Considerations For Beam Ideas & Design

As you dream up ways to incorporate faux wood beams in your home exterior decor, keep the following design factors in mind.


Where you choose to place the beams will depend greatly on the size of the exterior of your home. Too many beams may result in an over-crowded, cluttered look. Not enough beams will make it look unfinished.

Generally, the space between the beam should be wider on a smaller area. Larger exterior spaces will require more beams spaced closer together.


There are various faux wood beam ideas for your home’s exterior based on the area size and roof height.

High roofing space generally calls for more intricate designs to fill the space without making you feel restricted. For lower height levels, thin beams can be the perfect addition.

Size & Shape

To make the most out of beams for the exterior of your home, focus on shapes and sizes. Thicker beams have a better place in larger spaces, while thinner beams do more justice in smaller areas.


When getting design ideas for the exterior of your home, the possibilities are endless. Find a wood finish such as Hand Hewn or Rough Sawn that accentuates the exterior finishes of your home, landscaping and design.
