Whitewash or Reclaimed wood finish? Our tips to help you choose.

Posted by Cassie Venable on

Having trouble deciding which color is right for your project? I get it. When it comes to styling your home, the love is in the details. I know how much time I can spend staring at paint chips, fabric swatches, floor samples… the struggle is real!  It’s also one of the things that makes you so great at personalizing your space!

Deep breaths, today I’m here to help you have a win. Let’s scratch one thing off your list by helping you decide which shade of barnwood planks is perfect for your space.

How to know if whitewash or reclaimed is right for your space?

Look around

    • Big picture: step back and look at the space as a whole. Do you need an element that brightens the space like our whitewash finish or anchors the space like our reclaimed finish?
    • Focus in: If you already have accessories in the room, what would complement the current elements that you’re going to keep? You could stay within the same tone for consistency or you could make your walls be more of a focal point by picking the opposite- if everything is dark consider light, if everything is light, consider dark.
    • Anything missing? If you have a new design piece you just love that you are planning to pair with your new wood plank wall, what tone would go best?
