The cost-of-living crisis continues to be front of mind for nearly everyone.

In a bid to save money and in some cases, be more sustainable, we’re all keener than ever to create a home that is energy efficient. As the kitchen is the place where we spend most of our time the other end of something operated by gas or electricity, it’s the best place to start.

Here are some ideas that might help.

Energy-efficient appliances.

Choosing your appliances wisely is crucial to ensure long-term energy efficiency.

Although they may cost a little more in the first place, opting for models that use less water or power could save you so much more in the long run.

Neff's Eco50 dishwasher option, for example, is designed to clean with less water and heat.

Tumble dryers have a bad reputation for racking up energy bills, so we always advise to opt for a heat pump option with an A+++ rating. We're fans of Hotpoint for their value-for-money range, so the initial purchase is a little easier on the wallet too.

Choose water-saving taps and consider a hot water tap

A water-saving tap, like Blanco’s Eco Flow, adds air bubbles into the stream without affecting the pressure.

A hot tap can deliver near-boiling water instantly, but it comes with a hefty price tag. That’s why we recommend the Insinkerator model which is 25% cheaper than its better-known counterpart. It also boils at 98 degrees rather than 100, offering further savings. Of course, these appliances provide many other space and time-saving benefits.

Install a double sink instead of one big sink.

Double sinks are a great way to save on hot water, as the smaller bowls take less filling up. They’re more convenient too.

Creating an energy and water-efficient kitchen is a growing priority, so we hope these ideas help whether you’re investing in a whole new kitchen or just looking to make some future savings on your existing one.
