Savvy has hated the idea of a green kitchen since that unpleasant moment in her childhood when “avocado” was introduced as an appliance color. She’s decidedly more tolerant of the idea of a “green” kitchen when it looks as good as any in the new Keener Kitchen Showroom. Known for their custom cabinetry, Keener now offers options that conform with the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. That means woods that have been harvested sustainably and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. Recycled and reclaimed fiberboard. Plywoods that are formaldehyde-free for better indoor air quality. Even cements and glues that are non-toxic and non-carcinogenic. Now if only they offered flooring that extended the five-second rule to five minutes. Don’t miss: The lovely distressed walnut and rustic cherry cabinets. Savvy also was very impressed with Keener’s work on ADA-compliant kitchens. 2101-B Greenspring Dr., Timonium, 410-560-0288
