Recycled Timber Dining Table Tops

We are living through an important time. The choices that we make as consumers today will undoubtedly have an impact on the ability of future generations to enjoy the planet in the same way as we have until now. As producers, it is also important that ethical considerations are taken when deciding how best to proceed with manufacturing goods for our customers. Where furniture is concerned, one of the ways that both the producer and customer can opt to make an ethical choice is in opting for recycled timber table tops.


Recycled Timber Table Tops in Melbourne

At Full House Furniture, we are based in the Melbourne suburb of Dandenong. Since we opened the doors to our wonderful showroom for the first time over twenty years ago, we made it our goal to craft Australian made products that were built with consideration for the environment. Our longevity in this industry stems from our prior expertise in the building industry, where we gained an appreciation for the real-world costs of the supply chain.


We source all of the timber that we use in our solid timber furniture from local sources. We prefer to keep things local because it reduces the carbon footprint that we create in delivering our services. It also allows Melbourne natives to create something unique from their home that was derived completely in their environs.


Environmental Benefits of Recycled Timber Dining Tables

The choice for a recycled timber dining table over a mass-produced alternative is one that has a major impact on the world around you. First and foremost, only timber that is needed is required, which means that it is much more possible to conserve old growth forests. This has a knock-on positive effect with regards to increasing the carbon storage and keeping greenhouse gas emissions low.


Here at Full House Furniture, we recognise just how much more energy efficient using recycled timbers is. In the absence of the need to remove from the earth and ship, the amount of waste products created is minimised. What’s more, sourcing our timber locally ensures that the distance travelled from the forest to your home is kept as low as possible.


Those that appreciate custom built products over off-the-shelf alternatives will also recognise that you aren’t just buying something that looks different, you are gaining a piece of furniture that will last and wear far better. Cheap wood and cheap production methods mean that those flatpacks and run-of-the-mill products cannot stand up to the same kind of usage as customised solid wood furniture can.


The recycled timber table tops that we use offer durability, which means that you won’t have to rush out to the store to replace them every few years. It will also retain its fantastic beauty when looked after. Therefore, it’s resale value will be kept, or it may even appreciate.


A Result That Will Make You Happy

The choices that we make as consumers have a direct impact on how we feel. A responsible choice that looks superb and offers marvellous longevity is one that is certain to make you happy time and time again. Given that your own preferences and ideas shape the finished result, your table becomes that bit more personal and something that you will cherish.


The doors to our showroom here at Full House Furniture are open seven days a week. As such, whether you are curious or exploring or just want to talk ideas, come on in and have a chat. We just might end up making a recycled timber dining table together that your family can enjoy into the future.
