As a homeowner in today’s world, being sustainable is becoming less and less of a trend and more and more like a way of life.
Especially for younger people who are just entering the home market and are switching from an apartment to their forever home, ensuring that their home is eco-friendly is near the top of their priorities. And, even current homeowners are looking to incorporate sustainable features in their remodels.
But, not only do homes need to have sustainable elements these days, but they still need to look good and exude a sense of quality. In other words, if a product or material in a home is eco-friendly, but it looks bad or doesn’t last a long time, then homeowners won’t want it in their home.
Enter reclaimed wood. Reclaimed wood — sometimes referred to as recycled wood — is wood that has been taken from an old building, barn, boat, etc. and is refurbished to be usable for fixtures, features, and other details in new homes.
Not only does reclaimed wood help combat the number of trees that are cut down every year by recycling old wood, but reclaimed wood is just as strong as new wood, meaning it’ll be strong and sturdy for years to come.
Reclaimed wood is no doubt on the rise when it comes to popular materials to use for your home — whether it’s a remodel or a new build. But, where are the best places to incorporate wood into your home? If you really want reclaimed wood in your house but aren’t entirely sure where the best place is to put it, don’t worry, we got you covered.
Here is a list of seven great ideas for reclaimed wood in your home!
