Kitchen is the most used room in any house. You can make it an eco-friendly area by keeping these tips in mind:

1 Kitchen cool: Kitchen is the most used room in any house. Make it as green as possible. Try to accommodate a small kitchen garden as well.

2 Natural light: Position the natural lights at the work surfaces, like the kitchen, study, dining rooms, and use windows wherever possible.

3 Timely check: Check the efficiency of all the appliances regularly. If they are not working properly they’ll utilise more energy than otherwise needed.

4 Save energy: Use energy saving LED bulbs, and opt for energy efficient appliances.

5 Reduce emission: Opt for furniture made of water based lacquer systems — they contribute to reduction of emission. Make sure that these lacquer surfaces are toxically and physiologically safe, too.
