Designing a More Environmentally Friendly Kitchen

Concern for the health of the environment is not a new concept, but it is one that is taking hold when it comes to remodeling existing homes. Below are a few ideas for adding a few environmentally friendly features to your kitchen space.

Incorporate Natural Lighting

Natural lighting is healthier and uses less electricity than artificial lighting. Consider adding skylights, when possible and adding wider windows. LED lighting uses less energy and provides better light, if it is not possible to increase natural lighting in your kitchen space.

Create Better Air Ventilation

Indoor air is considered to be twice as polluted as outside air. It is essential to find ways to bring fresh air into your kitchen. Incorporate some type of ventilation system that will offer a good air exchange when updating your kitchen.

Use Energy Star Appliances

Energy Star appliances have been tested and rated to use much less energy than other contemporary models. Saving energy is one of the best ways to help the environment. Energy Star rated appliances come in many styles and run as efficiently and powerfully as any other.

Avoid Stains, Paints and Products That Emit Toxins

Cupboards, countertops and flooring can all be coated or created with products that emit toxic substances, such as formaldehyde. Seek out products that are environmentally friendly and will not push out toxic substances that can be harmful to you, your family and pets.

Avoid Building a Kitchen Island

Rather than having a kitchen island built, try taking an old stand or dresser and place it on rollers. You can cover it with cutting board material and have the perfect kitchen island. It saves an older piece of furniture from ending up in the landfill. You will get the extra counter space and storage you need and feel great about it.

Re-purpose As many Items As Possible

Why buy brand new decor from the store when you can find used items for re-purposing? You can have a lot of fun exploring flea markets and thrift stores to find the right items for storage or decoration. You might even be fortunate enough to find older copper-bottom pans with original patina. It will be an attractive display item that your friends and family will love.

The Utility Poles

Utility poles hold up cables that transmit fiber-optic data and electricity from their sources to your home. They are very important to the modern society’s infrastructure and are made from specific types of pressure-treated wood to protect them from insect damage, rot, and the elements.

Southern Yellow Pine

Southern Yellow Pine is one of the most common types of wood used in the production of utility poles. The name Southern Yellow Pine refers to a number of yellow pine species commonly found in the Southern United States. The Southern Yellow Pine is one of the most common types of wood used in different types of construction. Despite its feathery weight, Southern Yellow Pine is very dense and strong.

Douglas Fir

This is a coniferous tree that normally grows all over the Western United States and some parts of Mexico. This tree can remain steady even when the trunk has been cut deep. Douglas fir is known for its capacity to put up with huge loads without cracking, bending or breaking due to the pressure, making it one of the best wood materials for utility poles.

Jack Pine

Jack Pines are less common than the southern yellow pines but they are also used to manufacture utility poles. It is a species of pine that is common in the entire Canada and some parts of the Midwestern United States. Jack pines have similar advantages as southern yellow pines. However, they have a lot of knots and tend to decay slightly faster. This makes them less suitable for building purposes.

Lodge Pole Pine
Lodge pole pines are more common in British Columbia and in the Rocky Mountains of the U.S. This tree has similar features as Southern yellow pine. It is straight, tall, and lightweight, making it suitable for making utility poles. On the flip side, lodge pole pine’s bark is a bit thinner than normal pine, which makes it more vulnerable to damage from harsh weather conditions and fires.

Western Red Cedar

Western Red Cedar is prevalent in the coastal parts of the Pacific Northwest. This type of wood is the most economical for the production of utility poles. In addition, Western Red Cedar has a higher-than-average ability to resist insect damage and decay. There is no need for wood utility poles suppliers to add preservative chemicals to the wood and maintain it, which translates to significant savings.a

White And Gold Theme

We just arrived from a meeting in Ladislawa; we talked about the upcoming Christmas party of the kids to be held on December 3 and 4. On our way home, I saw some Christmas Parole selling in the street, I stopped and asked how much was it? It was a bit expensive, I and Mj talked about it and she said she thinks she can manage to put up Christmas lights outdoor and just forget buying about that Outdoor Christmas Decor, in that way we can save up some bucks so maybe we will choose what she suggested.

Just recently we already put up the Christmas tree, it is almost finish, and I think I need to buy more flowers with color white and gold, yes that’s our theme this year. I will also buy 3 mistletoe.

Here’s our Christmas Tree on 2016:
