Beams

There's a reason antique timber beams stick around as other architectural trends rise and fall.

Reclaimed wood beams pull your eye up, making the most of the upper half of your space. They balance the visual weight of a room with heft and structure — adding architectural interest that's reminiscent of traditional post-and-beam construction. Salvaged timber beams imbue a space with style and historicity by giving genuine old-growth wood a second life in contemporary surroundings.

Not just for rustic spaces. Though salvaged wood beams look charming in rustic or mountain-lodge-styled spaces, they're finding their way into many contemporary and minimalist interiors, as well. Contemporary designers tend to favor clean lines that complement the geometric architecture of each space. Reclaimed timber beams, when refined and finished, can add the perfect visual framework to complete an interior with minimalist style.

Can be decorative. Reclaimed barn wood beams offer remarkable strength as well as beauty. Most beams are strong enough to become a load-bearing part of a room's structure, if you're building from scratch. There are few more genuine ways to incorporate reclaimed beams into your space than to make them part of your building's construction.

You can also add reclaimed timbers to an existing room to:

  • Create the illusion of traditional post construction
  • Draw attention to tall, architectural ceilings
  • Add warmth and texture to a light, airy interior

Choose from smoothly refined or rustic, hand-hewn styles. At Reclaimed DesignWorks, we source the finest salvaged timber beams. Some are hand-hewn, with axel ax marks from an original builder's plane etched on the surface. Others are roughly sawn by sawmill — creating a smoother surface that wears the beauty marks of an earlier life. Still, others are re-sawn and polished for a smooth, finished surface.

When you come to us for reclaimed beams, you have options:

  • Kiln-dried or fumigated wood
  • Power-washed or as-is
  • Lightly sanded to smooth edges or more rustic
  • Surfaces de-nailed or with nails and other metal artifacts remaining
  • Old-growth timber or other quality cuts

You won't find higher-quality reclaimed timber beams from other suppliers. We're passionate about sourcing the best and providing you with the beams you need to suit your project — no matter how large or small.

Feel free to contact us for more information or find a showroom near you to stop by and talk to one of our consultants in person. Even if you're miles from a showroom, we can work with you to find the perfect match and get the salvaged beams you need to your location.
