Welcome and thank you for stopping by to view our gallery of gorgeous living rooms featuring exposed ceiling beams! The main function of exposed ceiling beams is that they take the traditional practice of concealing the architecture and do just the opposite. Instead of hiding the construction elements of the home, they reveal the “bones” of a home and show them off in a unique, classy fashion.
Whether you are having a home built, remodeling, or just making a few additions and changes, exposed wood beams on the ceiling is a sure way to create a custom, unique look in your home. Older buildings frequently have actual solid beams, while new homes have a tendency of creating the facade by cleverly piecing together the beams.
What is great about this design idea, is if it is done right, it can be done in almost any room in your home… just being careful not to over use this look. Choosing one main room in the home to show off this look is ideal.
This gallery showcases such a large variety of different ways the exposed beam look can be done in your home. Here you will see it done simply by just adding a few across the ceiling to break up the plain white look of the ceiling and some done elaborately, making a huge statement. No matter what your style is, adding this step to your list of interior design plans will completely transform a room. Keep in mind, living rooms and kitchens are the two most popular locations within a home for an exposed beam addition.
These rooms are sure to inspire you with ideas and ways to create the room with exposed beams that is perfect for you and your home.
