We spend a huge amount of time and money on renovation. As we grow, our needs increase and change. With changing ideas and thoughts comes the need to renovate and replace the old with something new. Something that reflects our changed tastes and thoughts. Renovation should not be limited to restores and diy changes. Look out for salvaged goods that can look interesting and not make a major dent in the budget.
Why should we do this?
Most salvaged products include doors, windows, plumbing fixtures, and wood flooring are increasingly easy to find. Adding a large mirror to a bathroom may turn out very expensive but if you salvage one, then the cost reduces to a fourth. The same is for adding new doors or cabinet With a retouch of paint or any other finish, the salvaged door or cabinet looks as good as new.
Salvaged products are old products that are being reused. When we reuse a product we automatically have reduced the resources, energy and the labour that would have gone in making a new product. We reduce green house gas emissions that contribute to global warming. This also means that there is less wastage and less pollution in the air as the wastes are nit expelled in a reused product. Old products find their way to a landfill and reusing products helps eliminate the stress on landfills and the environment.
Since you are picking up a piece as it contributes to a cleaner planet, make sure the demolition company does the same. Focus Demolition Kalgoorlie utilises a large fleet of specialised light and heavy duty equipment to provide cost-effective, safe and timely site clearance.
Interesting pieces of conversation
An usual piece of art ends up being a conversation piece and most salvaged products like mirrors, stained glass etc are really easy to add to a house and to the conversation.
An ornate wood mantelpiece or a set of Victorian doors can look really good with the right background. Some great finds can be salvaged and redone to give a fantastic finish which can be very expensive if bought from a store.
