Achieve Ideal Style Using Reclaimed Beams

Reclaimed beams are here to stay as an interior decorating must! They are an eco-friendly option that add character and intrigue to any space. Not just for the rustic style, reclaimed beams can be stained, painted, or fresh sawn to meet any style or application. Where you are building a new home or remodeling an existing one, here are a few must have concepts to add an element of reclaimed wood to your home.

1) Create a feeling of Old New Orleans luxury: Draw the eye up by adding fresh sawn support beams paired with a wood paneled ceiling with wood beam trusses and wrought iron railing.

2) Create a custom mantle: These home owners kept the original patina of the beam and designed their own custom piece to add a rustic yet modern feel to their living room space. 

3) Step back in time with European grandeur: Whitewashed beams paired with custom corbels and an oak floor give this home the antique, majestic feel of a French Provencial chateau. 

4) Summer evenings in an outdoor oasis: Reclaimed beams are a gorgeous addition to any outdoor living space, adding charm and luxury while blending with the natural surroundings.

5) Create a farmhouse style kitchen: Kitchens and exposed, reclaimed beams are a match made in heaven. These home owners opted for a rustic, farm house style kitchen which paired perfectly with original surface beams.

6) Retreat to traditional mountain living: Rounded beams in the log cabin style create a cozy, traditional style commonly found in mountain homes. Reclaimed beams are a key element in creating this look.
