Before you throw away furniture or household items, think about if they can be reused in a creative way. Items you might think are junk just might become your new favorite piece of furniture, or decor. Next time you’re thinking about getting a new piece of furniture, here’s 5 reasons why you should consider buying or making a recycled piece.
- While living at one of our Western National Properties you can own a piece of furniture that cannot be found anywhere else. That’s exactly what recycled furniture is, a one-of-a-kind piece. For example, a headboard and be turned into the back of a bench.
- Not only can you help conserve the planet by living at one of our eco-friendly apartments for rent in Ventura County, but you’re also helping to minimize waste by purchasing recycled furniture. That’s because each piece that’s recycled is one less that goes into a landfill.
- Along with not contributing to landfills, a recycled piece helps protect forests because it’s less trees that’re cut down. Trees are an important part of nature because they are a defense against ozone depletion.
- You can show off your own flare with recycled furniture, especially if you make it. One of the easiest ways to upscale a piece is by painting it. Let’s say you find a side table for cheap on Craigslist. You can make it look shiny and new by painting it a bright color and changing out the knobs. If you’re going to paint the piece at one of our Western National eco-friendly apartments for rent in Ventura County, remember to put down newspaper.
- Not only are you saving money by purchasing recycled furniture, but you’re also supporting the local crafter that upcycled the piece.
