Living on the coast can really do a number on your home. So that means you’ve got to invest in the right materials that will stand up and take on the coastal weather. If you don’t, things will fall apart and end of costing you a lot more than you’d like. Take the time and invest in solid, long lasting materials! Check out our 3 Coastal Home Materials That Last list below.
Metals will take on any weather and be left standing ready for more. Metals, especially steel, will out last every other material you have in or around your house. It will probably still be there after we’re gone too. It’s built tough and built to last. Toss it up on you the roof and let it take the constant coastal weather beating or grab some metal furniture and accessories for the outdoors. Metal goods even work indoors as well and can give the space a nice rustic feel too!
2. Reclaimed Wood.
Reclaimed wood has already seen it’s fair share of weather. It’s proven that it can stand the test of time. So when you use this material in your home you can rest assured that it’s not going to be changing too much. This wood is solid and will last. Since it is reclaimed it’s going to be a bit on the pricier side. It has to come from somewhere! The extra money is worth the look and the reassurance of knowing you have a lasting material.
3. Natural Stone Tile.
Tile was created to make our lives easier, give our homes a fantastic look and to last forever. The only way you’re getting rid of your tile is if you tear it out, which is no walk in the park. Tile can take a beating from us and from any outdoor weather. If it gets a little wet no problem, a quick mop up fixes the problem. Plus tile keeps the house cool and we love that during the summer which is okay with us!
The iSanctuary volleyball tourney was this last weekend and it went great! Tuvalu Home was a sponsor for the event and donated these 1st place trophy plaques that turned out so wonderful! This fun tournament/fundraiser was such a blast and everyone had good time on and off the volleyball courts! We were so happy to take part in this fundraiser and enjoyed helping out. iSanctuary helps rehabilitate and reintegrate young girls and women survivors of human trafficking back into society.
