Have you always wanted to incorporate reclaimed wood into your home? Maybe you’re building a home and feel like an exposed wood wall could be the perfect thing to finish up the project.
There’s a lot of different things that you can do to incorporate reclaimed wood into your home. In fact, the possibilities are close to endless.
Today we’ll be breaking down some reclaimed wood wall ideas. These ideas will vary from simple to more complex, but each of them would work in almost any house.
Let’s dive in and see how you could use reclaimed wood in your home to create the perfectly unique reclaimed wood wall to set your home apart from the rest.
Reclaimed Wood Wall Ideas
Wood wall paneling tells a story—especially reclaimed wood paneling. The beauty in it is the life that it’s lived before coming to rest on a wall in your home. While it’s not something you would in everyone’s home, we think that there is definitely a place in your house for a wood-paneled accent wall.
You might be wondering how to get started. Do you pick up some pallets and add them to a wall yourself or purchase reclaimed wood from a place like MR Timbers and have it professionally installed? It’s hard to say if there is a right answer because it truly depends on the situation. Here are some of our favorite reclaimed wood wall ideas.
DIY Pallet Walls
Do it yourself has taken on a whole new meaning today, and the projects that individuals are attempting to accomplish themselves continue to grow larger and larger. Pallet walls are no exception from this. A few years back, pallet walls became extremely popular, and while you might not see them on social media quite as much, they are still very desirable.
If you’re thinking of building your own pallet wall, check out this blog post for some helpful tips.
Corners and Around Stairs
Half walls or smaller walls that lead up to stairways are great spots for reclaimed wood. These walls often see a lot of traffic and can be hard to keep clean—something you won’t have to worry quite as much about with wood walls.
These make for beautiful additions to homes and can help to give a natural rustic and welcoming look to a modern home.
Corner Wood Paneled Wall
A corner wall made from wood paneling is a great way to spice up a room. The above wood wall works both as a half wall to dived different parts of the apartment and also as a beautiful addition to the industrial architecture. Tying in these different elements is a great way to break up a home and give it its own unique feeling.
Paneling a Basement Wall
The basement is a perfect place to add a reclaimed wood wall. This is especially true if you’re looking to create a game room, entertainment center, or man cave. Most often, basements can feel somewhat dull, and they need a rustic, industrial element to add some flare into the layout and design.
As you can see in the above photo, the wood wall has become a focal point that different pieces of furniture throughout the space can match or contrast. A basement wall is a perfect way to incorporate reclaimed wood paneling in your home.
Wood Paneled Office Wall
Adding an accent wall to your home office gives off a professional yet, modern look. It also can warm up a space that often feels cold. The example in the picture here shows a small office wall with reclaimed barn wood.
Starting with smaller walls is a great way to dip your toes into the idea of wood paneling without having to jump all in. We’d love to help you find the right wood to complete a small project like this.
Reclaimed Wood Mantel and Fireplace
You might not consider this a wall, but we love adding reclaimed wood fireplace mantels to any home with a fireplace. Better than just a mantel is adding reclaimed wood around it to give it an even more warm and inviting feeling.
We love the above example. Especially the ways that the wood has been used to accent different pieces in the room. If you’re looking at adding a fireplace mantel to your home, be sure to check out some of the different options that we offer here. You’ll also be able to see more examples of the mantels that we’ve made for our customers.
Decorating with Reclaimed Wood Walls
After you’ve installed your wood-paneled walls, you’ll need to start thinking about how you can decorate the room to reflect the beauty of the wood. We recently published a blog post talking all about decorating with reclaimed wood. Here are a few key takeaways:
- Identify the tone of the wood – In order to match it or accept it, you have to know what it is.
- Decide on your focal point – What do you want to be the eye-grabber in the room.
- Use stone and tile to add different textures and elements.
With some reclaimed wood wall ideas, inspiration from Pinterest, and a little bit of time, your home will be looking great!
