Five Creative Ways to Incorporate Reclaimed Wood in Your Home
Reclaimed wood offers an incredible story that’s taken centuries to write. Some pieces may come from 18th and 19th century barns. Others may come from warehouses and factories built during the Industrial Revolution. Because of its varying origins, reclaimed wood exhibits characteristics that cannot be replicated, and no two boards are alike. You can sometimes discover exceptionally tight grain patterns, nail holes, weathered colors, rich patinas, saw marks, or other stunning characteristics in these one-of-a-kind products.
You will be able to create a space as unique as your taste with genuine reclaimed wood. And because there are so many ways to incorporate it in your home, from floor to ceiling, your only limitation will be your imagination.
Here are just a few ways you can incorporate reclaimed wood into your home or office:
1. Wide Plank Flooring
Reclaimed wood offers a remarkable and durable wide plank flooring experience. It is often available in much wider widths and longer lengths than today’s typical hardwood flooring. Antique Historic Planks may contain a blend of original saw marks, mixtures of grain patterns, and light and dark boards.
2. Reclaimed Wood for Ceilings
Reclaimed wood can also create stunning ceiling treatments. Authentic Reclaimed Barn Siding is a perfect solution for this application. Our Reclaimed Barn Siding comes from antique barns and other wooden structures that our craftsmen de-nail, hand inspect, and kiln dry to ensure it is of the highest quality. Grey-Brown Barn Siding is particularly unique in that it renders a weathered patina from direct exposure to exterior elements during its lifetime.
3. Reclaimed Wood for Walls
We weren’t joking when we said reclaimed wood could be used for floors, ceilings, and everything in between. If you are looking for a product to create an accent wall, reclaimed wood is the perfect solution. An accent wall of Grey-Brown Barn Siding, with its nail holes, deep grain texture, and weathered knots, can transform any space.
4. Fireplace Mantels
Reclaimed Fireplace Mantels are historic masterpieces of both beauty and style. We handcraft our Fireplace Mantels from generations’ old historic beams that supported old agricultural and industrial structures. Our Hand-Hewn Mantels feature original axe marks, while our Rough Sawn Mantels offer a smoother surface.
5. Reclaimed Trim & Baseboards
Even in the largest projects, the smallest details often make the biggest difference. The addition of Grey-Brown Barn siding, window trim and baseboards will perfectly complement the other reclaimed wood elements in your home or office.
We would love to demonstrate for you just how reclaimed wood can be creatively incorporated in your residential and commercial projects, from those applications already listed to beams, wooden vents, stair systems, and more.
