Creative Uses for Ceiling Beams

Nowadays, ceiling beams can do more than just hold up a roof. Their versatility as a design element is something few people recognize and even fewer take advantage of.

Now that the summer projects are over, it’s time to turn the attention inwards and what better way than spicing things up with a ceiling beam. Here are a few ideas to inspire.

Accent Piece

Like a painting or piece of art, a ceiling beam provides a great way to add that something extra to a room. Adding this architectural feature in a room with higher ceilings brings added warmth into the space.

Balance Point

A ceiling beam is the perfect solution to making a large, open room feel warmer and balanced. By adding a beam directly in the vault creates a visual separation in this otherwise open floorplan.
