Kitchens by Wedgewood offers a truly green product because we want more than just our cabinets to last, we want the world to last too. European cabinets use less wood material overall due to the absence of a face frame, and we take all the steps to make sure our impact on this planet isn’t detrimental to its health. We offer our services to the Littleton, Denver, and Boulder areas because we know you care where your cabinets come from and if they’re responsibly sourced.
Like most residents in the Littleton, Denver, and Boulder areas, our Kitchens by Wedgewood remodeling experts are ready for anything, whether it’s a tiny bathroom that comes with big ideas or a home office that needs some serious work done before you can get any work done. We look at cabinetry like a gallery owner views art — it’s a point of pride that our work will last a lifetime, make your unique vision a reality, and ultimately add value to your Littleton, Denver, and Boulder area home.
Cabinet Doors & Drawer Fronts
The most environmentally conscious choice is to use a recycled or reclaimed lumber, such as barn wood. Our wood veneer doors use a substrate with no added urea-formaldehyde. Additionally, rapidly renewable products such as bamboo or lyptus are great options as they have a harvest cycle of fewer than ten years and are grown in highly productive plantations that utilize sustainable forestry practices. Another viable option is to use domestic hardwoods (Cherry, Maple, Birch, Alder & Oak) these products are replanted in proportion to what is harvested, creating no deforestation. Hardwood that is Forestry Stewardship Council Certified (FSC) is available on request for our customers in the Littleton, Denver, and Boulder areas.
Wedgewood drawer boxes are made from European Beech. Europe’s forests are increasing at two times the rate of North American Forests and are certified by the European Forestry Council as a sustainable product. These dovetail boxes are also finished with an environmentally responsible water-based topcoat.
Consider a less material-intensive natural finish to complement the natural characteristics inherent in your wood doors and fronts. Another solution is a water-based topcoat with no HAP’s and traces of VOC’s. This water-based finish is very light and opaque and would probably require a stain before the topcoat is applied.
We are proud to distribute countertops that are green. For example, icestone is a recycled concrete and glass product available in many colors, and soapstone is a naturally green product that doesn’t use harsh chemicals to seal or polish it.
