Shabby chic industrial kitchen with Kee Klamp
Steve and Kelly bought their house nearly 2 years ago and wished for a unique kitchen, something they could design and build themselves. They also wanted to keep costs down, so they used a lot of recycled and second-hand materials, together with key clamps and tube system.
Updating a kitchen can be an expensive process, but if you enjoy DIY and have the skills for it, you can save a lot of money while doing it. Kelly is a textile designer and Steve is a carpenter, so they both had the skills to create a bespoke kitchen. They both wanted a cosy kitchen that was both functional and looked impressive.
Collecting items from antique and vintage markets also helped them keep the costs down: most of the kitchen was built using recycled materials.
Kelly and Steve used Kee Klamp to build the shelves and breakfast bar. The tube and fittings system was easy to use and it gave the kitchen the industrial look they were going for.
Kelly says that everyone loves their kitchen and people can’t believe they managed to pull it off on their own. They still have a few bits they want to finish but Kelly reckons this is the case in most houses. She is hoping to plan some dinner parties for friends and family in the near future to show off the updated room.
