Happy April! It’s Eco-Friendly Month on Creative Home, and this month’s Trends We Love feature is buildings and products made with recycled materials. At Mohawk, we believe in creating beautiful flooring products that support a healthy home environment. We also use recycled materials in our luxuriously soft Everstrand carpet. We created our Healthy Home Certification program as a way to ensure that all flooring we sell is safe and sustainable and meets the health standards as certified by credible third-party organizations.
And did we mention how trendy it is to decorate, create products and build with recycled materials?
Here are some of our favorites:
We love this chic, modern home made out of an old grain silo. The two-floor home boasts a circular staircase and warm wooden interior.
Our luxurious soft Everstrand carpet in Orchid Park has 24 colors, and is made out of recycled plastic bottles. We love the beautiful shade of this carpet, in Sage Brush.
Search the Internet for products you can make with used tires, and there are literally thousands of amazing results. We love this tire and banana tree chair; it’s eco-friendly and incredible fashionable.
Talk about rustic chic. This old factory spool has been cleverly upcycled into a coffee table; screw some wheels to the bottom and add dowels around the perimeter of the spool for book storage.
This mobile made out of repurposed vinyl LP records is a groovy art piece for any music lover.
Fun project options with repurposed pallets are seemingly endless! From outdoor swings to bookshelves, bunk beds to kitchen counters, pallets can be converted to any number of household items. We love this outdoor swing bed, made from repurposed pallets.
These stained glass windows are a work of art! Made with a mixture of recycled glass plates and bottle bottoms, this window makes quite the fashion statement.
Whether you’re looking to recycle old tires, pallets, glass or plastic bottles, the options for turning these materials into fashionable décor for your home are endless. Which is your favorite? Let us know in the comments!
