How Do Businesses Use Faux Wood Beams?
Faux wood beams can be seen in a variety of commercial locations, like hotels and resorts, restaurants, malls, retail areas, and more. This material has qualities that make it the practical choice in commercial spaces, not just because faux beams are affordable, but there are endless design possibilities.
Faux wood beams come available in a variety of finishes and textures to compliment any style. Boxed faux wood ceiling beams offer both aesthetic and functional purposes. These beams are hollowed out so that users have the option to hide electrical wiring, and install track lighting, surround sound or sprinkler systems within the beam’s surface.
Add value and variety to your commercial space with our faux wood beams. To see the different finishes and styles, try ordering our samples.
How Are Commercial Faux Wood Beams Manufactured?
Faux wood beams are made from high-density polyurethane, which allows it to be both lightweight, durable, and easily moldable. The material is injected into a mold and compressed, making it very solid.
The result is a highly realistic simulation of wood without the added weight or expense. That makes it easier (read “less expensive”) to install, ultimately allowing you to add some interest and class to your establishment without high upfront costs.
Why Choose Faux Wood Beams for Your Commercial Space?
Here are a few of the many benefits to using faux wood beams in a commercial space:
- Realistic alternative to real wood—Faux wood beams are formed from real wood and given finishing touches to make them look incredibly authentic.
- Look of real wood for less money—Faux wood beams are affordable, allowing the customer to spend their money in other areas of their business.
- Extremely lightweight and easy to install—Many customers make installation a do-it-yourself project.
- Cuts material and build costs significantly—Installing faux wood beams doesn’t involve the tricky issue of load-bearing walls; bypassing this step saves time and money.
- Low maintenance and durable—High-density polyurethane products stand up well to outdoor elements without regular maintenance, and unlike real wood, faux wood beams don’t attract wood-boring insects that create issues like rotting and warping of the surface. Fire-rated beams are also available.
These advantages make faux wood beams the natural choice for finishing a commercial space.
Whether you want a simple arrangement of beams or are interested in an elaborate beam and truss system, we can help you decide on the ideal accent for your commercial property.

Considerations For Commercial Faux Beam Ideas & Design
As you look for ways to incorporate faux wood beams into your place of business, the following design principles will help.
The first principle is a matter of where you want it. Whether you want a ceiling beam effect or to add some interest to the wall will determine what style of beams you’ll choose.
Spacing is an important consideration with placement since you don’t want to clutter the space. Too many beams will look a bit crowded. On the other hand, you’ll want enough to fill out the area as well, since too few will look kind of sparse.
Over smaller areas, a few widely spaced beams work best, whereas numerous closely spaced beams may look more appealing on larger surfaces.
The way the space is designed will affect the way you configure your faux wood elements.
For example, a more spacious area with a high ceiling will give you more room for creative designs, whereas a smaller space will have less room for creativity. More elaborate designs in that smaller space will only make it feel crowded.
Shape & Size
Large halls and gathering areas are better served with thicker beams, whereas thinner ones tend to be friendlier to smaller spaces.
Other elements may also be useful to add a bit of flair to your commercial space, such as corbels, viga tails, mantels, panels, and planks. These can all be used to enhance your space tastefully.
Finally, color is a key element of tying a space together.
When choosing commercial faux wood beams, you’ll want to select a finish that works best with your existing color scheme. You’ll also have the option of painting or staining them yourself to bring everything together.
