Recycled and Reclaimed Materials to Consider for Your Interior Accent Wall

If you want to make an interior wall out of recycled materials, there are a lot of fun ideas that can work. Playing with recycled elements is a great way to make a statement with your design and hopefully turn that accent wall into a conversation piece. You just have to decide which material to use.

Here's a look at some popular options.

Reclaimed Bricks

Also called recycled bricks, reclaimed bricks are bricks that have been reclaimed from another structure and repaired as needed by a specialist company. In some cases, these are bricks from old fireplaces. In other cases, they are bricks from schools or homes or even brick roads.

Brick Tiles

If the wall is a supporting wall, you may want to go with full bricks. However, you may also build a framed wall and just add a brick facade. Many recycled brick companies sell brick tiles. These are basically small slices of reclaimed bricks that you can use on the interior or exterior of your home.

Used Bricks

If you have a lead on some old bricks, you don't necessarily need to work with a company that specialises in recycled bricks. Instead, you can scout out your own used bricks. If any of your family is doing renovation work, that's a great option to explore. Alternatively, consider contacting demolition companies — they may be willing to let you remove and pay for bricks before they take down the property.

Recycled Plastic Bricks

For a more modern look, you may want to consider recycled plastic bricks. These bricks have primarily been used to build homes, but they can work to create a unique interior wall.

They are made from melted down plastic that is turned into bricks. This product takes waste from oceans or rubbish that would have ordinarily be sent to landfills, and it turns it into something useful.

Recycled Tiles

Along with your bricks, you may want to integrate some tiles. Reclaimed tiles come in a huge range of colours and designs, and you can get anything from a fun industrial style tile from a mid-century railway station to the luxurious tiles that lined the hearth of a Victorian fireplace.

Repurposed Barn Wood

Just as recycled bricks can add an intriguing touch, so too can repurposed barn wood. Reclaimed timber is hugely popular, and it can work for anything from coffee tables to walls. You can also combine it with some of the other options on this list.
