For more rustic houses, we often strive to incorporate recycled materials into the design, as it often provides features with a more antique feel. In the kitchen featured below, we wanted to maintain the character and rustic charm of the home. The cabinets were made of reclaimed (used) douglas fir wood that is fully recycled. You can see all of the old nail holes, knots, and dents adding much more life & character than "new" wood.
The island was also made from recycled douglas fir and the butcher block top was salvaged from a previous work table.
