Spruce up your home this Spring by recycling furniture
Spring is a time of renewal and rejuvenation, and what better way to start this wonderfully creative and colourful season than with a home refresh? Make space by recycling furniture, decluttering, cleaning, and having a good old change around.
One of the best ways to give your home a fresh start is by getting rid of any unwanted furniture that's taking up space and making your home feel cluttered. In this blog, we'll explore some tips and tricks for a successful spring home refresh and how to get to grips with recycling furniture.
Assess your space
Before you start decluttering, take a look at your space and think about what you want to achieve. Do you want to create more open space, or are you looking to add some new furniture to the mix? What ‘feel’ are you hoping to create and how do you want to use the space from a practical point of view. These are all important factors in choosing your new room design and layout.
Decluttering is an essential part of any home refresh. Start by going through each room in your home and making a pile of things you want to keep and things you want to get rid of. Be ruthless and don't hold onto items that no longer serve a purpose or bring you joy. Once you've identified the items you want to get rid of, you can make a plan for how to dispose of them.

Recycling furniture with the British Heart Foundation
If you have furniture that's in good condition but no longer serves a purpose in your home, consider donating it. Here at Fabb Furniture, we partner with the British Heart Foundation (BHF), and have, over the years helped raise over £335,000 for the charity via donated furniture sales.
If you choose to use the BHF free furniture collection service for your unwanted and recyclable furniture, it will be sold in their stores across the UK.
The BHF re-uses over 74,000 tonnes of donations a year and the money raised will be used to fund medical research, education about prevention and providing hands on help in the community.
Every penny can help save lives.
Dispose of furniture responsibly
The BHF can only collect items that are in a reusable and saleable condition, ie free from wear and tear and staining. Recycled upholstery items must have a valid fire label fully attached.
If your furniture is damaged or beyond repair, you'll need to dispose of it properly. Many local councils or waste management companies will pick up large items like furniture, but you may need to pay a fee. Be sure to research your options and choose a company that disposes of furniture responsibly.
