Saved! Great Salvage Style

If you are looking for a sure fire way to add character and history to your space, using salvaged and re-purposed items is the way to go! Searching flea markets, vintage stores and architectural salvage locations isn't for everyone. However, if you enjoy the hunt and are willing to "think outside of the box", you can really imbue your space with seriously unique style! From re-purposed furniture, vintage signs or barn house lighting to salvaged wood planked walls/ceiling beams and reclaimed kitchen/bathroom cabinets, there are many ways to add a little or a lot of salvaged style to your rooms.

Furniture and Wall Accessories

Bringing in salvaged or re-purposed furniture can be a nice subtle way to introduce some salvage style to your space. To keep your room from looking like an antique store, keep the salvaged pieces to a minimum and mix with newer pieces. Sometimes just one great salvaged piece is enough to give the room a punch of character. Salvaged chairs look great around a reclaimed wood table, wood crates and ladders can make great book shelves, reclaimed signs can make great statement art pieces. There are many different ways to bring in salvage style.






Salvaged Wood Walls, Beams and Cabinetry 


If you really want to give your space a true salvage style look, a great way to do so is to start with the bones of your room. Adding salvaged wood to the walls, ceiling or cabinetry in a room can give you a richly rustic, lived in look. Reclaimed wood is a great way to bring serious character into any room.
