Regardless of whether you love the outdoors or simply love the look of weathered wood, you’ll go into your happy dance for sure when you see what a reclaimed wood floor can do to make your home feel new again.

4. Use Reclaimed Wood in Cabinets

Now’s the time to give your kitchen cabinets a makeover with reclaimed wood. It’s the natural way to improve the warmth and congeniality of your kitchen. Every panel of reclaimed wood relates a compelling tale – of many years [[spent in an old building, maybe, or as part of a barn or fence. And something of that narrative will endure in your reclaimed wood cabinets, coming to mind each time you and others admire them.

5. Reclaimed Wood for Tables

Tabletops fashioned out of reclaimed wood can add a contemporary, emphatically transcendent touch to your dining room or home office. Partner the reclaimed wood’s natural tones and textures with your overall interior design for a harmonious look that satisfies your creative vision – as it leaves your guests in stunned admiration!

6. Reclaimed Wood and Bookcases

Apart from how passionate we may feel about them otherwise, books make great decorative pieces. Set a book or group of books on a coffee table or end table, on a bookshelf, or in a big bookcase, and they’re certain to make a good impression. Their pleasing variety is both called out and brought together in bookcases of natural wood, too. And bookcases of reclaimed wood, because of their natural colors, knots, holes, scratches, and other markings, are a particularly attention-getting, one-of-a-kind décor item.

7. Pics “Pop” in Frames of Reclaimed Wood

The weathered, natural look of reclaimed wood is perfect for picture frames. It actually can enhance your favorite artwork and personal photos in a most exciting manner. It’s worth noting, too, that frames of reclaimed wood can be put together in a plethora of styles, so they’ll match almost any look you’ve established for your home.

8. Reclaimed Wood for a Headboard

Not much can upgrade the ambiance of a bedroom like a skillfully designed and constructed headboard. These days, when renovating, homeowners are just as likely to rig a headboard to the wall behind their bed as they are to fasten one directly to the bed itself. Whichever way works best for you, a headboard constructed of reclaimed wood planking can be especially stunning. It’s natural tones and imperfections are easily adapted to a multiplicity of styles, from antique to modern. With reclaimed wood, you can set your artistic talent free to create the headboard you’ve dreamed about!
