NJW, your Columbus, Ohio general contractors, are always on the lookout for some creative uses for building materials…and one way we stay informed is through magazines and online resources, etc.

One of those online resources is called Remodeling. They have a lot of innovative ideas for renovations and remodeling.

In this article, they reference the Remodeling Design Awards and showcase some of the best design details. Some of those included:

Salvaged Wood Stair Screens: They harvested and milled the lumber from a dying silver maple tree on the property to create slats for an entry screen by the staircase

Rope Noise Buffer: Incorporating manila rope details throughout the house in walls and ceilings, this complimented the home’s 1960s style and served as a noise buffer

Black Gas-Pipe Light Fixtures: This group designed light fixtures from black gas pipe. Delicate, yet industrial-looking, the black, worn texture of the pipe complements the rustic look of the design

Salvaged Window & Window Sashes: In an effort to create a studio that provides modern amenities but also incorporates aged materials, one designer used a salvaged Palladian window from a church and window sashes from the high school she had attended.
