Adding Reclaimed Beams to Your Home

Many homeowners find exposed ceiling beams to be an elegant addition to their home. This is especially true in homes where the structure or the design incorporate an aged or antique style. Exposed wood beams serve more than a simple function of adding support to your ceiling – they also add beauty to your home.

If you want exposed wood beams at home, what better way to go about doing it than using reclaimed wood? Reclaimed beams are very popular due to their reliable functionality and unique beauty.  Basically, reclaimed beams are made of recycled wood.  Because reclaimed wood has stood the test of time and has gone through the aging process through natural expanding and contracting, it can withstand easy wear and tear and is, in fact, very durable. If you use reclaimed wood, your beams will last much longer than if they were made from new wood.  In addition, reclaimed wood beams contain a distinctive beauty due to their unique wood tones and distressed markings. Each mark is unique and has a rich history, so your wood beams will certainly be one-of-a-kind.

When choosing the perfect wood beams to use, make sure you know what type of wood specie and wood tone will best match your entire interior. There are many options to choose from, with beams ranging from hardwood lumber like cherry, maple, or walnut to softwoods like cypress, pine, or redwood.
