Reclaimed Materials are Popping Up in Kitchens

As people look for ways to ‘green up’ their lifestyles, the kitchen is emerging as an easy place to do that with reclaimed materials. What began as a trend to use marble and granite on the counter has grown into interest in alternative reclaimed materials for beautiful countertops.

Restaurant supply stores are a surprising place to find highly functional fixtures without breaking the bank. This goes hand in hand with the underground trend to replicate some elements of industrial design. Sinks are a favorite because they tend to be deeper. Industrial sinks are also favorable because they are difficult to damage. Other favorite restaurant supply reclaims include; spray hoses, stainless steel countertops, and built in espresso stations.

Countertops and cupboards are a favorite place to incorporate reclaimed wood, glass, and stone surfaces. If used as countertops, the surfaces are usually highly polished and finished with a food-safe seal. Creative designers are even taking worn-down heirloom tables and converting them to functional islands.
