Spectacular and Unique? Try Reclaimed Wood.

Every once in a while you come across an interior area that just jumps out at you. I looks elegant and rustic at the same time, with a kind of a vintage look and charm that tells you this is a place with a lot of class. It could be an upscale restaurant, the office of a law firm, or the home of a friend you are visiting. Whatever the setting, the room captures your attention and lingers in your memory.

Something about wood, especially antique or reclaimed wood, proclaims distinction and good taste, with a sense of luxury.

This charming material comes from antique barns and houses, and reclaimed wood offers a uniquely rustic choice. A dark grain and variation in texture provide a striking impression and gives a noble personality to the room. According to your taste, you can either leave reclaimed planks as the are for a true weathered rustic look, or you can have them remilled for a smoother finish. For a finish, you can choose from among durable urethane or classic tung oil,  which is a durable, water-resistant, natural finish that brings out the warmth of the wood like no other finish can.

Pine, and longleaf pine in particular, provides some of the best and most beautiful reclaimed lumber. This wood develops attractive, cozy warmth as it ages and takes on some color variation from plank to plank. True pine has greater durability than classic floor choices like oak and ash, making it a great choice for high traffic areas.

How Affordable Are Granite Countertops?

What do people envisions when they think about granite?

Nothing beats stone countertops when it comes to elegance and the “Wow!” effect. Visitors to your home cannot help but be impressed with granite, quartz, or marble in your kitchen or bathrooms. If the way your home looks influences the way people will look at you, you will not get a better effect than stone.

Granite, in particular, gives us a very attractive and interesting countertop surface. The very name speaks to that: “granite” comes from the Latin granum, ‘grain,’ referring to the coarse-grained structure, made up of a combination of quartz and feldspar, produced under conditions of intense heat, such as in a volcano.  It is the granular pattern that gives granite its variegated and unique beauty.
