Adding a Reclaimed Wood WallPosted: May 23, 2016
Adding reclaimed wood to your interior is a quick way to introduce warmth and texture. Used in abundance, it has a rawness that can balance overly neutral or modern spaces and anchor sprawling floor plans. But while installing reclaimed-hardwood floors or countertops can get expensive with the amount of staining, sealing and labor needed, an accent wall of reclaimed wood can be a smaller investment that makes a big visual statement. Here’s what you need to know before getting started.
Project: Creating an easy to install feature wall using reclaimed wood.
Why: A wall paneled in reclaimed wood can transform even the smallest spaces.
Things to consider: Since the wood itself can have a lot of character, it’s important to consider balance in the space. Wood accent walls work best when they are truly an accent, celebrating a special “moment” in the design, rather than overpowering a room. Here that special moment is a striking staircase.
