Evangelist RdEclectic Kitchen, London
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Think bigThe designers of this kitchen have used a whole host of upcycling ideas. Reclaimed floorboards have been turned into cupboard doors, bricks form the sides of the units, and the wooden island in the middle is an old butcher’s block, with scaffold poles forming a hanging rail for pots and pans. The result is a unique kitchen that shows just what can be done with an imaginative approach to reusing materials.Undertaking a big renovation?

‘There was very much a reuse and reclaim approach to the design,’ explains Sebastian. This is particularly so in the multi-functional space at the back of the house, where the exposed brickwork is made up from what was the garden wall, as well as reclaimed London stock to maintain period character.In the centre of the kitchen area, the chunky wooden island is a reclaimed butcher’s block over which scaffolding poles have been erected to form a hanging rail for pots and pans.
