Ceiling Beams

I’ve always loved the look of beams on a ceiling, and one day would love to live in a home where we had this extra detail.  I’ve often watched home improvement shows where they’ve added beams to a high ceiling, and it instantly makes the room seem special.  Whether they are a part of the structure, actually helping to hold up the building, or if they are just there for aesthetics, there are core reasons I absolutely love exposed beams on the ceiling…

1. Exposed beams give a room a Spanish flair – if you are going for a “Mediterranean” look in your home, exposed beams are a surefire way to do that!

2. Ceiling beams make a house feel rustic – like a hunting lodge or remote cabin in the mountains – and create a cozy space in a room with vastly high ceilings

3. Beams instantly create architectural interest in a room, enhance existing architectural details, and can add character to an otherwise ordinary space

  1. Ugh, love these. My apartment is probably from the mid- 1990's, we definitely don't have these awesome details. One day…
