Reclaimed lumber is a big trend in home interior design due to its rustic appeal and eco-friendly approach to décor. Some may think reclaimed lumber is not necessarily the best accent to their style; however the imperfections, neutral color and flexibility in design offer a great enhancement to any home. Reclaimed lumber paired with exotic wood can create a home straight from a magazine. The ideal pairing added to a space, big or small, will create a focal point and natural beauty within a home. Here are some ways to incorporate reclaimed lumber and exotic wood into your home.
Whether your goal is to create a room built around exotic wood and reclaimed lumber, or to incorporate them into subtle accent pieces, there are endless options. There is nothing more timeless and classic than an exotic lumber wood floor for a kitchen, living room or throughout the entire home. Choosing lumbers such as mahoganies, rosewoods, cedars and other exotic variations, will incorporate a unique and sometimes colorful touch to ordinary wood décor.
The beauty of natural wood in both exotic and reclaimed pieces, unlike manufactured wood, is that no two pieces are the same. The differentiation and uniqueness in each type make them stand out among other pieces in the home and it’s as though each piece has a story to tell. From color differentiations, knots and grain variations, exotic wood and reclaimed lumber provide focal points and an intricate design addition fit for any room. Using reclaimed wood for a fireplace mantle, coffee table or even a bench or seating area will add a rustic, vintage style that can pair with any type of décor, since wood has no “style,” except natural.
