I designed this affordable kitchen remodel using salvaged or reclaimed materials. The only new materials are the lighting, the kitchen faucet, and the angle iron that supports the shelves and the countertops. All the other materials are salvaged or, as in the case of the wood countertops, floors, and ceiling; created with reclaimed materials. The ceiling is made of old wooden bleachers from a local college. The Crane farm sink was found at a local antique store. The pantry, cabinet doors, and drawers are salvaged leaded glass windows or doors. Open shelving isn't for everyone, but as a set designer and prop stylist, I knew I'd have no trouble making the space look tidy and attractive while still looking like a real family's kitchen. All together, not including the appliances, the total cost came to around $12,000 including labor and materials.
