At once trendy and classic, reclaimed wood interiors are an excellent way to add timeless warmth and style to your home.  From reclaimed timber finishes on tables and cupboards to salvaged wood walls that are half-sanded and still have printing on them, this look makes a strong and beautiful statement in any room of the house.  Take a look at some of these ideas for home improvements using reclaimed wood pieces!

1.  Add a layer of history and character to your home with recycled wood flooring.  Reclaimed Flooring Company often has deals on gorgeous wood flooring – always high quality and priced to move at under £25 per square metre!

2.  With pubs closing at what some would call an alarming rate, many pubs-turned-homes lose their beautiful wood bars to landfill.  An important salvager’s tip?  Hunt these down and give them a good home!  Ranging from free to £125 per square metre (depending upon whether you forage for it yourself or go through a contractor), this can be an extremely affordable (and eco-friendly) way to add flavour to your kitchen worktops.  See an example of what Trunk Reclaimed did with this lovely kitchen:

3.  For a unique, unpolished and eclectic look, reclaimed wood accents are the way to go.  A recent post on Design*Sponge featured this stunning before-and-after project undertaken by a couple in Dallas, Texas.  If you don’t have the time, energy or know-how to duplicate it, though, take a look at these great ideas from Salvage Secrets and Houzz.  Other understated but rejuvenating accents include exposed wood beams, mantlepieces, headboards, and more.

4.  As always, an instant home face-lift is possible (and affordable) with new furniture.  Eat, Sleep, Live – an eco-friendly company in the UK that uses reclaimed materials – has a great selection of all things recycled and beautiful!
