Reclaimed Wood Paneling
Wood paneling can be a great addition to many homes and offices. No matter the style home you have, there are plenty of ways that you can include reclaimed wood paneling. From full walls, islands, and accent walls, to ceilings, there’s sure to be something that you like.
Reclaimed Wood Wall Paneling
Wood paneling on walls has become extremely popular as both a DIY project and a professional way to finish walls. You might have heard of pallet walls or other similar types of wood wall paneling. While pallet walls are often DIY friendly, reclaimed wood walls, aren’t quite as DIY friendly, but they can be if you’re willing to learn.
Reclaimed Wood Ceiling Paneling
Wood ceiling paneling is another great way to add some flare to your home. While this type of wood paneling is more suited for a specific taste, it still adds a lot to a home. You might think of cabins and lake homes as great examples of wood ceilings, but you’d be surprised at how it might add a great flair to your kitchen, living, or dining room within your home. Be sure to take a look at some of the pictures we have of wood ceiling paneling on our website.
Reclaimed Wood Flooring
Wood flooring is the best of the reclaimed wood projects. Not because it’s more special in any way, but because everyone loves wood flooring. If it’s not real wood, it’s tile and vinyl styled to look like real wood. Reclaimed wood flooring is also a great way to add a conversation piece to your home. When you have guests over, you can talk with them about the amazing project that it was to take 100-year-old wood and add it to your home.

These individual wood mantels are each in their own way, a beautiful piece of art that can tie your whole room together.
If you haven’t ever looked into adding a wood mantel over your fireplace, then you’re definitely missing out on something special. Check out the pictures on our website for a more in-depth look at what goes into mantels. These are truly great pieces that make a beautiful wood project for any home.
Reclaimed Wood Timbers
Wood timbers are often used along the ceilings of homes or buildings. Think of exposed wood beams when you think of wood timbers. While ceiling beams aren’t the only use fo these timbers, it is a common use for sure. Reclaimed timbers can also be used for pillars in homes or offices. We offer a variety of different style timbers from nicely finished to rustic or darker tones. A wood timber might be exactly the reclaimed wood project you need to add a touch of elegance to your space.
Reclaimed Wood Doors
Doors are often the focal point in a home. Especially from the exterior of a home, a front door can really be a beautiful eye-catching opportunity. But, when it comes to reclaimed wood doors, you might think of a beautiful barn door. Barn doors are a great way to add a rustic element to almost any home design. They’re an efficient use of space, beautiful, and are sustainably sourced. You can visit our website to find more pictures of the different wood doors that we’ve made in the past.
Benefits of Choosing Reclaimed Wood
Reclaimed wood is more expensive than your standard woods found in Home Depot or Menards. But, having a piece of history in your house that adds value and beauty is truly priceless. Reclaimed wood projects aren’t for everyone, but they are a great way to get the whole family involved in an exciting project that can bring some life to your home.
Another benefit of reclaimed wood is that it’s sustainably sourced. You don’t have to worry about your carbon footprint. You’re doing the Earth a favor by using reclaimed lumber. Instead of just letting the wood sit and rot on an abandoned or run-down building, it can be transformed into a beautiful wood project for your home.
