4. Use Reclaimed Wood in Cabinets

This is the perfect time to give your kitchen cabinets a makeover with reclaimed wood. It’s the natural way to dress up your whole kitchen. Each panel of reclaimed wood relates a compelling story – of considerable time hidden away in an old building, perhaps, or in the crumbling structure of a barn or fence. And something of that story will endure in your reclaimed wood cabinets, crossing your mind whenever you reach into them.

5. Reclaimed Wood for Tables

Tabletops made or consisting of reclaimed wood can impart a modern, emphatically different ambiance to your dining room or home office. Unite the subtle, natural hues of reclaimed wood with your décor for a harmonious look that comforts you – while it “wows” your guests!

6. Bookcases of Reclaimed Wood

However else we may regard them, books make wonderful decorative pieces. Arrange a book or selection of books on a coffee table or end table, on a bookshelf, or in a big bookcase, and they’re sure to capture the attention of guests. Their agreeable variety is both accentuated and brought together in bookcases of natural wood, too. And bookcases of reclaimed wood, due to their natural colors, knots, holes, scratches, and other traits, provide an especially attention-getting, one-of-a-kind furnishing.

7. Reclaimed Wood and Picture Frames

The rustic, natural look of reclaimed wood is ideal for picture frames. It’s just what’s needed to show off your favorite artwork and personal photos in a uniquely eye-catching manner. What’s equally noteworthy that frames of reclaimed wood can be assembled in a plethora of styles, thus they’ll harmonize with practically any interior design.

8. Reclaimed Wood for a Headboard

Not much can upgrade the ambiance of a bedroom like a smartly designed and constructed headboard. Today, when renovating, people are just as likely to rig a headboard to the wall behind their bed as they are to attach one directly to the bed itself. Whichever way works best for you, a headboard consisting of reclaimed wood planking can be especially gorgeous. It’s natural hues and weathered features lend themselves to a seemingly infinite number of styles, from antique to modern. With reclaimed wood, you can loosen up your design sense to create the headboard you’ve dreamed about!
