One quick search of new home trends on Pinterest and you’re apt to see an unlikely result…..Reclaimed Barn wood!
The history and story behind the barn materials is fascinating, some barns as old as 150 years. There’s no shortage of manufacturer’s creating new furniture and flooring and making it look distressed, but it’s quite appealing to find naturally distressed barn wood. The look is transformative and adds depth and beauty to your home.
So what should you consider when purchasing reclaimed barn wood?
According to Kevin Fults, owner of Woodstock Architecture Products in Las Vegas, it’s important to make sure the barn wood is processed correctly. His company removes nails, properly dries out the material and cuts the barn wood into interlocking planks of various sizes. The planks can be left natural or stained various colors of brown, red or grey. Starting at $10 a square foot, it’s an affordable high end designer look that can be achieved within budget.
