If you’re looking to bring some visual interest and a traditional vibe into your kitchen, think about introducing reclaimed wood. We’ve gathered a few ideas to get you started.
One of the best places to start is with the kitchen table. Bringing in a traditional farm table (which is easier to find than you’d think) will serve as a focal point and a conversation piece in the heart of your home. Or, go ahead and build your own table with reclaimed wood, which, as long as it’s structurally sound, will sand down and finish into something beautiful and unique. Using reclaimed wood to build shelving or cabinet fronts is another fine way to make your kitchen both traditional and unique. Architectural salvage shops are good places to find old wood; some people even re-use wine crates and older palettes.
If you don’t want to commit to old wood cabinets, using it as a contrasting feature on a kitchen island is a possibility. Or, if you want to go really big, reclaimed wood makes a great kitchen ceiling, and certainly, floor.
