    Tips for Choosing Green Appliances

    Last updated 2 days 20 hours ago

    Green appliances not only make a softer impact on the environment, but also your bank account. When you shop for new appliances, look at the tag or sticker that describes its energy efficiency. There are a few general rules regarding an appliance’s efficiency. For example, washing machines that load from the front tend to be more environmentally friendly than those that load from the top. Similarly, side-by-side refrigerators and freezers are typically more energy efficient than those with freezers on top, and manual defrost freezers are typically more efficient than self-defrost freezers.

    Tips for Selecting the Best Bathroom Flooring for Your Needs

    Last updated 9 days ago

    There are many different popular styles of bathroom flooring that can offer visual appeal, nice textures, and durability. Depending on your desires, your ideal bathroom floor may be made of one of several different types of materials. Here is a brief overview of some of the most common types of bathroom flooring materials to help you choose the one that’s best for your needs. 

    Stone

    Natural stones such as marble, slate, granite, and limestone are popular materials for bathroom flooring. Different stones have varying color ranges, including shades of green, gold, red, blue, and creamy neutral colors. This type of tile is also available in a variety of textures, such as sandblasted, flamed, and cleft. Be aware, however, that natural stone tiles should be sealed and routinely cleaned for maximum effect and durability.

    Glass

    If you plan on using glass flooring, make sure it is slip-resistant. You can achieve slip-resistant glass floors by choosing textured tiles; textured glass tiles are typically durable as well. You can also create a safe bathroom floor by using a series of smaller glass tiles. This increases the amount of grout involved, which provides grip between slippery surfaces.

    Linoleum

    Linoleum is an excellent choice for bathroom flooring. It is less vulnerable than most flooring to dust, dirt, and microorganisms. Linoleum tends to look natural in the bathroom and contributes to modern as well as retro designs. If you are looking for easy installation and reliable aesthetic appeal, linoleum may be the best type of flooring for your bathroom needs.

    In addition to bathroom remodeling, Kitchens of Colorado provides cabinets, major appliances, and custom kitchen remodeling.

    Features to Look for When Choosing a Dishwasher

    Last updated 16 days ago

    Modern dishwashers provide a variety of luxuries that were not available just a few years ago. When you choose your new dishwasher, it is usually wise to invest in a high functioning product in order to save money in the long run. One of the most important features to look for in a new dishwasher is efficiency. It is worth it to spend more money in the initial purchase to save money on your energy bills over the following years. Many newer dishwashers are also quieter, which allows you to enjoy your dinner in peace while cleaning your dirty dishes. Rather than having an eyesore, you can now integrate your new dishwasher into your kitchen’s design. You can also look for smaller units that help to save space in the kitchen.

    A Guide to Choosing the Right Kitchen Countertops

    Last updated 20 days ago

    New kitchen countertops can reinvigorate your kitchen in several different ways. The perfect type of countertop is durable and easy to maintain while being visually pleasing. But with so many options to choose from, how do you know which kitchen countertops are perfect for your home? Here is your guide to choosing the right kitchen countertops.

    Granite

    If you are looking for a creative way to spruce up the look of your kitchen, you will enjoy the fact that each piece of granite looks different from the next. This popular countertop choice typically comes in neutral colors like beige and coral as well as shades of black and white. For kitchens with shinier designs, a granite countertop with a polished finish may be appropriate; this type of finish makes the stone look darker and provides a shiny characteristic. Alternatively, a honed finish offers a softer look.

    Engineered Stone

    Engineered stone is typically about the same price as granite. However, this type of countertop is extremely durable and easy to maintain. Engineered stone is also available in a more expansive array of colors than granite. If you are looking for a low maintenance countertop that can fit in with any design, engineered stone may be your best choice.

    Wood

    Many kitchens benefit from the cozy and warm atmosphere provided by wood countertops. In addition to creating a pleasant environment, wood countertops are also very easy to clean and maintain. Even scratches can be removed from the countertop by sanding. Protect your wood countertop from water damage by having it regularly oiled.

    Mixed Countertops

    Each different material comes with its own advantages, so many people choose countertops that have a combination of elements. Wooden sections for chopping, for example, are commonly inserted into marble or granite countertops in order to provide a multi-purpose countertop that suits your needs.

    If you are planning on remodeling your kitchen, call Kitchens of Colorado at (720) 420-1107. We provide a range of remodeling services, and our selection of major appliances, cabinets, and countertops is second to none.

Designing and installing a “green” kitchen can help you reduce electric, gas, and other utilities, which translates into lower monthly bills. Additionally, the ongoing use of a green kitchen brings little to no exposure to toxic chemicals such as paints and cleaning products and lower injury rates thanks to smaller and safer appliances.
