The modern world is being exposed to green and sustainable designs. These concepts are now being considered an important part of architecture, as well as interior, industrial and furniture design.
When it comes to kitchen interior design, there are many aspects that must be taken into consideration. To begin with, one of the most important aspects of kitchen interior design is proper circulation. Proper circulation is essential for users in order to have the freedom of movement and enough space to perform tasks properly.
Another important aspect that all kitchens must be based on is the triangle concept. The triangle concept means distributing the electrical kitchen equipment (Oven, Fridge, and Sink) properly in the form of a triangle to make it easily accessible.
Moreover, the use of the materials and finishes is also important. When it comes to choosing the materials and finishes for your kitchen, you can choose alternative options that are sustainable and use environmentally friendly sources instead of chemical ones. For instance, when you want to design the kitchen countertops, you can choose recycled compressed materials that look elegant and are green at the same time. These sustainable countertops include compressed bamboo, quartz, wood, recycled glass, and concrete.
Compressed bamboo is very popular among sustainable countertops. It is known to grow rapidly, and it is natural and environmentally friendly. It has a long lifespan and can be reused over and over again. Bamboo also doesn’t contain harmful chemicals, and it’s safe for the users as well. It can be formed, colored, cut, and shaped into any desired form.
Recycled glass is also very sustainable in countertops. Recycled glass is mainly made up of aged terrazzo, which was previously used to create hard surfaces. It is also made out of a combination of aggregate (marble chips, glass chips, and concrete), then smoothed out with grinders and polishers after being put in place.
Furthermore, you can make your kitchen sustainable by also using new solar ovens that are powered by energy stored from solar panels. This technique can help in energy conservation, gas emission reduction, and it saves money in the long run. Therefore, it’s beneficial for the users and the environment.
You can also simply make your kitchen more sustainable by using organic wall paint, proper ventilation, and new sustainable resources instead of conventional ones.
Whether you are designing a new kitchen or renovating an old one, there are many new sustainable materials and resources that can be used and simple changes that can be done to make your kitchen’s interior sustainable for both the space and the users.
