Bark House
What am I paying for in a Bark House sample?

Bark House samples are not discards, cut-offs, or scrap.  They are hand-crafted just like full-sized products.  The RAW™ (Reclaimed Appalachian Wood Waste) material we procure is not a commodity.  We have a finite annual intake. Sample prices have to account for all these variables.

When you feel the raw material of these products, we know that you are going to love the texture.  No other wall covering compares!  We encourage you to learn about the company’s work to restore forests and support the people working and living in them.

How does a finish affect the bark material?

Bark is a porous material like wood.  Like the differing patterns of wood grain, the porosity of bark occurs in differencing degrees and in differing patterns.  When finishes are applied to the material, the inherent color underneath will be amplified, and the degree of saturation in each area across the face of the bark will vary.  Therefore, the finish on your Bark House sample (a unique piece) is not guaranteed to match 100% to the finish on your larger bark wall covering (of which no two are exactly alike).  Our finished samples and wall coverings are sprayed consistently over the face of the material.  If your project requires exact matches, then we will educate your finish expert about the nature of the material they are working with.  Your professional finisher should work with you onsite for a perfect match.  If your project has an allowance for slight variations then, our finishers are highly experienced and glad to be of service.

What is in a Sample Kit?

Our Sample Kits are fully customizable:  you choose the product and finish that will allow you to make a decision for your project!  You may order in any quantity that you need.  Of course, we are always available to help you with any questions that you might have.

If you would like more than one of any sample, please enter that in the gray Quantity field before clicking Add to Cart.  The amount of your order will appear at the top of the page as well as at the bottom where there is a running list of what you’ve ordered, including the Shipping costs.

International Customers will need to contact us to make any sample purchases.
