Cabinetry

Cabinets are a household essential, but that does not mean that consumers have to harm the environment. Instead of purchasing new cabinetry, scrap wood can be used to make shelves that can be used to store cups and plates. Scrap wood can also be sanded down to make beautiful cabinetry with a natural appearance.

If scrap wood is not an option, there are still environmentally friendly alternatives. Bamboo cabinetry is often safer for the environment for a couple of reasons. First, bamboo takes less time to reach the maturity that it needs to in order for it to be harvested, meaning that it will not become close to being extinct, like some trees are. Second, bamboo is often more durable than some woods, making this product ideal for home owners that want something that looks unique but lasts awhile.

Bamboo does still come from the environment so it may not be as environmentally friendly when compared to using scrap wood for shelves and cabinetry, but bamboo is a nice alternative to wood cabinetry.

Use Nature

The world is full of wonderful things that can help a home look unique, like the bamboo used for cupboards. Large tree branches can be used to make some new shelves for the living room. Need some rustic end tables? Use tree stumps instead of spending money on pricey glass and metal tables.

Home owners that love the appeal of flowers outside can up cycle a few concrete blocks to plant them in instead of spending money on products that will also harm the environment. These ideas aren’t just better for the environment; they are also a bit easier on the wallet.

Flowers can be used to liven up any living area. Homeowners can pick a bouquet of fresh grass and flowers, and then use their findings to decorate end tables and more throughout the home. This is also a great way to decorate according to season. Acorns will complement fall d├ęcor and pine cones can be used to add charm to a Thanksgiving table.

Furniture and carpet

Furniture and carpet can be environmentally friendly too. As more homeowners become interested in going green, more and more carpet retailers are offering more eco-friendly materials for carpet. Ditching the carpet all together is another great option.

Furniture is mostly made of wood, but up cycling some used furniture is always a great alternative to buying new. Thrift stores often have great deals, and some sand paper and a coat of fresh paint can make any piece of furniture look like a brand new addition to a living room or outdoor patio set.

Many people choose not to decorate their home in environmentally friendly ways because of the stereotype that it will be too expensive. Some products, like special lightbulbs, may be more expensive than the alternative, but lessening the carbon footprint that we leave behind on the earth is priceless. Homeowners that do not want to spend the extra money can still use these decorating tips to help their home be more green than ever before without have to empty their savings accounts.

White

White remains a more popular choice for areas that are going to be decked out in white, black and grey. These custom cupboards will coordinate perfectly with a modern home or complement an elegant look, making them a versatile choice that will help them last for years regardless of how many remodels a home sees or what style a homeowner prefers.

On the downside, white shows dirt easier than any other color. If the house is full of small children with dirty hands, homeowners are going to feel as though they spend half of their day scrubbing dirt off of the doors and drawers, particularly if they are place in high traffic areas. This color also shows dirt and dents easier than any other color, as well as imperfections like scratches. Homeowners with several children, or grandchildren, that are always in and out of the eating area may want to consider another option.

Black

Custom black rta cabinets will add a sleek look to any modern home. This color will not show every single smudge or fingerprint, letting homeowners wipe them down when they have the time to instead of when they can see the dirty smudges.

The primary downside to owning custom black cabinetry is that it tends to show scratches just as easily as white ones, if not more so. The only other con listed by consumers is that black is simply not as versatile as white. These will complement modern styles, but won’t look well if a homeowners wants to remodel and change everything over to a traditional style.

Grey

Custom grey rta cabinets may seem a bit outside of the box, but that is exactly what makes this color so popular. Instead of wood or going with a black and white, grey allows homeowners to showcase their unique personality and style. They also give the perfect combination of pros from both black and white. For example, they coordinate wonderfully with several different decorating schemes, from modern to elegant. Grey will not hide dirt as easily as black, but it won’t show dirt the same way that white does either. It doesn’t show scratches as much, but doesn’t completely hide them either.

Custom Grey kitchen cabinets give the perfect balance between the benefits and downfalls of black and white.

Wood

Wood kitchen cupboards come in a variety of colors, but the same basics of black white and grey can be applied to the shade of wood. For example, darker woods will show scratches easier, but they will not show dirt as well. Lighter colored wood is more versatile, and will stand the test of time as it coordinates perfectly with one remodel after another.

The important thing to consider when choosing wooden rta kitchen cabinets is the type of wood. Harder woods are usually suggested due to their durability.

Designing rta kitchen cabinets is a great way for couples to make their home look unique as they showcase their personality through every single detail of their home.
