Pallets, Plumbers And Kitchen Remodels In Long Beach

Thinking Outside The Box

There are quite a few different remodeling solutions worth pursuing. You might refurbish the attic, or put in a deck, but one of the most striking and satisfying remodel choices pertains to a kitchen remodel. The thing is, this is going to be a very expensive remodel for most people—but it doesn’t have to be. There are some really cost-effective options.

Designing With Pallets

For example, have you considered refurbishing some pallets into a table, or a makeshift island option? The neat thing about pallets is that they’re uniquely configured in size and shape to meet a variety of purposes. Often they’re about three feet square, or in that neighborhood. You can put three together such that they make a table or an island.

You can adjust the width and length dependent on available pallets. If you’ve got six, you can cut two in half for a shelf in the middle and a level top, then have two on either side that make a long bar-length sitting area. Paint over them to match the color scheme of your kitchen, lacquer for shine, and commission a bit of custom-sized glass for the top.

Businesses that use pallets often discard them or sell them for a few dollars. Just search "free pallets in (your city)," and you will find some help in locating pallets or you can visit our classified ads section to find some pallets near you and be notified if pallets are available in your area. In shopping for pallets, you want to avoid those used by a chemical or pesticide processing company; aim for ones used for dry goods. Check out our safety page to know if your pallets are safe for reuse.

Pallet Mobile Kitchen Island

Constructing the kitchen island with pallets can be done for, basically, the cost of the tablets, paint, lacquer, and glass. Most households already have the paint and lacquer, so really you’re just out $20 to $50 for the fitted glass — depending on how much you need; could be more — and voila! You have a new kitchen island that is chic, built to order, and perfectly matches your existing décor. Plus, it can be made for mobility.

Some Logical Considerations

Granted, with an island, you’re going to want to root the finished product to the floor, and ensure you secure the glass on top. But if you get creative, this can be done in a way which retains mobility, allowing your kitchen island to have additional utility.

Pallets are widely available. If you’ve got a dozen of them, you can make an L-shaped island that divides the room up and provides seating for multiple persons, while retaining sociability and the ability to serve. With storage space beneath, you can keep implements.

Beautiful Pallet Outdoor Kitchen Counter

Then there’s the possibility of extending an existing countertop. You may need to do a few plumbing realignments depending on the situation. Plan it out! Those on the hunt for a Long Beach plumber might want to go with PlumbingFix.com, which offers: "…first-rate services that you can count on."

But you don’t want to neglect the plumbing angle. According to RestorationElite.com, water damage can be very serious; as the site says: "…water damage is one of the most common and destructive problems for a homeowner. If not taken care of immediately, excess water in your home can cause expensive damage and can even lead to hazardous mold."

Keep Your Feet Safe!

If you’re not careful with your refurbishing projects, it’s possible to accidentally shoot yourself in the foot. Pallets actually open up quite a bit of thing when creatively used, but you don’t want to find yourself with a plumbing issue that requires you to completely disassemble the homemade remake you’ve effected.

The takeaway here is that there are quite a few different things you can do to upgrade the value of your house in a cost-effective way using free or cheap existing materials. With the kitchen, folks don’t always consider that pallet repurposing can be used to totally change a space.

So take stock of your resources, plan out a few things, and see what you can do to revitalize your property. You may be surprised at the possibilities.
