2. Reclaimed Wood and Walls

If it’s excitement you want in your home, reclaimed wood brings it inside like nothing else. Reclaimed wood paneling adds subtle drama to a wall and imparts a comforting atmosphere to the room. Whether you have a bookcase, fireplace, artwork, or TV to dramatize, a reclaimed wood wall will look incredible behind it and provide the very effect you you desire.

3. Used Reclaimed Wood for Floors

Want to redo a floor in your house? Wood flooring of any kind can add warmth and coziness to a room, but flooring of reclaimed wood has a singular beauty that says something about the time – usually decades – the wood has spent in its natural outdoor environment. Regardless of whether you like the great outdoors or just like the look of weathered wood, you’ll fall head over heels in love with what a reclaimed wood floor can do to upgrade your home.

4. Cabinets of Reclaimed Wood

What better excuse could you find to enhance the look of your kitchen cabinets now that better-quality reclaimed wood is so popular and easily accessible? It’s the natural way to dress up your entire kitchen. Each panel of reclaimed wood relates an incredible story – of considerable time hidden away in an old building, for instance, or in the crumbling structure of a barn or fence. And a bit of that story will linger on in your reclaimed wood cabinets, called forth each time you lay eyes on them.

5. Reclaimed Wood as a Table

Tabletops made or consisting of reclaimed wood can impart a contemporary, assuredly transcendent look 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 takes your guests’ breath away!

6. Your Bookcases Cry Out for Reclaimed Wood

Forget for a moment what else we might find attractive about them, books make excellent decorative pieces. Leather, vinyl, buckram, or paperbound books and those with colorful dust jackets look especially pleasing on a coffee or end table, on a bookshelf, or in a large bookcase. Their agreeable variety is both accentuated and harmonized in bookcases of natural wood, too. And bookcases of reclaimed wood, due to their natural colors, knots, holes, scratches, and other markings, prove to be a particularly eye-filling, one-of-a-kind décor item.

7. Reclaimed Wood as a Frame

The soft-hued, natural look of reclaimed wood is perfect for picture frames. It’s just what’s needed to show off your favorite artwork and important photos in a uniquely distinctive manner. What’s equally worth pointing out is that frames of reclaimed wood can be crafted in a plethora of styles, so they’ll harmonize with nearly any décor scheme.

8. Use Reclaimed Wood for Your Headboard

There’s little that can reinvent the ambiance of a bedroom like a intelligently designed and constructed headboard. Today, when renovating, people are just as apt to rig a headboard to the wall behind their bed as they are to attach one directly to the bed itself. Either way, a headboard constructed of reclaimed wood planking can be undeniably breathtaking. It’s natural tones and effects of weathering lend themselves to a seemingly infinite number of styles, from antique to modern. With reclaimed wood, you can loosen up your design sense to create the headboard you’ve dreamed about!
