A new trend is sprouting up in luxury kitchen design that you may not have thought of before; people are installing surfaces in their kitchens that are made out of recycled materials. These reclaimed, luxury surfaces tell a story. The use of these surfaces is also more sustainable than the use of new materials in home building and home remodeling. There are many surfaces in the kitchen where you can implement the use of stylish reclaimed materials.
Potential Spots for Reclaimed Surfaces in Kitchens Include:
- Kitchen Backsplash
- Kitchen Accent Wall
- Kitchen island countertops
Examples of Reclaimed Surfaces:
- Ceramic tile
- Salvaged wood
- Recycled glass
- Mosaics made out of recycled tile
- Upcycled furniture
Reasons to Install Reclaimed Surfaces:
Recycled surfaces tell a unique story that cannot be replicated elsewhere. Reclaimed materials inspire creativity and make an ordinary surface into an interesting narrative. For example, a kitchen backsplash created with upcycled bricks from an older building will be a permanent reminder of memories of that time and place.
Featuring a reclaimed surface in your kitchen is also an opportunity to showcase your hobbies and interests while retaining a luxurious kitchen environment. For example, if you love craft projects, you may reclaim an old dresser into furniture for kitchen storage. If you love skate boarding, you may desire a kitchen backsplash made out tile constructed out of reclaimed skateboards like those from Art of Board.
Also, consider how your kitchen appliances and kitchen accessories will complement the reclaimed surfaces in the kitchen design. For example, stainless steel range hoods from Range Hoods Inc are constructed out of full stainless steel; the color and texture of the stainless steel breaks up the kitchen design and adds a visual focal point. For example, an island range hood mounted from the ceiling above a kitchen island adds a focal point for viewers of the kitchen. The range hood will also frame the reclaimed countertop on the island.
Bring fun into the kitchen with artisan, reclaimed surfaces that are both modern and unique. Have fun making your kitchen one-of-a-kind with these sustainable and recyclable materials.
