Why Reclaimed Wood Furniture Never Goes Out of Style
Decorating your home can be a way of expressing yourself. You can showcase heirlooms among signature furniture pieces. That way, you can keep them compatible with current design trends. You’ll create a unique space for you and your family to enjoy. A space that reflects your own personality and accommodates the styles of previous generations.
One way of tailoring your home décor to incorporate the old along with the new. Mix different designs into your home that highlight your personal tastes but also pay homage to the past. You may already have a favorite design theme or follow a traditional scheme. You may like to experiment with different design options and combinations.
Don’t forget to keep up to date with the latest trends.
If a variety of interior design combinations is your thing, then you can easily search online for solid wood furniture ideas. Keeping up with trends online is a great way to keep your home in style. All while gaining access to a wide variety of new ideas to try out.
Another way you can achieve a great look is by blending modern styles with family heirlooms and handcrafted, reclaimed wood furniture. Reclaimed wood matches any style or décor. It is a great way to add a unique touch to your interior design.
Imagine a modern, efficient kitchen with all the bells and whistles of a new home. Now add a center island made of reclaimed cherry wood from an 1800’s barn. Then end it with a countertop of your choice. Imagine taking your modern bedroom and adding a recently refurbished oak washstand. One that belonged to your great-great-grandmother and was handed down to you.
Pieces of wooden furniture of fine quality never fail to add to the overall appeal of a room. The best part is they never go out of style – and they also make great conversation pieces. As your design tendencies change over the years, your signature pieces will always be the spotlight of the room. Quality, handmade furniture has stood the test of time. Plus, reclaimed wood will always match any style or décor.
Possibilities are endless.
If you decide to buy new reclaimed wood furniture or a restored family heirloom, you’ll want to find a trusted and reputable furniture maker. One who has expertise working with antiques and reclaimed wood. You’ll also want to make sure that they have experience working with your favorite wood. Since oak, maple, cherry or pine are treated differently.
Make sure that they’re as focused on their delivery methods as they are on the quality of their workmanship. Do a little research. Find a company or craftsperson with years of experience along with trusted reviews of their services.
A good one can help you create your own personal piece of signature furniture. On the flip side, if you’re a DIY kind of person, you can always refer to resources like Wood Profits so you can create your own projects.
The addition of a treasured antique or a handmade reclaimed wood item can really add extra appeal. There’s just something about mixing the old and the new. Melding those crisp, clean furniture lines with pieces that have gracefully aged over time. All that seems to appeal to all of our sensibilities at once.
