After years of tolerating an inefficient, outdated laundry and powder room, these Lake Forest homeowners were ready to make a change, but wanted to make sure they didn’t leave a large footprint in the process. Their new laundry and powder rooms are nearly 100-percent eco-friendly, featuring floor made from recycled slate roofing tiles, low-VOC paint, ESP-certified cabinetry, hardware made from recycled material, seagrass rugs, a high-efficiency washer and dryer and more. The new space also includes an area for bathing their two dogs.

Key Components:

Cabinets—Bertch, certified by the Environmental Stewardship Program, www.bertch.com
Hardware—Rocky Mountain hardware, made of recycle material in a local Midwest-area plant that is LEED certified, www.rockymountainhardware.com
Countertop—Richlite, fabricated using layers of paper derived from renewable or recycled resources, www.richlite.com/countertop
Backsplash—Urban Archaeology tile, composed of natural rocks, backing made of recycled plastic, www.urbanarchaeology.com
Flooring—Recycled slate roofing tiles
