Three Ways To Use Reclaimed Floorboards

About Reclaimed Floorboards

Reclaimed floorboards are a popular choice for homeowners who are looking to add character, warmth, and a touch of history to their living spaces. These boards often salvaged from old buildings and homes, have a unique patina and texture that can’t be found in new wood. In this blog, we’ll explore three creative ways to use reclaimed floorboards in your home.

Create A Statement Wall

One of the most unique ways to use reclaimed floorboards is to create a statement wall in your home. This can be done in a variety of ways, such as by using the boards to create a large accent wall in your living room or bedroom, or by creating a feature wall behind a fireplace or TV. To create a statement wall, first, select the boards you’d like to use, then sand them down to remove any rough spots and prepare them for staining or painting. Once you have your boards ready, you can arrange them in a pattern that suits your design style, such as a herringbone pattern or a random mix of widths and lengths. This can create a unique focal point that will add warmth and texture to your living space.

Build A Rustic Headboard

If you’re looking for a way to add some rustic charm to your bedroom, consider using reclaimed floorboards to build a headboard. You can create a simple design by nailing the boards together and attaching them to the wall, or you can get creative and add some additional elements like shelving or lighting. A reclaimed wood headboard adds warmth and character to a bedroom and is a great DIY project for those looking to add a personal touch to their space.

Add A Rustic Touch To Your Ceilings

If you’re looking to add a touch of rustic charm to your home, consider using reclaimed floorboards to create a unique ceiling treatment. This can be done by attaching the boards directly to the ceiling using a nail gun or adhesive. This technique can be used to create a cozy, cottage-like feel in a bedroom or living room, or to add warmth and character to a kitchen or dining area. Reclaimed floorboards can also be used to create a coffered ceiling, which can add depth and dimension to a space.

Time To Get Creative

In conclusion, reclaimed floorboards are a versatile material that can be used in a variety of creative ways to add warmth, texture, and history to your home. By following these tips, you can create a unique and personalized living space that is both functional and beautiful.

"Excellent product. I would highly recommend the finished article looks great. Even the delivery driver helped unload. I would suggest to anyone buying to order slightly more than you need, my floorer (I think recommend about 4% more than you would need) I would suggest a little more as I got a little close to finish. This was just down to straightining up the ends of the boards."
