Israel’s Interior Ministry announced Wednesday it is making major changes in its cabinet and kitchen cabinets in an effort to “cleanse the country of its dirty, rusting and corroded” furniture, which can cause “severe damage to the environment and health.”
In a statement, the ministry said it would remove “all pieces of furniture that are not fit for purpose, not fit to the needs of the home, and not fit the home to its inhabitants,” as well as “all furniture that has become obsolete, obsolete in nature, or is not compatible with the needs and needs of its residents.”
“The ministry will also remove from all of its properties the ones that are damaged by the deterioration of the furniture and its components,” the statement read.
“All such properties will be demolished.
The ministry is also in the process of purchasing the remaining old furniture in the country.
The plan is to restore all the old and obsolete furniture in those properties and make them into modern, functional homes.”
In its first major move, the Interior Ministry is replacing the wood-plated cabinet with “fiberglass panels,” the ministry’s statement said.
The ministry also plans to install “an electrified electric fence” to deter burglars and “repair the electricity grid,” according to the ministry.
In addition, it is considering adding solar panels to all of the existing furniture, it said.
Israel has been struggling to overhaul its aging homebuilding sector in recent years, amid a sharp downturn in consumer spending, and the country’s housing stock is falling rapidly.
Israel’s interior ministry said Wednesday that it is replacing all of Israel’s cabinets, furniture and appliances with “fabric, wood and glass.”
The ministry announced the changes in an order to “reclaim the country” of its “dirty, rusty and corrodered” furniture.
The interior ministry ordered the removal of the cabinet and its wood-panel cabinet from every home in the northern city of Haifa and ordered that it be replaced with “glass panels, fiberglass panels and fiberglass cabinets.”
The cabinet’s original wood-and-glass finish has been replaced with a “fabrics, wood, glass and solar fence” as well.
“The cabinets are currently covered with a glass curtain and a curtain with glass paneling, which has been installed on the walls, but we are also considering to install a solar fence,” the interior ministry’s spokesman told Haaretz.
The department will also purchase “all the old, obsolete, old-looking furniture in that property and make it into modern homes,” he added.
The cabinet has also been replaced by “an electric fence,” which “will deter burglaries and repair the electricity system.”
