When the time comes to replacing some of our old and weathered products and pieces of furniture, many homeowners would turn to their nearest department store. To save yourself some money and to introduce a more traditional aesthetic into your home, why not swap the department store for some vintage, reclaimed materials? In their latest blog post, Cawarden Brick & Tile Co. outline the many benefits of choosing reclaimed materials over brand new products.
Unsurprisingly, opting for reclaimed materials over brand new products from a store will have less of an impact on your pocket. Despite being available at a cut-price, reclaimed products, such as oak and cast iron, retain their quality for many years. By opting for these reclaimed materials, you can introduce high-quality products to your home for a fraction of the cost.
With vinyl players and polaroid cameras on the rise again, the modern trend is to draw inspiration from yesteryear. By using reclaimed materials, you too can conform to this trend by introducing quirky and retro products into your home and into your garden. Products such as old-time cast iron post boxes and water pump features are all items which will look great in any garden, all while stirring up warming feelings of nostalgia.
Not only do reclaimed materials help you save money and allow you to create a traditional, rustic theme for your home, but they also do their bit for the environment. By opting for reclaimed products over ones available on the high street, you play your part in reducing the effect that manufacturing has on the environment. For oak and wooden products, also, choosing reclaimed materials also helps stem the flow of deforestation.
Whether it is to save yourself some money, to achieve a specific theme or to do your bit for the environment, the next time you need to replace any piece of furniture in your home, take reclaimed materials into consideration.
