Palette




Thanks to a surge in demand, homeowners can find eco-friendly kitchen products to suit any style, says Margie McCulloch of Red Pepper Kitchen + Bath in Boulder. Thinking of remodeling your kitchen? McCulloch has two pieces of advice: first, opt for energy-efficient appliances, indicated by the Energy Star label. (At our altitude, choose an induction cooktop, which doesn’t lose heat.) Second, select cabinets that have water-based finishes and are designated NAUF—no added urea formaldehyde—to protect your indoor air quality.
