Perks of Using Recycled Timber in Furniture

05 Apr 2018

Recycled timber furniture is the most environmentally friendly type of furniture in Australia. When you use recycled timber furniture instead of brand new furniture, you are leaving behind a green foot print, rescuing the lives of trees, saving the environment and making Brisbane greener.

When you use recycled timber, you are complying with the 3Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. You are reducing the amount of waste that can accumulate in the environment of Brisbane, reusing the waste that would otherwise be disposed away, and recycling the wood that is still in good condition.

Apart from benefitting the environment, recycled timber furniture has many personal benefits as well:

  1. Economical: Recycling timber is not only environment friendly, but also pocket friendly. Recycled timber furniture is quite cheap, and it will save you the money that you would have had to of spent on a new piece of wooden furniture. You can bring in your own timber to have it milled down and constructed into something new by DVO Furniture
  2. Antique Look: When wood is recycled and remade into new furniture, it gives a very natural, antique and Victorian look to the house. It will cost a lot more to bring this antique look artificially on virgin wood furniture. DVO Furniture Designs can design your furniture the way you want it to be.
  3. Extra Money: If you are looking forward to disposing of your furniture, then instead of discarding your old timber, sell them off. This will not only fetch you some extra money, but also help someone else to obtain timber furniture at a low cost.
  4. Durable: Contrary to the popular belief that the older the wood gets, the poorer its quality gets, in reality, old wood is much stronger than new wood. Over the years, expansion and contraction lead wood to dry out, this leads to wood less prone to splitting and warping.

Undoubtedly, recycled timber has many benefits which makes it a better option than virgin wood.
