem with a conventional kitchen remodel?

Energy consumption is the biggest problem, followed very closely by bad ventilation and bad lighting.

The most energy-intensive room in the house is the kitchen. The number one problem with conventional kitchen remodels is oversized and energy-inefficient appliances.  The U.S. Green Building Council’s “10 Ways to Make Your Kitchen More Resource Efficient” offers suggestions on finding the appropriate sized appliances and other tips to save money and energy in your kitchen remodel.

What environmental problems are associated with using a conventional kitchen?

Energy is often wasted as the result of poor appliance choices, including dishwashers that can use way more water than is actually needed per wash. The paint and stain used for walls and cabinetry often contain toxic chemicals that are constantly emitting.

Many flooring and insulation materials contain formaldehyde which is toxic to the human body, and overconsumption of energy due to poor natural lighting and ventilation are quite common. Poor ventilation also leads to poor air quality.

The supplies you use to clean with are also a big factor; ammonia and bleach are toxic chemicals, and can be replaced with environmentally friendly cleaning products that work just as well.

What are the health benefits of the green remodeling process, and of using a green kitchen?

Having a well-ventilated and naturally lit kitchen will have an immediate effect on your mental well-being. The physical health benefits come from not being exposed to harmful chemicals, which do have an effect on our bodies.

Is there scientific evidence for these health benefits?

Yes, even though this are could use more study and resources the fact is that there are numerous studies that have been and are still being conducted that show the connection between hazardous chemical exposure and mental impairment and/or disabilities. Check out Green Building Costs and Financial Benefits, a report from the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative for more information.

How does the green approach affect maintenance and operating costs?

Whenever possible we are using repurposed materials which save you money. Energy efficient appliances; your freezer, dishwasher, and microwave will all of course have a much lower operating cost. 

With a plentiful amount of natural lighting there is less need to turn the lights on, and finally using non-toxic cleaning agents and having good ventilation can reduce the risk of respiratory illnesses.

What are some of your favorite innovations or design ideas for a green kitchen?

Double paned, argon insulated windows are a great energy saver and windows traditionally lose a lot of energy.

Having a composting container near a food prep area is a great way to cut down on your waste stream; compost can then later be used to fertilize your garden; a dish-drawer dishwasher, which is great for smaller loads.
