We put together 8 great ideas for you – all applied to gorgeous effect in Honolulu homes. 1. Windows of Reclaimed Wood For the first time ever, you can easily own reclaimed wood as a window treatment. Sunburst Shutters now offers a plantation shutter created from certified reclaimed wood. We joined with Stikwood, an FSC-certified company, to provide the best possible reclaimed wood from which to build these shutters. In truth, Sunburst is the sole company offering you reclaimed wood shutters in the Honolulu area. We found the reclaimed wood you like and used it to engineer a louvered shutter that’s just as appealing for its functionality as it is for its beauty. Reclaimed wood can be a window treatment like no other. You know you’re ahead of the game, certainly, when your reclaimed wood shutters are artistic accomplishments in their own right. And Sunburst takes care that they are. You’ll find joy in their smooth, simple operation as well as their appearance. Tilt the louvers open to let in more light. And tilt them closed to bring out the weathered look of reclaimed wood on your window. Don’t just take our word for it, though. There’s so much more to find out about reclaimed wood for windows in Honolulu. Dig deeper! 2. Use Reclaimed Wood on Walls Nothing brings the outside into your home as charmingly as a reclaimed wood wall. Reclaimed wood paneling makes your wall distinctive and imparts a comforting ambiance to the room. No matter if you have a artwork, TV, bookcase, or fireplace to offset, a reclaimed wood wall will look beautiful behind it and create the very effect you’re after. 3. Floors of Reclaimed Wood Looking to redo a floor in your house? Any wood flooring can impart warmth to a room, but flooring of reclaimed wood has an unparalleled beauty that reveals the time – often decades – the wood has remained outdoors. Whether you love the outdoors or simply love the look and feel of weathered wood, you’ll be blown over by what a reclaimed wood floor can do to reinvigorate your home. 4. Reclaimed Wood and Cabinets What better time could you find to re-do your kitchen cabinets now that superior-quality reclaimed wood is so easy to obtain? It’s the natural way to revitalize your kitchen completely. Each panel of reclaimed wood evokes a compelling story – of long years hidden away in an old building, perhaps, or in the crumbling structure of a barn or fence. And a bit of that tale will survive in your reclaimed wood cabinets, crossing your mind at such times when you reach into them. 5. Reclaimed Wood as a Table A tabletop built of reclaimed wood can impart a ultra-current, emphatically different look to your dining room or home office. Partner the wood tones with your décor scheme for a cohesive look that satisfies your creative vision – while it leaves your guests in stunned admiration! 6. Bookcases of Reclaimed Wood Aside from the value we assign them otherwise, books make excellent decorative pieces. Set 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 highlighted and complemented in bookcases of genuine wood, too. And bookcases of reclaimed wood, due to their natural colors, knots, holes, scratches, and other markings, provide a particularly unusual, one-of-a-kind showcase. 7. Picture Frames of Reclaimed Wood The weathered, natural look of reclaimed wood is wonderfully apt for picture frames. Use it to showcase your favorite artwork and important photos in a most elegant manner. What’s just as notable that frames of reclaimed wood can be put together in a wide range of styles, thus they’ll harmonize with nearly any interior design. 8. Redo Your Headboard in Reclaimed Wood Nothing can lift the look of a bedroom like a smartly designed and constructed headboard. It’s really a matter of preference these days as to whether people want their headboard attached directly to the bed or attached to the wall behind the bed. Either way, a headboard adapted from reclaimed wood planking can be undeniably beautiful. It’s natural tones and weathered features are easily adapted to a broad range of styles, from antique to modern.
