An Ecofriendly Renovation Aided by Top Knobs

Top Knobs was recently featured in a Houzz article written by contributor Becky Harris. The article entitled, “Family Kitchen Smartens Up With a New Ecofriendly Renovation”¬†features a family with a passion for sustainability in Portland, Oregon.

The family hired Encircle Design and Build to help convert their kitchen into an ecofriendly space with some help from Top Knobs cabinetry hardware.

Before the transformation, the kitchen seemed disconnected to the rest of the house due to the dated cabinetry and wall colors. Because of limited cabinet space, pots and pans hung from the ceiling and clutter filled the countertops, making it an unfriendly environment for their two young children who loved spending time in the kitchen.

The new countertops that were installed were 30 inches wide instead of the original 12. New corner cabinets and a wraparound countertop allowed for additional storage space and a place for the children to finish their homework while their parents cooked.

To complete the look, designers used Top Knobs Square Knobs and Bar Pulls from the Nouveau III collection. The Square Knobs are 5/8″, while the Bar Pulls are¬†5 1/16″. The flat black finish accented the blue cabinetry perfectly, giving it a modern yet homey look.

To fulfill their promise of sustainability, all previous appliances were donated to a homeless shelter while the salvageable wood was donated to another nonprofit. Any items that could not be reused were responsibly recycled.
