Whether you're updating your flooring or remodeling the whole house, using materials made from reclaimed sources can be a great way to cut down on the cost and keep your home eco-friendly. What makes material reclaimed? And what can it be used for within the home?
Last year we shared the scoop on reclaimed flooring. No matter which areas you're remodeling, the principle stays the same: reclaimed sources of materials include those salvaged from old buildings, antique barns, river bottoms, trees removed from urban settings, etc. It's basically any type of material that was used for something else, discarded and then reclaimed for a new purpose. These materials are great for eco-friendly flooring, but it doesn't stop there.
