4. Dress Up Your Cabinets with Reclaimed Wood

What better excuse could present itself 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 relates a compelling tale – of decades during which it languished in a forgotten building, maybe, or as part of a fallen barn or fence. And a small part of that narrative will live on in your reclaimed wood cabinets, coming to mind each time you’re around them.

5. Reclaimed Wood Makes a Great Table

Tabletops built of reclaimed wood can lend a trendy, decidedly unique look to your dining room or home office. Partner the subtle, natural hues of reclaimed wood with your décor to achieve a consistent, agreeable look that comforts you – as it “wows” your guests!

6. Bookcases of Reclaimed Wood

No matter what else we might hold dear about them, books make excellent decorative pieces. Leather, vinyl, buckram, or paperbound books and those with colorful dust jackets look especially pleasing on a coffee or end table, on a bookshelf, or in a large bookcase. Their agreeable variety is both differentiated and complemented in bookcases of genuine wood, too. And bookcases of reclaimed wood, given their natural colors, knots, holes, scratches, and other telling features, become a decidedly eye-filling, one-of-a-kind furnishing.

7. Pics “Pop” in Frames of Reclaimed Wood

The somewhat bleached, natural look of reclaimed wood is just so appropriate for picture frames. It actually can enhance your favorite artwork and important photos in a uniquely exciting manner. What’s equally noteworthy that frames of reclaimed wood can be put together in a multitude of styles, so they’ll harmonize with nearly any look you’ve established for your home.
