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.
Sometimes 4” or 5” of wall depth is all you need to go from chaos to uber-organized. This wall of hooks for pots and pans proves this. More accessible than they would be crammed into a cupboard or deep drawer, these pots make very efficient use of what would otherwise be wasted wall space. This unique and wildly efficient cup/mug hanger simply slides onto your existing shelf. It requires no screws or any other assembly. This is a highly effective use of the “dead space” that inevitably falls in the top 1/3 of most cupboards.
Install a metal bar directly under your cabinets and throw on some S-hooks – viola! You’ve just freed up a couple of “miscellaneous” drawers. You know the ones – the ones that are so full with oddly shaped items that they’re hard to open and, once open, it takes a while to find the item you actually need. I love how this idea can integrate easily into any style of kitchen. Taking two minutes to install a tension curtain rod in a kitchen cupboard (think: under the kitchen sink) will reap major rewards when you find you now have an organized, sanitary place for your kitchen cleaner spray bottles. You could even use the rod to drape cleaning cloths so you have everything in the same place for some quick cleanup.
Mix and match different chair styles, even considering completely different types of seating. For instance, you could add a bench to the mix for a stylish and eclectic idea. A good tip when matching various styles of chairs is to find something that unites at least some of the chairs to the table. For instance, a dark wooden chair can match the dark wooden table. Another good tip when ensuring your dining chairs work well with the specific room’s décor is to match the chairs in color to something else in the room. This could be yellow chairs that match cheerful yellow pendant lights, for example. The colors do not have to match exactly: a bit of contrast works well.
