When it comes to your home interior, nothing is more ideal than sustainable designs that are both beautiful and functional.  Sustainable designs at home can be achieved by using reclaimed wood. You don’t have to shy away from the natural beauty of wood floors and furniture, because by using reclaimed wood, you are recycling materials and, thus, helping the environment.  You will also save a lot of money because reclaimed wood is much less expensive than newer materials.

Reclaimed wood is repurposed wood from old barns, boats, and other structures. Despite their somewhat damaged origins, these kinds of wood are still durable enough for certain functions at home because they have already stood the test of time and strengthened as a result. Reclaimed wood is also usually from older trees, which matured more properly than a lot of newer wood materials available in stores, so they assure high quality and strength.

There are many ways you can incorporate reclaimed wood into your home. Reclaimed wood can be used for lovely wood floors that add one-of-a-kind character to your home. These woods offer richer colors and markings that only come with time, and you can find unique patterns and patinas to create a beautiful finish.

Walls and ceilings in your halls or living room can easily be enhanced with the distinctive character of reclaimed wood. You can make it even more unique by incorporating varying wood tones in each section. Keep in mind that your wooden walls do not have to be dark, so experiment with different lighter tones as well. Reclaimed wood in unusual places makes your home more interesting and striking.

Furniture can also be made from reclaimed wood. Dining tables, side tables, and even chairs are a great way to incorporate and display reclaimed wood around your home.

The character of reclaimed wood cannot be imitated, which is what sets it apart from contemporary wood. Flaws such as nail marks and holes reflect its history, thus making it an eye-catching addition to any room.
