2. Redo Your Walls with Reclaimed Wood

Nothing brings the outside in as invitingly as a reclaimed wood wall. Reclaimed wood paneling invigorates a wall without overpowering it and adds a warm feel to the room. Whether you have a artwork, TV, bookcase, or fireplace to offset, a reclaimed wood wall will look amazing behind it and provide precisely the effect you’re after.

3. Redo Your Floors in Reclaimed Wood

Want to redo a floor in your house? Any wood flooring can lend warmth to a room, but flooring of reclaimed wood has a singular beauty borne of the time – usually decades – the wood has remained in its natural habitat. Whether you’re partial to being outside in nature or merely one who likes the appearance of weathered wood, you’ll be ecstatic about what a reclaimed wood floor can do to upgrade your home.

4. Reclaimed Wood for Cabinets

Given the the easier access you have to reclaimed wood, this may be the perfect time to do over your kitchen cabinets. It’s the natural way to make your kitchen the warm, inviting haven you’ve always wanted it to be. Each panel of reclaimed wood evokes a fascinating tale – of decades during which it languished in a forgotten building, for instance, or as part of a fallen barn or fence. And a trace of that narrative will remain in your reclaimed wood cabinets, crossing your mind whenever you see them.

5. Reclaimed Wood for Tables

A tabletop incorporating or wholly consisting of reclaimed wood can impart a modern, totally unique ambiance to your dining room or home office. Unite the reclaimed wood’s natural tones and textures with your décor to create a pleasing, well-orchestrated look that comforts you – at the same time it blows your guests away!

6. Reclaimed Wood for Bookcases

Aside from how passionate we may feel about them otherwise, books make excellent decorative pieces. Leather, vinyl, buckram, or paperbound books and those with colorful dust jackets look great on a coffee or end table, on a bookshelf, or in a large bookcase. Their pleasing variety is both differentiated and unified in bookcases of genuine wood, too. And bookcases of reclaimed wood, with their natural colors, knots, holes, scratches, and other telling features, are a singularly attention-getting, one-of-a-kind furnishing.

7. Reclaimed Wood for Frames

The simple, natural look of reclaimed wood is ideal for picture frames. It’s just what’s needed to show off your favorite artwork and important photos in a decidedly distinctive manner. What’s equally noteworthy that frames of reclaimed wood can be fashioned in a wide range of styles, thus they’ll harmonize with just about any look you’ve established for your home.

8. Redo Your Headboard in Reclaimed Wood

Nothing can revive the appearance of a bedroom like a intelligently designed and constructed headboard. There’s no one way, of course, to attach a headboard. It can be – and often is – fastened in some way to the bed itself. But many people today like to have it fastened to the wall behind their bed. However you prefer it, a headboard consisting of reclaimed wood planking can be extraordinarily breathtaking. It’s natural tones and imperfections lend themselves to a diverse number of styles, from antique to modern. With reclaimed wood, you can let your imagination loose to create the headboard you’ve dreamed about!
