Cool Furniture From Recycled Products

Cool Furniture From Recycled Products

Buying new furniture is an exciting prospect for any homeowner. There are dozens of different styles to choose from, which means that it is always a good idea to try something new. Whilst many people stick with traditional furniture, other people may be concerned about the cost and ecological impact of buying brand-new pieces to put in the house.

Recycled furniture is the answer for people who are eager to reduce their carbon footprint. There are innumerable ways in which everyday material can be turned into a stylish and comfortable addition to the household. Read this guide for some inspirational ideas.

Pallet Furniture

Pallet furniture made from recycled wood is becoming increasingly popular with homeowners. Pallets are extremely cost-effective because wood is a cheap material to source. Despite the low cost, pallet wood is treated with special chemicals to make it extremely durable. Durability is important for furniture which is in heavy use such as couches and tables.

Perhaps the greatest advantage of pallets is their diversity: individual pallets can be slotted together and disassembled to create new furniture in the blink of an eye. This can be useful if furniture needs to be customised at short notice – for example, if guests are coming round to the house and there is nowhere for them to sit, extra pallets can be added to the couch in order to make it a lot larger.

Pallets are sanded down so that they are extremely comfortable to sit on. They can be decorated easily by being painted bright colours or covered with eye-catching throws. Alternatively, pallets can be left uncovered to give the house a rustic look. Pallet West’s pallet furniture is a worthwhile addition to any home.

Scrap Metal Tables and Chairs

Scrap metal is extremely useful and shouldn’t always be left to sit in a junkyard. Find a local dealer and buy pieces which haven’t been eaten away by rust. The scrap metal can then be welded into different shapes to make all kinds of furniture.

Scrap metal is extremely durable, so it is the perfect material to make chairs and tables out of. Hire a welder to make sure that the job is done to a professional standard. This will create furniture which lasts for years to come. Sharp corners need to be tapered in order to prevent people injuring themselves on the furniture.

Scrap can be customised with paint to give it an eye-catching look, or alternatively covered with cloth.

Children’s Toys Plastic Melted Down

Children will outgrow their toys eventually. This usually means that the playsets or racing cars which were once the centre of the child’s life now sit languishing in the attic. Why not have the toys melted down and reshaped into plastic furniture. Plastic furniture is ideal for children to sit on and it is easy to move it around to create space in the house.

Follow this guide for great ideas about recycled furniture which is stylish, practical and durable.
