Top 3 Reasons Why Green Cabinetry Should be at the Top of Your Remodeling List

If the idea of inviting formaldehyde, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other toxins into your home simply does not sit well, do not undertake your next kitchen remodel without adding green cabinetry to the shopping list. These cabinets are affordable, look great and allow you the same level of customization as other cabinetry. Moreover, it is easy to find the styles and functions that fit into your busy lifestyle.

Formaldehyde-free Cabinets

Standard cabinetry is frequently made of plywood or chipboard, which is held together with adhesives containing urea formaldehyde. B&R manufactures environmentally friendly kitchen cabinets that come in a wide variety of styles and woods. We are committed to using adhesives that do not contain this toxin.

No VOCs in the Varnish

The average cabinet is finished with a clear sealer that contains VOCs. Our green cabinetry is painted with water-based finishes. Whereas VOCs will emit toxic fumes for a long period of time, our cabinetry is safe. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has discovered that VOCs contribute to outdoor smog in addition to indoor air pollution. By going green when buying your new cabinets, you not only protect your indoor air quality but also the quality of the outdoor air.

Great Return on Investment

Kitchen cabinet remodels can offer a homeowner as much as a 77 percent to 91 percent return on investment of the initial costs in just the first year. Consumers know that environmentally-friendly building products lead to a healthier indoor environment and are willing to pay extra when buying a home that already has these types of cabinets installed. Even in the long term, a high-quality kitchen cabinet remodel can still return between 67 percent and 78 percent after having been in place for a few years.
