Those who want to reuse and repurpose materials often use reclaimed wood as part of sustainable design. Still, reclaimed wood can bring so much more to your home.
Using reclaimed wood is fun and can give a room character, warmth, and different textures. Old boards and beams can give new homes or modern spaces a sense of history. Ceiling planks can help a kitchen or home feel more charming, warm, and European.
Placement & Location
Reclaimed wood can be used in a lot of different ways. The only limit is your imagination. Here are some ideas for how to use reclaimed wood and some examples of how we’ve done it.
- Wood headboards can set the mood for the room.
- Beams can be used as a fireplace mantel.
- Counter-tops for the kitchen or bathroom
- sides of islands
- Hardwood floors
- Beams on the ceiling Tables
Where to Get Them
One place that comes to mind right away for wood is an old barn. These boards can also come from homes, hotels, or factories that have been torn down. If you have an older home, there may be beautiful wood behind the drywall or on the floor of the attic.
When a roof is taken off to add a second story, boards can also be found. When an attic is raised to make a second floor, a gold mine—well, a “wood” mine—can be found.
We also have a great source of reclaimed wood that we use in our Millwork Shop. If you want to use this material, give us a call and we can help.
