There are many reasons you might want to decorate using furniture made from reclaimed wood. First of all, reclaimed wooden furniture has a charming, rustic appeal. Additionally, it is an environmentally friendly choice. It is versatile and well-suited for use in many different types of furniture pieces. The following are four of your most compelling options for the best furniture pieces to make from reclaimed wood.
If you need stylish chairs that can integrate well into most interior decorating schemes, reclaimed wooden chairs are worth your consideration. They are ideal for use in the dining room or also for placing in prominent spots in your living room or home office.
There are many possible ways to design and style a coffee table using reclaimed wood. This material lends itself well to making large, sturdy tables that have a square or rectangular table top. This style can be particularly eye-catching because the large surface area of the table top showcases the beauty of the natural wood grain. It is also possible to make interesting shaped table tops using reclaimed wood. Possible choices include round, hexagonal and irregularly-shaped table top designs.
Reclaimed wood wall shelves can be useful, versatile and multi-functional. There are many possible configurations to consider. Some of these pieces include hooks you can use for hanging up your keys or organizing accessories like necklaces or neckties. Some of them have white boards or cork boards you can use for writing important reminders in a prominent place. Some of them offer space for placing flower-filled vases, candles, picture frames or other decorative details.
Reclaimed wood TV stands are ideal in cases where you don’t have enough wall space available to wall-mount your TV – perhaps because you have many windows or you’ve already placed a sofa and wall unit along the walls in the room you’re decorating. A reclaimed wood TV stand can also incorporate shelving and drawers, giving you additional storage options for organizing any old-school media items like DVDs that you still might happen to have hanging around at your place.
Of course, these are not your only possible choices for furniture pieces that can be made from reclaimed wood. However, the above-mentioned items are some of the most popular reclaimed wood furniture styles that people are currently choosing to decorate with. Please keep in mind that it is also possible to use reclaimed wood for creating your flooring and some fixed architectural details such as mantelpieces, beams and doors. We hope this information is helpful to you as you consider all your possible interior design options.
