1. Reclaimed Wood and Windows

For the first time ever, you can easily own reclaimed wood as a window treatment. Sunburst Shutters now offers a plantation shutter created from certified reclaimed wood. We worked in tandem with Stikwood, an FSC-certified company, to provide the finest reclaimed wood from which to produce these shutters. In truth, Sunburst is the lone company providing reclaimed wood shutters in the Denver area. We took the reclaimed wood you want and used it to create a louvered shutter that’s incredibly beautiful and remarkably functional at the same time.

Reclaimed wood can be a window treatment like no other. It helps, of course, when your reclaimed wood shutters are viewed by many as valid artistic pieces in and of themselves. And Sunburst makes sure they are. You’ll soon realize there’s just as much to like about their operation as there is to like about their look. Tilt the louvers open to admit more light. And tilt them closed to bring out the weathered look of reclaimed wood on your window. Don’t rely only on our word for it, though.

2. Reclaimed Wood and Walls

Nothing brings the outside into your home as invitingly as a reclaimed wood wall. Reclaimed wood paneling makes your wall distinctive and adds a comforting feel to the room. Regardless of whether you have a artwork, TV, bookcase, or fireplace to complement, a reclaimed wood wall will look gorgeous behind it and produce precisely the effect you’ve sought.

3. Reclaimed Wood for Your Floor

Looking to redo a floor in your house? Any wood flooring can add warmth and coziness to a room, but flooring of reclaimed wood has a singular beauty perfected in the time – typically decades – the wood has been left outside to endure the effects of nature. Regardless of whether you love the outdoors or simply love the look and feel of weathered wood, you’ll fall head over heels in love with what a reclaimed wood floor can do to upgrade your home.

4. Use Reclaimed Wood in Cabinets

This is the perfect time to give your kitchen cabinets a do-over with reclaimed wood. It’s the natural way to revitalize your kitchen as a whole. Every panel of reclaimed wood evokes a fascinating tale – of considerable time [[spent in an old building, for instance, or as part of a barn or fence. And a bit of that story will survive in your reclaimed wood cabinets, coming to mind every time you reach into them.

5. Reclaimed Wood Makes a Great Table

A tabletop made or consisting of reclaimed wood can add a modern, emphatically fresh ambiance to your dining room or home office. Unite the wood tones with your overall interior design to create a pleasing, well-orchestrated look that fulfills your expectations – while it elicits praise from guests!

6. Using Reclaimed Wood for Bookcases

However else we may view them, books make wonderful decorative pieces. Arrange a book or group of books on a coffee table or end table, on a bookshelf, or in a big bookcase, and they’re certain to capture the attention of guests. Their delightful variety is both highlighted and complemented in bookcases of natural wood, too. And bookcases of reclaimed wood, due to their natural colors, knots, holes, scratches, and other telling features, create a singularly distinctive, one-of-a-kind furnishing.

7. Picture Frames of Reclaimed Wood

The plain, natural look of reclaimed wood is wonderfully apt for picture frames. It’s just what’s needed to show off your favorite artwork and important photos in a decidedly splendid manner. Note also that frames of reclaimed wood can be fashioned in a variety of styles, so they’ll complement nearly any look you’ve established for your home.

8. Reclaimed Wood and Headboards

Few things can refresh the look of a bedroom like a smartly designed and constructed headboard.

There’s no single way, as you might expect, to attach a headboard. It can be – and often is – fastened in some way to the bed itself. But a lot of homeowners today prefer it attached to the wall behind their bed. Either way, a headboard made of reclaimed wood planking can be particularly stunning. It’s natural tones and imperfections are easily adapted to a multiplicity of styles, from antique to modern. With reclaimed wood, your artistic talent can definitely run free, letting you create the headboard of your dreams!
