The reclaimed wood or lumber is in high demand because of its limitless advantages as compared to new or non-seasoned green wood or lumber. For house furniture, reclaimed wood can be an alternative material. Regarding the strength and quality of the wood, reclaimed wood is hard to beat. Reclaimed wood can be up to 40 points sturdier on the Janka hardness scale compared to virgin wood, mostly because it is procured from old-growth trees instead of the usual first-generation trees for virgin wood. Some reclaimed wood is taken from old barns or structures and have stood the test of time and other elements. Reclaimed lumber furniture also has a certain rustic, classic look. It blends well with antique designs and staging plans, but also goes well with modern, contemporary furnishings, making it a very versatile option. You will find a wide variety of designs, colors, and textures that would suit the designing or staging plans you have in mind.
