In the dining area above, the table is made from an old bowling alley, and the blackboard on the wall was salvaged when a school was torn down. “These old blackboards have ghosting that tells you about their past,” Joe says. “You can still see things that kids wrote on them, and we’ve seen some from old music rooms that still have the horizontal lines running across. You could hone them if you wanted to, but why spend the money when this is so much more interesting?”

For most homeowners who don’t have a professional connection with a salvage shop, the most budget-friendly angle is to incorporate parts of your old kitchen into your new one. Consider this approach if your current kitchen already has character but simply needs a facelift, says Joe Schneider, owner of J.A.S. Design-Build in Seattle. “Let’s assume it’s a nice old bungalow kitchen that is just dated and falling apart,” he says. “I might reuse some nice old cabinet doors, an old pastry slab, a piece of butcher block or a bread drawer liner.” Other items to consider:

For starters, don’t take the Extreme Home Makeover approach to demolition. Running into your kitchen at full speed, sledgehammer in hand, might reduce stress levels, but it’s also dangerous and wasteful.

If your own kitchen doesn’t offer intriguing possibilities for recycling materials, you can still find cool items to incorporate. One money-saving possibility is to browse your local stone supplier’s collection of remnants, which are often discounted and can be used as island toppers, butcher blocks or pastry slabs.
