Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens

Church Pew to Island Unit

One of the kitchens we’re currently working on includes some lovely reclaimed oak from local church pews.

It never fails to delight us when wood can breathe new life in a different form.

Now joined, the planks are on the way to becoming a stunning island worktop with sink recess yet to be cut out (see the third photo).

The other worktops of toughened recycled glass will contrast beautifully.

Compare the before and after pictures yourself!

Stunning.
