If it’s excitement you want in your home, reclaimed wood has more of it to offer than just about any other wood option. Reclaimed wood paneling accentuates your wall and imparts a comforting feel to the room.

Considering the reclaimed wood’s growing popularity, now is the ideal time to do over your kitchen cabinets.

Each panel of reclaimed wood conveys a compelling story – of long years [[spent in an old building, maybe, or as part of a barn or fence. And a bit of that story will survive in your reclaimed wood cabinets, coming to mind every time you and others admire them.

5. Reclaimed Wood as a Table

A tabletop made of reclaimed wood can impart a contemporary, emphatically different touch to your dining room or home office. Unite the wood tones with your décor scheme for a cohesive look that satisfies your creative vision – as it leaves your guests in stunned admiration!

6. Reclaimed Wood for Bookcases

However else we may regard them, books make excellent decorative pieces. Leather, vinyl, buckram, or paperbound books and those with colorful dust jackets look great on a coffee or end table, on a bookshelf, or in a large bookcase. Their agreeable variety is both highlighted and brought together in bookcases of real wood, too. And bookcases of reclaimed wood, due to their natural colors, knots, holes, scratches, and other telling features, provide a decidedly eye-filling, one-of-a-kind décor item.

7. Picture Frames of Reclaimed Wood

The mellow, natural look of reclaimed wood is ideal for picture frames. It’s just what’s needed to show off 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 multitude of styles, thus they’ll harmonize with nearly any interior design.
