Architectural Salvage Stakes a Claim

There has been a time when architectural salvage materials could be found for very little money, offering excellent savings along with a layer of uniqueness. Now that more architectural salvage yards are open to the public and more people appreciate the background and texture that densely salvaged materials bring to their houses, retailers will also be offering salvage style in a premium. The allure of salvaged materials is that they may be created to conform to any style, from traditional to contemporary. And there’s still lots of potential for economies plus a special touch if you are able to think outside the box.

This is a gorgeous mix of an antique look with a contemporary interior. Although the wood stove looks classic, it is really new. The flooring is reclaimed wood from a variety of species. The spiral stairs and gloomy kitchen cabinet are indeed architectural salvage. Who’d have guessed?

Smaller doors could be repurposed into cupboard fronts. It’s not necessary to attempt to match the new timber to obsolete, Engineered timber. Utilizing bright white cupboards and cabinets for the remainder of the cabinetry really draws attention to your centerpiece wood doors.

Appliances which were made to last can be used decades later. An old stove range with an ultramodern hood, minimalist cabinets and concrete flooring make for an unforgettable combination in the kitchen.
