Millions of bridges, homes, docks, and community buildings worldwide were eons ago constructed using virgin wood. However, like is the cycle of life, these structures come to their end and have to be knocked down. In the process of destroying old property, air-dried and beautifully seasoned reclaimed wood is obtained and is ready to be used to make something new and useful. Reclaimed wood has for a while now been considered a plentiful and premium material that is strong, durable, and very flexible due to its air-dried nature that takes centuries to develop.
Today there are reclaimed wood dining tables, rustic beds and cabinets, benches and chairs among many other furniture. Having been made by wood that is reclaimed, the furniture has a natural, soft, and a mature character and that has very interesting grains knots and unique patinas. Each furniture wears history proudly with imperfections, nicks, and groves. Each and every piece of furniture made from this wood is unique and tend to have a vintage feel as well as look. In addition, due to its pared and warm look, it complements the designs of most homes as well as offers a balance. You could use the reclaimed wood to remodel the bathroom, install wooden floors, or even add wood paneling.
In addition to the above, reclaimed lumber has environmental benefits. When it comes to flooring especially, you have to choose between two evils. Petroleum based materials that are synthetic which include carpeting or resources that are newly milled such as wood floors. The reclaimed wood products steer clear of environmental hazards of both of the choices above. Unlike the carpet, manufacturing process meant to convert reclaimed lumber does not pollute the environment heavily. Also, unlike the virgin trees, reclaimed wood furniture does not require a lot of trees to be harvested from forests.
