Sustainable Kitchen Makeover
This kitchen got an environmentally conscious makeover.
Homeowners Brian Phillips and Ed Scherer made some changes to their kitchen to allow for a more spacious, energy-efficient spot for cooking and entertaining. They replaced their old cabinets with custom-built cabinetry made from maple, an indigenous, renewable resource. Smaller, energy-efficient appliances were also added to the room, including a hot water on demand system that reduced electricity bills by 30 per cent. The back wall was replaced by beautiful insulated glass doors that flood the space with natural light and also retain heat.
