If you’re interested in a kitchen renovation, consider reducing your carbon footprint while getting the kitchen you’ve always wanted. While there are a whole host of environmentally friendly materials and construction methods, it’s important to understand the pros and cons of a “green” kitchen renovation.

 A Green Kitchen Renovation May End Up Costing You More “Green”

 When you decide to look at the more environmentally friendly materials for your kitchen renovation, you need to understand that this choice will come with a series of costs. Many environmentally friendly materials and appliances cost more in terms of material costs but also can be more challenging to install. This can lead to increased labor costs as well as material costs. This should not be a problem if you’re looking at your kitchen renovation as a long-term investment. Still, it’s essential to realize that you may need to pay a premium for the most environmentally friendly kitchen possible.
