As you remove the holiday decorations from your home, maybe you’re looking ahead at ways to remodel, in the new year.
Home designers are identifying hot new trends for 2017.
Angie’s List says old wood is getting some new life. Reclaimed wood as it’s called, comes from many places, including old barns and buildings. Craftsmen dismantle, refine and re-imagine the old wood.
Often it becomes part of an accent wall in a home, or other art work.
“We totally transform these materials from their previous use into something completely new but yet show the history and the previous use as part of the features of that material.”
Angie says reclaimed wood is more expensive than other types of wood because of the time and skill it takes to acquire, treat and re-purpose it.
