Reclaimed wood can be turned into some seriously stylish upgrades for your home. Reclaimed wood has unique colors and textures that are the perfect way to add visual interest, warmth, and style to your home even if you’re on a tight budget. Here are some of the fun and creative ways that reclaimed wood can take your home’s look to the next level:
Stairs are the perfect place in your home to express some personality and add a unique look. Reclaimed wood stair treads and railings are strong and sturdy but look fantastic and really turn the stairs into a dramatic focal point. If you want to give your home a polished look use pieces of wood that have the same color and texture to create a show stopping set of stairs. But if you prefer a more unique look choose different wood types and colors for each step to highlight the unique texture and look of each piece of wood.
The stark white minimalist kitchen look is out and warm and inviting kitchens are in. A beautiful way to add color and warmth to your kitchen while maintaining the clean and inviting look of a white kitchen is to replace your cupboard faces with reclaimed wood. The natural grain lines and marks in the wood combined with the beautiful colors of the wood will add a great natural feel to your kitchen and transform it from sterile white to natural and inviting.
If your family room is looking a little dull and it’s not a place that you and the family want to hang out in try adding some decorative wood paneling to one wall. The natural wood paneling is fantastic for great rooms or family rooms that have soaring ceilings because the wood brings in a natural element and focuses the eye so that the room doesn’t feel like a huge open space. Reclaimed wood will give your family room the grounded and comfortable feel that will make you want to spend time in it again.
