The trend of making use of old, worn materials or items is a must in green living. As you can see in the above image, a salvaged cabinet comes alive in the kitchen, giving it an interesting piece of furniture that could have been part of a living room in its previous life. By leaving salvaged items a little worn and torn, this further makes them unique creations in the kitchen, while preventing waste in the environment. Stone in the kitchen is always a great natural material, but you can also choose from stone countertops that are made from recycled materials. This takes the green initiative one step further. Stone can be trendy and colorful, as can be seen from the countertop in the above image that is made from recycled wine, beer and Vodka bottles.
Small kitchen islands like this one are easier to relocate and move around. They can also serve multiple purposes. For example, this one could be a very nice side table or serving cart. If your kitchen island has a design that allows it to also be used as a table then putting wheels on it is that much more practical. You can easily move it around and sue as a dining table whenever you have guests coming over. Small kitchen islands give you the possibility of having more than one. In other words, instead of having one big island you can have two or three smaller ones and also use them individually whenever needed.
If you don’t want them near the ceiling or you think it’ll draw the space inward, then use a table. If you’ve created a makeshift island, then create a makeshift cabinet by hanging them up underneath! Use a coat rack or another thrifted piece as a pot rack. Grab some metal or brass hooks and then situate the piece according to your need. You can create a wall for your pots too. Instead of just hooking up a rack, create something a bit unique. A chalkboard wall, with each pot’s outline will make an artistic spin on the usual organization. Section out a nook to keep the pots and pans hung and accessible but without them in view. Use a space underneath the island, breakfast counter or cabinets.
