Affordable Ceiling Beam Ideas From Volterra

Posted By Paul Birkhead Sep 30, 2020

Faux ceiling beams give homeowners a way to add beauty and interest to their home’s architectural style. Faux wood beams are generally available at less than half the cost of real wood beams. In addition, they are much lighter, bypassing the need for large installation teams and specialized equipment. Volterra offers some gorgeous ceiling beam ideas to enhance almost any home.

Amazing Realism

Although fake wood beams are made of high-density foam or HDF, a polyurethane material, they look like the real thing, even on close inspection. Homeowners can match existing ceiling styles, or choose finishes to achieve any natural wood effect they desire. The wood finishes available include:

  • Primed
  • Mahogany
  • Oak
  • Walnut

Perhaps the feature that most adds realism to the faux beams is the texturing. Beams are cast in molds taken from natural wood beams. They can be customized with the following real wood textures:

  • Douglas fir
  • Tuscany
  • Sand blast
  • Rough sawn

The grain, knotholes, and other natural imperfections of real wood give the faux beams an amazing realism.

Flexible Design

HDF beams come in standard lengths of 16’ and 20’ and a thickness of 1”. However, they can be customized to almost any size necessary. Standard styles include the following:

  • U-shaped
  • Corbel-cut end
  • Arched, for a hammered truss
  • Mantel
  • Full box beam with removable plank
