Stumble to this kitchen and pour yourself a cup of ambition!

Did you know that The Resource Exchange saves building materials from landfill? We spent a snowy Saturday reorganizing our selection of tile to make room for some great marble, concrete, stone, and carpet samples that just came in. If you have a floor in need of some love, like the one below, RE is the place to be.

Before - linoleum

That, of course, is the before picture. Ed and Donna Rzepski transformed their kitchen using our reclaimed hardwood flooring. Reclaimed floors present a definite challenge, but what a reward — didn’t they do a great job?

It’s hard to believe that these floorboard might have ended up in a landfill. They’re simply gorgeous, and so much nicer than the original linoleum (although, let’s be real… you can get reclaimed linoleum at RE, too.)

Reclaimed floors seem to be a big trend in Philadelphia, and not just at museums like the Barnes. Check out this interesting residential reclaimed flooring article from our friends at Hidden City!
