Reclaimed Wood Flooring Projects
Wood, the handiest construction material. Warm, friendly, it can suit any building idea and project. And when it comes to repurposing old wood, options are diverse and open to imagination. Below you can see some reclaimed wood flooring projects to help you find inspiration and prove you at the same time nothing is wasted, but only reused for various practical purposes. You get to save money, first of all, and then have that kind of satisfaction of a thing made with your own hands and, why not, of having a humble contribution to saving some of the scarce natural resources.
A chevron designed wood floor is an eye-catching sight, completely captivating. The first example thus shows us clearly that wood has an enormous potential in interior design, whether speaking of floors or other accessories.
Old wood pallets are the primary source when thinking of reusing wood for other purposes in our homes. The change is so dramatic and it is hard to believe it unless we had these pictures before our eyes. Scraped, painted and varnished, the old wood comes back to life under our very feet.
It’s not a general rule the floor sparks and we hide its original provenance under layers of varnish and paint. We can leave the material in its raw form, as seen in the image below, for a more original, rustic and classier look.
Some go even further and build a whole cabin out of wood pallets, not only floors. W little effort, will and imagination – ingredients are within reach and so is the construction material so success is guaranteed.
The next example in the reclaimed wood flooring projects is one that pins our look – a pattern designed floor, very whimsical in appearance. You may want to offset the black with lighter and warmer colors, either on the wall or in furniture.
You can also use old wood to build a cupboard, not only a floor. Put them together in the same room and you get an attractive chromatic combo and a focal point.
The last example is the climax of the DIY projects and have to admit we’ve never run into something like this before during our web searching. A wood log floor gives elegance, warmth and naturalness to a room which takes on a lot of vitality.
