Reclaimed wood brings inspiration to commercial building

Gone are the days when barn wood and reclaimed lumber only graced niche projects like rustic mountain cabins or homeowners' basements.  Now the beauty and character of antique wood has gone mainstream and typically gets specified by architects and designers for large commercial projects like hotels, restaurants, doctor's offices, coffee shops, and even public works projects.  Reclaimed Lumber Products frequently has their material sourced to liven up and add some organic warmth in areas that were previously considered off limits.

The rules and strict standards have been thrown out the window!  Bring some personality to the party by adding a splash of reclaimed wood to change the stark white and cold stainless that used to be the standard of commercial decorating.  Now our reclaimed wood wall paneling products can introduce a variety of color and lighten the mood.

Would you like to have fun with barn doors in a hotel?  Not only are our sliding barn wood doors practical with privacy and saving space, but they also add a whole another level or artwork and decoration on the wall that is not achieved by a normal paint grade swing door.

Since the feeling of reclaimed wood is more casual there are less concerns about making a mistake with color matching tones.  This gives the professional who is specifying the finishes greater flexibility to pick complimentary coverings and shades of color.  When somebody asks what color our Skip Sanded Idaho Barnwood Blend of Accent Wall Paneling is it covers the full range of natural color tones.  Each piece has a variety of colors; every batch has a different combination of blends.  The beauty comes out in the unique personality.  Don't try to be overly specific because that is trying to paint nature into a corner.  Our natural products have variation because they are real, authentic barn wood.  Faux patterns and man-made distressed materials have more predictable and repeatable color results.

Reclaimed lumber planks made into tables could not only bring playfulness to a restaurant setting but also be more forgiving by hiding the abuse that comes from the wear and tear of non-stop use.  Do you not want to fret about the high traffic on wood floors?  Consider using our kitchen sink engineered hardwood floor; this engineered hardwood is perfect for commercial applications such as glue down over concrete.  The extra thick wear layer sloughs off the abuse and the turn of the century saw marks and old patina masks the damage.
