In this day and age, you hear everyone talking about “going green.” Whether you want to admit it or not, at some point everyone, from designers to homeowners, will be following with the green movement. It makes sense just by looking at the rate we are going for resource consumption. This model is simply not sustainable.
Sustainable design is a general term that describes environmentally conscious design techniques in the field of architecture and interior design. Conceptually, sustainability is allowing present generation to meet its needs without depriving later generations of a way to meet theirs. We need to take efforts to make our residential, commercial and institutional buildings sustainable. In residential buildings, the kitchen and bath are the activities that consume major amount of energy and water so it very important to focus on these activities while designing green homes.
