Trending on Remodelista: Kitchens and Sustainability, 3 Smart Ideas

October 18, 2019

The editors at Remodelista and The Organized Home have some great ideas for how to be sustainable when it comes to kitchen design.  Here, some examples from this week’s posts:

The Forever Kitchen

Instead of throwing out a totally functional kitchen, make do. Chessa Osburn&#8\2\17;s little cabin on the water has been in the family for decades. It&#8\2\17;s the same as it ever was—aside from upkeep, very little has changed—and that&#8\2\17;s how they like it.
