The difference between Reclaimed and Recycled Wood
Although on the surface they sound similar, there is a crucial difference – and that’s to do with reprocessing.
Reclaimed wood is wood which is simply reused ie the flooring from an old dockyard re-laid in a modern Docklands apartment or a roof beam re-purposed into a mantelpiece. In other words, it doesn’t differ much from its original state.
Recycled wood is timber which has been fashioned into a different item like old crates made into a side table and painted or a fence which has been fashioned into a cutlery holder etc.
