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.
A little retro meets industrial meets vintage with some bar stools. This can create the perfect transition between two seemingly disparate spaces, if that’s what you need. If natural, earthy tones speak to you in general, then keep this look going in your bar stool choice. There are plenty of beautiful neutral bar stools out there…and you’ll know that, with its being neutral and all, you will love it in your home. Nothing blends in quite like acrylic, and bar stools made this way are no exception. This adds a sleek, contemporary, almost commercial feel to the bar space. Upholstered seats are, as a general rule, certainly more comfortable than their non-padded counterparts. But there are pros and cons when considering upholstery on a seat that sees more than its fair share of staining potential.
If you have designed your living space according to a laid-back, or even beach-inspired design, then you can make the dining room much more casual with the addition of neutral tones as well as wicker chairs. This is the perfect spot to enjoy meals and family time, no black tie required! Dining chairs are a good way to integrate proportion or contrast in the room. Choose chairs that come in different heights to create an interesting layout. Taller end chairs can have an extra function: they help to fill the space in a large room, while creating visual flow with their shorter counterparts.
Mobile or portable kitchen islands are very great to have in homes with an open floor plan where the kitchen shares the same zone with the living space and maybe even some other areas. This means that the kitchen island can become part of any of the other spaces’ design as well. You can also use the kitchen island as a bar or an extension to the dining table. A kitchen island on wheels increases the versatility of the piece and gives you more freedom when using it. This island has a very intriguing design. It has a sleek metal frame with tall and thin legs with wheels and this simple design makes it lightweight and easy to relocate. Take out in the living room, in the dining room and even on the terrace.
