Recycled Barnwood Makes Elegant Tile
We are a society of trends for the most part but one of the biggest trends in decorating right now is the old Farmhouse feel. While our house is an old farmhouse it needs a little more character. We are living here until we can build and in the meantime, I’ve been brainstorming all the things I need in my house. At the top of the list is a sliding barn door, hardwood floors, tile in the bathroom, and carpet in the bedrooms. While I don’t have a set-in stone plan just yet, I can tell you that my 2018 goal is to save enough to make my dreams a reality. Farmhouse decorating is all the rage and with brands like E&S Tile you can have the farmhouse feel without living in a drafty old Farmhouse.
One of the things that I want to include is a breakfast bar that is made into a focal point with the kitchen back-splash to match. While browsing the E&S Tile website I found the look that would be perfect for the Farmhouse Feel. The Barnwood Series, in the Timberline pattern is a 4” x 18” plank that can be configured in endless possibilities. While I’m leaning toward the vertical pattern though because I love the “barn” look my absolute favorite barn (seen below) has vertical boards. I’ve spent many an hour in that old barn and while I would love to have part of it in my new house, I can’t stand to tear it down because it was my Nana’s and Papa’s.
I want the house to be an open floor-plan and be able to entertain in the kitchen/living room with the focus being on the bar area that divides the two. But in the bathroom, we will continue with the Timberline pattern but will make one wall a focus wall much like you see here. Then we will tile the floor and implement a few of my favorites from a few different ideas I’ve been saving over the last few years. I can’t wait to see the finished result as right now it is just in the planning stages.

But instead of the commode being “boxed” in, it will be more open. Then, on the floor we will do a tile of sorts but what is still up for debate. E & S Tile does an impressive job reclaiming old barn boards and making them into sleek tiles giving you the ability to update your home, office or anywhere in between while helping the environment at the same time.
