A lot of people tend to overlook reclaimed wood as a contemporary style piece, thinking of it instead as just a rustic application product. We’re happy to see, though, that more and more people and designers are using reclaimed wood in a contemporary space to add some personality and warmth. If you’re interested in adding this design element to your space, try one of these contemporary uses for reclaimed wood:
We were kind of literal when we said “warmth” earlier. A fireplace is generally the focal point of a room, so it doesn’t need a lot of flare surrounding it. Reclaimed wood can provide just the right amount of eye-catching design when it is used as a wall surrounding a fire place. It pairs especially well with brick to bring a little bit of the outdoors into an otherwise urban setting.
A reclaimed wood ceiling does more than add warmth to any room in your home. It also saves you time. That’s because reclaimed wood used on areas that are not walked on can basically be left as it is, without any additional touching up or finishing. Try using it as the ceiling in your kitchen to add warmth and style.
If you’re not quite ready to devote an entire wall or ceiling to reclaimed wood, but still like the idea of the added style element it can bring to a room, try it out first as a headboard. You’ll add instant warmth to your bedroom, and you’ll also get a chance to see how much you like the look of reclaimed wood in your home.
Whether you are decorating a home or office, reclaimed wood is a simple yet elegant way to add some style and depth to your space without overpowering the rest of your design. To find the right reclaimed wood project to fit your space, contact us today.
