Reclaimed Wood: Beauty and Sustainability

We live in a world of diminishing natural resources and environmental issues. At Chicago Fabrications, we love reclaimed wood! Basically reclaimed wood are wood pieces retrieved or recovered from different sources – such as old houses, barns, and barrels. Instead of discarding the wood from the old, torn down source, it is utilized and made into another product. Its use reduces the demand for newly chopped down timber. Its weathered quality brings about a unique patina and “imperfections” that infuse living spaces with texture, contrast, and warmth.

 

 

Reclaimed wood has many uses. It can be used as panels, benches, tables, doors, and many more. Using reclaimed wood in floorings reduce carbon impression. The energy used in making wood floorings is lessened compared to shiny new ones. The cost needed in making reclaimed products is relatively lower. Time and money are saved in the collection and handling of reclaimed wood. Utilizing reclaimed wood also reduced pollution – this is because instead of burning down the discarded materials, it is used. The pollution emitted in the process of making new products are reduced as well.
