Introduce A Piece Of History In To Your Home With Reclaimed Oak Beams

Reclaimed Oak Beams

Reclaimed oak beams add character and charm to any period property with its distinctive aged appearance. They feature knots, twists and evidence of their previous lives, so they really tell a story in their own right.

Reclaimed oak beams tend to be salvaged from houses, barns, chateaus and castles so are very good for the environment. They are also very hard and stable so great to work with.

What can I use Reclaimed Oak For?

Usually used for decorative and cosmetic applications, reclaimed oak beams can be finished to match pre-existing timbers. They also make wonderful features such as fireplaces, mantels in lounges or sitting rooms, shelves or log burner lintels.

Just take a look at some the wonderful finished projects our customers have sent us.

In the image above you can see how one customer has used reclaimed oak beams to complete the roof in their outbuilding.

Reclamation Oak Beams - fireplaces

Another customer has used their reclaimed oak beam as a mantel above his fireplace.

This reclaimed oak beam originated from a cart lodge in West Sussex. The fireplace looks fantastic installed above his new slate fire insert.

Here’s what he had to say about it:

“Purchased this beautiful beam from you yesterday lunchtime, it’s got such character and is just perfect. Once again many thanks your team were so helpful.”

If you have a similar fireplace why not add a wonderful reclaimed oak beam above yours. Alternatively we have some wonderful reclaimed fireplaces as well as surrounds, firebacks and accessories that would also suit just as well. Check out what we have available here.
