What is Repurposing?

Posted by on May 28, 2013 in Interior Design | 0 comments

One of the best skills you can acquire if you want to get great home décor without spending too much is the ability to repurpose items. Repurposing is the art of seeing new possibilities in a piece of furniture, dishware, fabric or any other item. By using this skills carefully, you can turn thrift-shop baking pans into beautiful centre pieces, make old bookcases work as a new entertainment centre, or build clever cabinets from abandoned wooden lockers. The possibilities are limitless if you learn what to look for.

Repurposing Basics

The most important thing to remember about repurposing is that you need to look beyond the object’s intended function. It is impossible to get the most of of the process if you persist in thinking of a door as just a door. Instead, take a look at its materials, shape, weight and size. That old door could become a new dining room table, a large desk, part of a mobile room divider or the back to a new set of shelves. Page from vintage calendars become attractive wall art. When you start repurposing, focus on the form, not the intended function.

Benefits of Repurposing

Repurposing offers a range of benefits, whether you use discarded items or new ones. Buy using things outside their original intended purpose, you give yourself the opportunity to save money. Many repurposeable items are inexpensive or even free. In addition, you allow yourself to make new use of items you already own. An out-grown baby crib with a removable side turns a charming craft station with just a little blackboard paint. Last but not least, repurposing is environmentally responsible. It keeps old items from ending up in the landfill and reduces consumption of new ones.

Things to Consider

Not every object can repurposed easily. Some require extensive labour or won’t ever do a good job. While repainting furniture and changing the knobs is relatively easy, rebuilding damaged pieces or taking them apart for their components is considerably more difficult. When you decide to repurpose, take a little time to consider your existing skill level and resources. This will prevent you from taking on projects that are more than you can handle and running the risk of a home filled with half-completed objects.

What to Avoid

It can be tempting to try to repurpose everything, but some objects and materials work better than others. For instance, you” have an easier time rehabilitating furniture made of solid wood than you will pieces composed of multi-density fibreboard, or MDF. Plastic object can be repurposed as containers, organizers and storage racks, but you may wish to avoid those that have suffered damage or have obvious non-removable branding on them. To avoid getting buried in junk, call your local rubbish clearance company in London to come in and drive all useless items away.
