Salvage and save money by using reclaimed wood for a barn door. Go big with the doors and embellish the area with a metal star, which can be found on the cheap at antique shops and junk shops. The weathered tones of the wood match with this star in this space designed by Cloth & Kind, and created by Athens Building Co.
Although slightly unconventional, this sliding barn door in reclaimed wood is a fun and offbeat means of introducing a new bathroom renovation brought to you by Pure Design Interiors! The door makes a strong statement in its hardware, dark color and rolling closure, yet radiates a whimsical charm nonetheless.
Add two simple reclaimed-wood slabs, and presto! This recessed niche, just inside the backyard door, becomes a mudroom. Barker Freeman Design Office architects needed little more than the shelving and a few hooks to create an ideal setup for removing shoes and stashing flotsam. Keeping the wall color the same as in the rest of the room allows for continuity, but the paler hue on the surrounding wall helps to define the space.
The architect created a tall, grand space for the living room. Splashes of color in the furnishings and accessories work well with the neutral palette. The use of the reclaimed beams truly showed off the artistry of the builder, Ron. Knowing that the reclaimed beams would be a focal point, designer Kristina Crestin brought in a dark door and window sashes to add a bit more dimension.
The minimalist design of this living room is highlighted by its use of open floor space, with a wall of bookshelves elevated by steel pipes. Reclaimed wood flooring connects with the wood ceiling and gives a nod to the home's sustainable design. The homeowner, a professor of environmental studies, requested a home that runs on solar power, recycles gray water and captures rain water in cisterns. All interior doors are built from recycled flooring.
Details like the shabby chic wood paneling, antique-style coffee barrel and an outhouse-style door on the changing room give this recreation room loads of character. The red metal cabinets offer a sleek, updated contrast to all the country charm.
Dark hardwood flooring and a corrugated metal ceiling define this rustic-industrial home office. A custom light fixture composed of plumbing fittings adds interest overhead, while a custom, sliding track barn door provides privacy for an adjoining guest room. Chalkboard paint on the reclaimed wood doors is a fun and functional touch.
As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, the aim of this kitchen remodel was an updated farmhouse design, so designers left vintage elements, such as the glass paneled cabinets and exposed brick, in the space. Then, they added a reclaimed wood door to cover the entrance to the pantry. Updates in the space include a durable, quartz countertop, a white subway tile backsplash, and modern, stainless steel appliances.
