Are you about to move home and aren’t sure what to do with some of your old furniture? If so, don’t worry. Moving home is a great opportunity to conduct a clear out or simply get rid of old tatty furniture. However, not all of us have huge budgets to go out and buy new items. With this in mind, there are a number of creative and functional things you can do with old pieces of furniture and Pers Removals, we’ve put together some of the most popular.

Upcycle Your Old Pieces

There are so many wonderful things that you can do with old pieces of furniture. Instead of getting rid of items by throwing them away or donating them, you could inject a new lease of life to old items by turning them into entirely new and creative pieces. For example, you could turn an old cot into a desk for children, utilise unused crates by transforming them into an arty bed base or you could even turn old tires into a retro coffee table. You don’t have to completely change the piece of furniture; you could simply cover an old sofa in new fabric to freshen it up, or turn a classic chest of drawers into a shabby chic bureau. If you’re looking for some inspiration and are feeling creative, get online and check out what others have done. Pinterest is a great place to start.

Recycle and Help the Planet

If you’re completely done with an item of furniture and don’t think that you’ll be able to do anything with it due to time or lack of motivation, you should really consider recycling it. You can take any items of furniture to local scrap yards, or you can contact professional recyclers who will find a good home or use for your old piece. Not only does this free up some room for your move, but it also means that the item will get properly recycled which in turn, helps the environment.

Help Someone out and Donate to Charity

There are a number of furniture charity shops nowadays, many of which will collect from you if you’re unable to get your old furniture to them. Just think, your unused and unneeded items of furniture would suit somebody perfectly and help support a charity in the process. As the old saying goes, ‘one man’s rubbish is another man’s treasure’.
