Wake Living Magazine, Fall 2010 Issue
Area experts agree that despite the economy, eco-friendlier living remains at the forefront of homeowners’ minds.
“There’s a definite demand for green materials,” says Becky Shankle, owner and chief visionary officer of Ecomodernism, a Raleigh-based kitchen design and installation business specializing in affordable green kitchens.
“People are very aware of the environment these days,” she adds. “Going green is one way to do their share for the planet, even if it’s indirect.”
While elements like bamboo, cork, quartz and recycled glass cost more, there are other ways to incorporate sustainability into the home, Shankle says. The company works closely with clients on eco-friendly, ready-to-assemble kitchens that can be customized to suit each family’s needs.
As for the future, she sees authenticity coming into play as more homeowners determine their unique style.
“Forget the Joneses. Make your space yours,” Shankle says. “If you like white, then go with white. If you don’t like clutter, then give everything a place to store.”
