Choosing the Right Faux Wood Beams
As you can see, we have many options to choose from. How do you decide what will work in your home? The texture, color, and sizing will need to match your home’s interior design.
The impact of different ceiling beam sizes
Whether your vision involves thick, rustic beams forming rafters or thinner pieces for simple designs across the ceiling, there are a variety of sizes to choose from. The thickness depends on the overall effect you want to achieve. Different thicknesses can even be combined for interesting effects.
Larger beams, for instance, will make the ceiling feel a little lower, making the space feel a bit cozier. On the other hand, if you would rather add some elegance to the ceiling without bringing it down, then thinner beams might work better for you.
You should also know that thicker beams will loom larger in a smaller space, so if you want to avoid a crowded feeling in bedrooms or other areas with low square footage, then it would be best to stick to a smaller beam. On the other hand, more open areas with high ceilings might be most benefited by larger sizes.
Choosing the right ceiling beam texture
Another key feature of our faux wood beams is a wide variety of textures. These can mean the difference between a modern, refined area and a more rustic, rough-hewn look. The effect you want in a space will require a specific texture.
Rustic and hand-hewn textures give the appearance of a frontier home, adding a bit of cozy roughness to the home that harkens back to olden times. Our majestic texture, on the other hand, adds a more high-class feel.
Regardless of the texture you choose, you will always add a highly realistic accent that resembles real wood.
Finding the best ceiling beam color
We have deep rich browns, light subtle beiges, and everything in between. The tone you choose will need to coordinate with your home’s color scheme in order to create the right effect.
Overall, dark against light (and light against dark) will stand out a great deal. Darker colors work well with whitewashed ceilings to create a stark contrast that is pleasing to the eye. A mid-range color will create a homey feeling, while lighter woods can work with a bright color scheme.
Faux wood beams for entryways
The first thing people see in your home are the entryways, and so the way you integrate faux wooden beams into that space will set the tone for the rest of your home. Tall, vaulted ceilings in these spots can be brought down a little closer to earth with a trussed approach, making the home feel more welcoming to visitors as they walk in the door.
Conversely, a domed effect with intersecting beams can create a “wow” factor as you welcome visitors, letting them know that your home values class and grandeur.
Faux wood beams for kitchens
The kitchen is a place where your family frequently gathers, so it’s important for it to have a comfortable feeling to it. Simple straight beams across the ceiling can create a western “adobe” feeling, while a truss system can bring a vaulted kitchen ceiling a little closer to earth. Patterned effects with lighter colored beams can create a chicer atmosphere for a modern kitchen.
Faux wood beams for living rooms
The living room is the spot where you relax after a long day and entertain guests, so it needs to have an attractive aesthetic. Trusses create an old-fashioned rafters feel while using beams to form patterns can help complement ceiling fans and light fixtures. In living rooms with higher ceilings, ribbing the surface with decorative beams can create a vaulted appearance.
Using wood beams in other areas
Bedrooms, home offices, bathrooms, and so on can all benefit from ceiling beams. The best way to include faux wood in these areas is to determine first what type of atmosphere you want to create. Rich browns with rustic textures are excellent for a cozy cottage aesthetic, while smooth textures may lend themselves toward more modern vibes.
Faux wood logs can make a master bedroom feel like a cabin getaway, while slim beams arranged in patterns around a ceiling fan can transform an office from a drab workplace into a dynamic zone of productivity.
