Modern kitchen furnishing with wooden boxes, crates and pallets

Kitchen furnishing with wooden boxes and pallets is a spreading trend just now. Mentioned by many contemporary interior designers, these elements make it possible to add a touch of originality and creativity to a space which is increasingly the core of modern homes. See how it only takes a flash of ingenuity to invent uses that offer striking and practical possibilities, as well as reviving the naturalness of simple wood.

But who said that wooden boxes should only contain fruit and vegetables?

Wooden fruit crates can actually be highly versatile for various kitchen furnishing uses, as well as being low cost and easy to get hold of: just go to your nearest local market and ask a vendor you know to set some aside for you.

Wooden boxes and crates are transformable: from simple containers to original and useful furnishing elements

We know that nothing is more irritating in a kitchen than opening an over-full and disorganized drawer where you can’t find what you want, often just at a critical point of a sophisticated cooking process… but creative wooden fruit box recycling can be the solution for offering you new storage space and better organisation.

Ideal for livening up the homes (and lives) of young couples – because they stimulate their spontaneity and imagination while costing little or nothing – wooden crates can find new uses in countless ways. Their rectangular shape permits them to be used exactly as they are, without needing any complicated structural work, or with just a few extra elements added.

One outstandingly practical kitchen furnishing solution involves using an ex-fruit crate for shelving purposes. One or more wooden crates fixed to the kitchen wall can act as extremely practical shelving space for storing all those things you need to have always ready to hand, from coffee mugs for breakfast to countless other everyday items.

Also fixed to the wall, but this time closer to your worktop and hob, wooden crates and boxes can also make perfect repositories for storing a multicoloured collection of herbs and spices, invaluable allies for your creative or exotic cookery.

But the versatility of used wooden containers doesn’t end here: as wall shelving space they make ideal bookcases for holding recipe books of all kinds and sizes: a lively and informal proposal for creating extra space, and a great aesthetic choice for displaying your passion and expertise concerning the pleasures of cooking.

Revisited in shabby chic style, coloured brightly or boasting the naturalness of unadorned wood, wooden fruit containers can also be converted for other furnishing uses, such as, for example:

  • a practical trolley, created by simply adding four wheels to the base
  • a mobile multi-functional side-table, also by adding four wheels
  • a container for aromatic plants, to make sure you always have fresh rosemary, thyme, mint and oregano ready to add to your recipes.

 

If you want to try inventing other creative furnishing from wooden packaging, not limited to modern kitchen uses, you should also let your imagination loose on pallets and larger kinds of crates.

Furnishing with pallets and crates: a challenge for the most passionate and expert experimenters with creative recycling

Wooden pallets, as we all know, hail from the field of logistics, packaging and transport, designed to be handled by forklifts. Frequently recycled for modern creative furnishing, they too offer numerous possibilities for being transformed into solidly durable objects for indoor or outdoor use.

Obviously, in this case it can take rather more ability and know-how to effect your transformations, dealing with bigger and heavier objects, but if you’re ready for the extra effort, the challenge can certainly be worth it.

Environmentally sustainable, economic and capable of resisting heavy weights, pallets and large robust crates offer a much wider range of furniture options:

  • structures for beds
  • bookcases
  • tables and desks
  • outdoor benches
  • plant window boxes or displays.

A useful tip: beware of wood splinters! The best thing is to thoroughly sandpaper crates and pallets before handling them or using them as furniture! Once you’ve taken this precaution, you’re free to think up and implement all kinds of ideas for enlivening and enhancing your home with on-trend economic and eco-friendly furnishing.
