Give a touch of newness to your home interiors by recycling or up cycling old pieces of furniture or artefacts.
Old is gold. That’s the reason we generally hate to part with our old possessions. The fact that we can play around with old pieces of furniture and artefacts, lend a touch of our imagination to them and re-create them into all-new beauties, makes them even more priceless.

Recycled items not only look antique, but are also pocket-friendly. The key focus of recycled interiors is decorating with sustainability, without compromising on style. You can decorate your home with a sustainable, ecofriendly approach, while adding style, beauty and quality. A beautiful home should embrace those who live in it and increase happiness, health and well-being of occupants.
Recycling is a trend which is very much in vogue these days. “Furniture created with recycled materials is very much in demand these days. Use of natural design materials, recycled metals, eco-friendly wood and handmade decorative pieces are all in vogue. As per the latest trends, antique and vintage décor is in demand; hence, furniture and decorative items made of timber can be repurposed, refinished or otherwise refurbished to give them a new life,” shares architect Sanjiv Malhan.
The most popular material being used is refurbished wood, but then there are more unconventional materials and objects that are being used to give new look to old pieces, for example, old bulbs or wooden crates are being converted into planters; tyres of old cars are being converted into chairs. Another material that is now becoming popular is chipboard. A panel made of recycled wood is being extensively used for wall coverings to give the space a feeling of richness.
