L O F TIndustrial Kitchen, London
We tried to recycle as much as we could.
The floorboards were from an old mill in yorkshire, rough sawn and then waxed white.
Most of the furniture is from a range of Vintage shops around Hackney and flea markets.
The island is wrapped in the old floorboards as well as the kitchen shelves.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Add a rustic finishThe wood cladding here gives the island a totally different look, proving how versatile timber can be. Recycled planks have been used to cover the unit, giving a rustic effect that works well with the utility-style fixtures and fittings in the rest of the kitchen. Something like this would be fairly straightforward to replicate on the front of an existing island, too.
Sift through salvage Some of the UK’s most exclusive homeware stores are selling battered old school desks and old factory furniture for hundreds of pounds. Go to the places they buy from: auction houses, car-boot sales and antiques fairs, and buy these highly coveted pieces before they’re ridiculously marked up. Most of the furniture shown in this stylish kitchen is sourced from vintage shops and flea markets.Explore ways to use vintage materials in a modern setting
What Houzzers are commenting on:
White walls can still be wonderful A peaceful atmosphere often involves white, but the key is using it only for the surrounds. This kitchen attains a cosy sense of character with the stripped wood surfaces and tan tones of the dining bench and leather-topped stools.
