Remodeling our homes; love it or not, we all participate. Remodeling a home could incorporate anything from an aesthetic revamp to something drastic like knocking a wall down to create an open concept. Either way, a remodel may be the perfect opportunity to incorporate reclaimed wood into your home!
While we have all heard of reclaimed wood, it typically has a “reservations-only” connotation in our minds. You know, that “you need x-amount of money for this antique 18th century barn door” reservation. Insert eye-roll here. Reclaimed wood can be found a number of ways, utilized in any home and should not be reserved for the ‘ultra-chic’ in our lives. Here are some ways you can incorporate reclaimed wood in your home that will elicit attention without all the expense.
Thrifting. Thrift shopping for wood furniture, décor and scrap pieces is the ultimate way to reduce, reuse and upcycle reclaimed wood. When you purchase from a local thrift store, you support small business and reduce waste in our landfills, allowing you to reuse old wood for your new décor.
Little Hints. Maybe you have a bookshelf that needs a refresh or space on your coffee table for a reclaimed coaster set; these accents can make quite the impact in your space without much hassle or expense. Using reclaimed pieces in this way allows an opportunity to assimilate into your new décor plan. Adding little hints of warmth throughout the home may inspire the use of larger pieces as the vision comes to life!
One Bold Piece. Another way to go about incorporating reclaimed wood into your home is to make it a focal point. Finding one great piece or set to round out your space can bring a touch of eco-chic to your home in a bold, beautiful way. Be it a coffee table, desk or wall décor a reclaimed statement piece is sure to wow!
