Environmental concerns are part of most kitchen designs. Energy Star appliances, WaterSense faucets and LED lighting are big considerations. Sustainable counter tops like Cambria and sustainable flooring like cork, wood and bamboo are also good eco friendly choices.

Sustainable flooring is prominent in kitchen design. Cork is being considered more and more as is the new linoleum. Porcelain tiles are a favorite choice in kitchens because they look like stone but are less expensive and easier to clean. Wood is still a favorite. "Nature" porcelain floor tile by Greenway.
