Warm up your Home with Reclaimed Wood

There are very few ways to warm up a space better than the rich tones of reclaimed wood. While reclaimed wood floors are growing ever more popular, even something as simple as a panel or shelf brings a great natural element to a room — and it works in anything from contemporary to traditional, adding character and warmth. Tables are an easy solution when adding reclaimed wood, but there are so many ways to incorporate this environmentally friendly trend into your home.

There’s nothing like the weathered and time-worn feel of reclaimed wood floors. Whether you’re restoring old floors found underneath a layer of carpet or purchasing something like the Mohawk Hardwood pictured here, there is something nostalgic about a floor that has been lived on.Wood4
