Pallets, mainly wooden, were always reserved for putting under the fridge, also shopkeepers using them to keep their goods off the ground.  However, still performing those different tasks, pallets now form part of a new trend of modern furniture (pallet furniture).

Now pallets are finding their way into restaurants, poolsides, on balconies, patios, living rooms and bedrooms too.

People have started picking up pallet furniture over ordinary furniture because they are versatile and are easily recycled. Once your furniture is old, it can easily be repaired or recycled to something else such as flowerbeds, among other projects.

Material

Hardwood is often used when the type of furniture we are making is supposed to be reassembled. Pallets are mainly treated to avoid rotting among other natural hazards.  According to Arnon, this is taken care of before putting it up for sale.

Before you choose…

Before choosing a certain design, one needs to keep in mind the cushioning they will prefer .

This will help them to achieve a satisfying look when they are finally taken home in their respective rooms.

The pallet furniture is sometimes thought to be expensive because some of the pallet material is imported. The labour that is involved in the process of making custom made furniture is also considerable.

Cost

The pricing is mainly dependent on the design and finishing of respective furniture (some are finished with lighting beneath them, especially beds).

There are many pieces of furniture that can be made from wooden pallets. These include loungers, sitting sets, coffee tables, dining tables, beds, benches, centre tables, TV stands, shelves and couches among others. The decision solely depends on what one wants for one’s home.
