This interior design trend is great for those looking to make a statement with their home. Whether you are looking for an eclectic kitchen with reclaimed wood cabinets, or a comfortable home office with reclaimed wood wall paneling, this is the material you need to try.
Before you dive into your reclaimed wood project, keep these tips in mind!
Before you go and knock down a barn (please don’t without permission!), keep in mind that it’s in your best interest to utilize the expertise of a professional. Old buildings, such as those used for reclaimed wood, have been up for ages and were not built with the latest building techniques in mind. Therefore, the building may be incredibly weak and will create a dangerous situation for amateurs attempting to demo the building on their own.
Instead, use a professional who understands and has vast experience in building demolition and tear down. Not only will you be able to salvage more material, you’ll also experience a safer situation.
Since you are reusing material, you can feel great knowing that you are helping to save the environment. Homeowners looking for eco-friendly remodeling or custom home building options can have peace of mind using reclaimed wood for their project.
As with any material used in remodeling or custom home building projects, there are disadvantages and advantages to the product. Reclaimed wood is no exception.
