Recycling decoration: a kitchen made with pieces of other furniture

He recycling Not only is it solidary with the environment but it has also become fashionable and mix old and modern things as well. Hence a kitchen like this, made with pieces of antique furniture today it is not a crazy idea at all, although some years ago it would have seemed a horror.

The idea is in take advantage of old furniture parts that are in good condition or that are useful for the construction of the new furniture and mix them with other more modern parts and with appliances that can incorporate the latest technological advances creating contrasts. In the mixtures of color and in the use of diverse materials, lies the charm of a kitchen like this.

Note that I like the first photo more, this complete set with so many mixtures for me is already a bit excessive, but it is also true that I have always been quite monochromatic and that so much variety in the color unbalances me. Also the space in which it is placed for my taste too small, perhaps in a larger room such a kitchen would have been better.

Still, yes some of the furniture separately yes they have their charm, the ones I like most are those in the sink area and the detail of the flexo placed in one of those furniture to directly illuminate our favorite recipe book seems ideal. This same technique of using old furniture to make new ones, we have already seen in other rooms of the house for storage furniture, but in the case of the kitchen, because of the contrast with the appliances, it attracts much more attention.

Los Tres Juanes, beautiful Mudejar coffered ceilings

The same is my feeling, but even in spite of the crisis, there is a culture of discrediting the old in today's society, that only the new has value. I must confess that I once succumbed to it, but I see more and more beauty in objects and techniques from other eras, such as these beautiful Mudejar coffered ceilings from Los Tres Juanes.
