David: Sisters Eileen and Linda Yamoto need a new kitchen.
Eileen: Here’s our kitchen.
David: It’s a huge kitchen. It has got lots of potential.
Eileen: There’s no color in here.
David: Not a lot of color we’ve got white and beige.
Eileen: We would really like an Asian install as a kitchen.
Linda: We’re looking something sustainable.
Eileen: I think using sustainable products is the only way to go.
David: Eco-friendly and Asian inspired is going to make her one beautiful kitchen.
We are going to a manufacturing company that green sustainable countertops.
James: Everything we do is made with 100% recycled glass, very comparable with the granite in terms scrap resistance, stain resistance, heat resistance.
David: And the best part about this whole thing is that it’s green products, sustainable. It’s not hurting the earth at all.
James: It’s the most sustainable countertop product you could get.
David: Alright ladies I have had a few days to think about what we’ve talked about in the first meeting and I want to give you guys some options. We’re going to go with our floor first so what I have chose is a cork flooring. It’s green, it’s sustainable.
Linda: Look at that one.
Eileen: I like this one.
David: You guys like this one. Now we’re going to look at countertops. These are absolutely.
Eileen: Oh wow. I think this looks brilliant.
Linda: Oh wow. I think this looks great.
David: They look beautiful. They give a very warm flooring and then we have a very cool countertop.
David: The new cork flooring is—cork actually comes from the bark of the cork tree that’s harvested every 10 years and instead of hurting the tree it actually makes the cork grow in faster and stronger. The countertops have just arrived. This is where a lot of our budget went. These counters will run about the same as high end stone.
Danielle is painting the walls blue. It’s going to give the room a very tranquil feel.
Blue and orange are a compliment and a combination of the two is going to make a big impact. The kitchen doesn’t have a cohesive look, there’s like 3 or 4 different cabinet frames we need to change that. Instead of replacing all the cabinets we’re going to repaint it. It’s always a great way to save money.
We’re going to cover up the insides with bamboo, bamboo is common in Asian design and it is also a sustainable product. So I love the bamboo I think it’s absolutely beautiful but I want it to get a little bit darker.
Danielle: This is just tinted wax and it’s just a dark brown, look see.
David: Another thing about using wax is that it’s so easy to apply. What we’re using is a rag to wipe it on and then take off the excess. I love doing the Asian inspired rooms, I think it’s going to make a huge impact.
Take a look at your new kitchen.
Linda: Oh my god!
Eileen: Oh my god!
David: We fixed your cabinets.
Eileen: It’s plywood bamboo.
David: Yes and it’s all renewable, it’s reusable, it’s sustainable. Look at your beautiful recycled glass countertops. Aren’t they stunning?
Eileen: I am so pleased that David is willing to work with sustainable products and he really took it to heart and it makes me really proud.
