Wood Accent Wall Ideas

Barnwood and reclaimed wood accent wall ideas have recently become tremendously popular DIY projects. Reclaimed wood and barnwood is popular for many reasons: the wood’s unique appearance, its contribution to green building or LEED certification, the history of the wood’s origins and the wood’s physical quality characteristics such as strength, stability and durability.

The unique, one-of-a-kind look, rustic feel and character-filled planks used to create DIY reclaimed wood accent walls lend well to wood accent wall ideas and projects of all size and shape and allow users to achieve a finished wall that simply can’t be replicated with new or engineered wood products. Creative DIYers all over the place have incorporated reclaimed wood into stunning wood accent wall ideas, wainscoting, ceilings, floors, stairs, beams, shelves, cabinets, frames, wall art, islands, bars and more. Beyond aesthetic appeal and utility, reclaimed wood is also valued as an eco-friendly product, which creates no new waste, emissions or harmful byproducts.
