3 Reasons Every Modern Home Should Feature Reclaimed Wood

Taking care of your home is a big deal. The amount of time and money you put into your home is astronomical over time, and for most of us, it’s the biggest investment of our lives. From upgrading your water system to the decorations in your home, the more you invest the more you receive!

For example, many homes with water treatment issues delay fixing the problem as it can be easier to just buy drinking water. Instead of just installing a countertop water filter system, it’s easier or more ‘convenient’ to buy bottled. While the upfront purchase may be more expensive, the long term choice is financially better and you end up with a higher quality product! This sentiment is especially true for furniture.

With an enormous variety of materials ranging from cold concrete or stainless steel, endless types of synthetic plastics, to long-lasting wood furniture and more, choosing high-quality furniture can be both exciting and complex. Where to start? New, reclaimed, manufactured, eco-friendly, handcrafted? Not to mention countless styles and finishes one could choose…

While each material over the years has certainly had its place and moment in time, none are nearly as timeless or stunning as solid wood furniture. With beautiful walnut trees, strong oaks and maple trees from Canada, as well as other knotty hardwoods, there is a perfect fit for every modern house. The beauty and superior quality of handcrafted signature pieces will draw the eye of all who enter your home, and a well-cared-for piece of wood furniture can last for generations.

Among the many options available for wood furniture, reclaimed wood is a material these days that gets a respectable amount of attention, and this attention is for a good reason. Reclaimed wood offers many exceptional reasons to be chosen when furnishing a beautiful modern home, and below are the three main reasons to choose reclaimed wood over other options.
