2. Walls of Reclaimed Wood

Nothing brings the outside into your home as magically as a reclaimed wood wall. Reclaimed wood paneling adds subtle drama to a wall and imparts a cozy feel to the room. Whether you have a TV, bookcase, fireplace, or artwork you want highlighted in a room, a reclaimed wood wall will look fantastic behind it and produce precisely the effect you you want.

3. Reclaimed Wood and Floors

Been thinking about redoing a floor in your house? Wood flooring of any kind can impart warmth to a room, but flooring of reclaimed wood has an unparalleled beauty that says something about the time – usually decades – the wood has been outside. Regardless of whether you like the great outdoors or just like the look and feel of weathered wood, you’ll be thrilled with what a reclaimed wood floor can do to revitalize your home.

4. Use Reclaimed Wood in Cabinets

This is the perfect time to give your kitchen cabinets a sprucing up with reclaimed wood. It’s the natural way to revitalize your kitchen as a whole. Every panel of reclaimed wood conveys a fascinating story – of long years hidden away in an old building, maybe, or in the crumbling structure of a barn or fence. And a piece of that story will live on in your reclaimed wood cabinets, crossing your mind at such times when you reach into them.

5. Reclaimed Wood for Tables

Tabletops made or consisting of reclaimed wood can impart a ultra-current, decidedly different ambiance to your dining room or home office. Partner the reclaimed wood’s natural tones and textures with your décor scheme to achieve a consistent, agreeable look that fulfills your expectations – at the same time it elicits praise from guests!

6. Reclaimed Wood for Bookcases

However else we may regard them, books make marvelous 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 brought together in bookcases of real wood, too. And bookcases of reclaimed wood, given their natural colors, knots, holes, scratches, and other telling features, are a particularly distinctive, one-of-a-kind furnishing.

7. Reclaimed Wood as a Frame

The weathered, natural look of reclaimed wood is perfectly suited for picture frames. It’s just what’s needed to show off your favorite artwork and most cherished photos in a uniquely splendid manner. It’s worth noting, too, that frames of reclaimed wood can be assembled in a wide range of styles, thus they’ll harmonize with practically any interior design.

8. Reclaimed Wood and Headboards

Not much can restore the look of a bedroom like a cleverly designed and constructed headboard. These days, when renovating, homeowners are just as inclined to rig a headboard to the wall behind their bed as they are to attach one directly to the bed itself. However you want it, a headboard adapted from reclaimed wood planking can be particularly breathtaking. It’s natural tones and imperfections make it well suited to a diverse number of styles, from antique to modern. With reclaimed wood, you’ll find you have no limits on your imagination to get in the way of you realizing the headboard that dreams are made of!
