Adding Reclaimed Wood Designs to Your Living Room

Living rooms are usually the main focal point of a house and one of the first things your guests see when they walk through the door.  In order to give a good impression, you want to be sure to focus design and improvement efforts in that area first.

Many homes have small living rooms, which can make it more difficult for homeowners to find ways to enhance the room. When there is limited space, you can’t necessarily add a grand coffee table or put a lovely sofa in front of the fireplace. But, that doesn’t mean there aren’t other ways to turn it into a lovely room. In fact, by creating a strong focal point to divert people’s attention to a particular area, you can create a good first impression regardless of the size of your living room.

One way to enhance your living room is to incorporate reclaimed wood into the design. Reclaimed wood is a naturally beautiful, raw material that is already striking on its own, let alone when you incorporate it into a room’s design. If you utilize reclaimed wood properly, it can transform a room into an elegant living space.

If you have a fireplace, make it your focal point and add reclaimed lumber over your mantel to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Even if you don’t frequently use your fireplace, if it is well decorated, it will still serve its purpose.

Another option is to add a lovely reclaimed wood coffee table. A coffee table is not only practical, but using reclaimed wood will also provide a strong design element due to its unique colors and imperfections. A reclaimed wood coffee table will cause people to take notice and will fit in with many different design styles.

And, if you have a coffee table, why not add more seats to the living room to encourage more intimate conversation with friends? Aside from your sofa set, add wooden seats around your coffee table or fireplace. Wooden seats are beautiful and inviting, and wood designs can easily complement other furniture, regardless of the style.

Complete the look of your small living room with a high table or chest.  Design one side of the living room with a grand high table and an elegantly framed mirror. A wooden table will look striking below a unique mirror, and the only other thing you’ll need is a lovely vase filled with fresh flowers to complete the look. This side of the room will always draw people’s eye and will create a sense of style and elegance, even if the rest of the room is not as elaborate.

Reclaimed wood is perfect for home redecorating due to its elegant beauty and function. If you want to use reclaimed lumber at home, take a look at Superior Hardwoods of Montana.
