Add Character to Your Walls with Reclaimed Wood
When you are decorating your home or business and want to add some character, reclaimed wood can be one of the best options. Not only is it affordable, but it is also very versatile. You can incorporate the wood in a number of different ways so that you can be eco-friendly and trendy at the same time.
Below are a few different styles that you can utilize, though it is important to first look at photos of wood walls to see which appeal to you.
Smooth & Classy
One of the easiest ways to add character to a wall is to cover the entire thing in reclaimed wood. How creative you get is entirely up to you. One option is to use the same type of wood all over the wall so that you create a paneled look. To get this look, you want to try and get flooring so that you can count on the wood being flat and in good condition.
An “artsy” option is to obtain wood from many different sources. This can add a lot of flair to a room and also some unique colors. You can have wood that is sourced from barns, shutters, and all sorts of other places.
Older planks can be used on walls to provide a very nautical look. It will make the inside of a room seem like it is on a ship somewhere. You can also choose to paint the wood an aqua blue or other color to give it a different aesthetic look.
Wooden wall can be very creative, specifically when it is a textured look. If you get small beams, you can layer them all the way down the wall. Then, you can go back and add a second beam on top of some of them so that some parts of the wall stick out further than other parts.
Wooden walls can go with just about any motif you want to create. It is simply a matter of determining what kind of wood you get and whether you want to leave it rustic and natural looking or give it a glossy look with a layer of polyurethane. The wood can also be painted in a variety of different colors so that you can add a splash of personality into any room.
You may want to work with an interior designer who can give you some insight on some of the latest trends. It’s also important to find a lumber yard that can provide you with high quality wood to use on your walls. How you personally decide to install the wood can even help create some added personality and uniqueness.
