Hardwood Designs

The faux steel beams in your home are made of a number of different materials. Probably the most common faux steel beam material is some type of hardwood. Whether it be oak, maple, or another wood species entirely, faux metal beams constructed from hardwoods can look truly amazing on many homes. The main downside to using these types of faux steel beams is that they can be a bit more expensive than other faux steel beams made from different materials.

Urethane

If you’re looking for faux steel beams that are a bit less expensive, faux urethane faux steel beams may be the best option. Many people don’t realize it but there are actually many types of urethanes available on the market today. Polyurethane can vary from material to material and faux metal beams made from polyurethane can vary from faux steel beams made of hardwood.

Acrylic

Acrylic faux steel beams are also an option for faux metal beams in many homes. Acrylic faux beam materials have a nice solid feel to them and they hold up well over time, which is why most people choose these types of faux steel beams for their construction needs. They are a bit less expensive than faux steel beams made from hardwood but they can be more costly when compared to faux urethane faux metal beams.

What is the Best Material For Faux Steel Beams? 

That really depends on your budget and what you’re looking for in terms of end results. Each type of faux metal beam has its own unique advantages and disadvantages, which is why faux metal beams are so versatile. Whether you want faux steel beams made of hardwood, faux urethane, or acrylic to use on your home it’s important to remember they can all add a unique look and feel.

Faux steel beams are ideal for your construction plans. Whether you want to prepare a truss or rafters, you can use faux beams to add a distinct touch. Our experts at Volterra Architectural Products will be there to help you with whatever work plans you want to manage for your home.

What Types of Wood Trusses Can You Use in Your Home?

What Types of Wood Trusses Can You Use in Your Home?

The structural wood trusses in your home will support your roof’s frame. Your trusses are essential in shaping your roof while distributing its weight onto the exterior walls. It is easier to get trusses ready than if you used rafters, plus they cost less than rafters. But you might be curious if you can get the look of structural wood trusses with a decorative, non-functional option. Our experts at Volterra Architectural Products can help you explore some of the different faux wood truss styles that fit in with your home or corporate design style. Keep reading to learn more, and visit us online or in-store today!

King Post

The king post truss design is one of the oldest types still in use today. The king post features a single vertical post at its center, with rafters on either side to support your roof. They are commonly used for smaller structures like gazebos and porches, but you can also find them incorporated into larger homes or commercial buildings. Volterra’s king truss perfectly replicates this type of structural wood truss.

Queen Post

The queen post truss features two vertical posts on either side of the center. While they are typically used to support smaller structures like gazebos, porches, and arbors, you can also find them in larger homes or commercial buildings.

Clerestory

This type of truss is used to create a window or skylight in homes. The clerestory features rafters that span across the width of your roof, with support beams coming down from those rafters on both sides. These are commonly found along exterior walls and can be made taller for more headroom underneath them. Volterra’s Sawtooth truss resembles some clerestory trusses.

If you’re looking for a specific type of wood truss, visit our website to see 12 different truss options to choose from.  Our technical team at Volterra Architectural Products is also available to discuss custom trusses of most any style.

Why Choose Faux Wood Beams For Your Home?

Why Choose Faux Wood Beams For Your Home?

The challenge of finding quality materials for your architectural needs can be frustrating. But it doesn’t have to be when you look at how well fake beams can work.

Our experts at Volterra Architectural Products in Phoenix can show you how these beams can be incorporated into your space.

Easy to Customize

One great thing about faux beams is their ability to be customized. There are many different colors and styles of faux wood, so you should have no problems finding something that will fit into your space. The faux wood panels offered at Volterra come in various sizes as well, allowing for more flexibility when creating the right design scheme for your home.

Less Risk of Damage

When faux beams are installed, there is a low chance of damage. For example, faux beams can be placed over an existing beam that has been damaged or weakened by water and other elements. The faux wood products will not rot or warp like real wood does in the same conditions because they are made of high-density polyurethane foam to ensure their durability, even after several decades.

Handles Moisture Well

Faux beams are able to  handle moisture well. Moisture is a common issue when it comes to wood in the home or outside because water vapor can seep  into this material and causes damage over time. With faux beams, on the other hand, you won’t have any issues with warping or cracking due to exposure to humidity or extreme conditions. It’s easy to clean faux beams, too.

Consistent Color

When faux beams are installed, you can enjoy the original stained color throughout the life of the beam. Some faux woods have various colors and textures that give each beam its own unique look, but you will never see any discoloration of fading from direct sunlight exposure because faux wood is treated to prevent this. This faux wood is also resistant to pests that might damage your beams over time.

Faux beams are an excellent choice for any home. They provide the look of wood, but they’re easier to install and are more resistant to harsh conditions. You’ll love faux beams, and Volterra Architectural Products in Phoenix has them for you at affordable prices. Shop faux wood beams online or in-store today!

MODERN FARMHOUSE

If you think back to a few years ago, farmhouse-style interior design was all the rage. That style, however, has evolved into something that is a bit more modern. Modern farmhouse interior design is all about incorporating rustic elements in a fresh and airy way—think Joanna Gains! Both faux wood beams and natural wood box beams can help bring out the best elements in modern farmhouse design.

INDUSTRIAL

An urban look with an edge, industrial interior design is characterized by raw textures, exposed elements, and metal fixtures and finishes. It is a look that is popular in lofts and warehouses. The style emphasizes ample use of exposed steel with distressed wooden elements, frequently complemented by exposed brick walls. Volterra’s faux steel I beams can help you achieve an authentic industrial look. If steel isn’t the vibe you’re going for, decorative wood beams will look great too.

TRADITIONAL

Traditional interior design is one of the industry’s most well-known styles. Traditional interiors use ornately detailed tables and chairs made from dark wood, drawing inspiration from 18th & 19th Century England and France. Decorative wood ceiling beams are a perfect addition to these spaces. They help bring out the underpinning elements and important pieces that are incorporated into the overall design of a space.

SOUTHWESTERN

Southwestern interior design encompasses the look of the “Wild West”. While the style melds together elements from multiple cultures and periods of history, it’s translatable to modern homes today. Southwestern interiors gather their inspiration from the soft lines of adobe houses, Spanish textiles, ironwork, and nature. It features various textures and warm color palettes as well. Any of Volterra’s decorative ceiling beams — faux steel, faux wood, or real wood — can be easily incorporated into Southwestern interiors.

The most popular sizes of Volterra faux wood beams range from $200 to $750 per beam. The cost of our faux wood beams is determined by the type of beam ordered, plus freight.

Unlike natural wood beams, faux wood beams will not warp, crack, fade, or rot. Artificial wood beams are virtually maintenance-free!

Are Faux Beams Easy to Install?

Installing faux beams is easy. Because our decorative beams are manufactured from a durable yet lightweight polyurethane material, the beams are extremely easy to handle and can be up on a ceiling in just a matter of hours.

Can Faux Wood Beams Be Used to Cover Existing Drywall Beams?

Yes, of course. Faux wood beams are a great way to cover structural glulam or drywall beams, unattractive wood beams, pipes, cords, or fixtures.

Adding Faux Wood Beams To Your Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of a home. With the amount of time you spend in the kitchen preparing and cooking meals, enjoying morning cups of coffee, and hosting friends and family, you have every reason to want it to be one of the most aesthetically-pleasing rooms in your home. From new countertops and cabinets to creating an open kitchen layout, there are many renovation projects that can be done to make your kitchen look and feel even more comfortable and homey than it already is.

However, there are also some simple things that can be done that can drastically enhance your kitchen space and don’t require any remodeling and renovation, like faux wood beams. Adding faux wooden beams to any space in your home is a creative way to give it a unique and rustic — yet modern — look. Having a bland white ceiling can detract from an otherwise attractive aesthetic. Implementing kitchen ceiling beams can do wonders for your space, all without the costs of actual wood.

Reasons To Choose Faux Wood Beams for Kitchen

Adding real wood beams to your kitchen, while they would be a beautiful addition to the space, is a costly and laborious process. Faux wood beams offer numerous benefits, but perhaps the biggest benefit is that they are shaped and stained to replicate the appearance of natural wood. These beams are also not as heavy as real wood ceiling beams, making them an easy-to-install decorative element for your kitchen.

Volterra Architectural Products manufactures high-quality faux wood beams that enhance the look and feel of any interior or exterior space, especially the kitchen! Available in different styles, Volterra’s faux wood beams can transform a bland kitchen ceiling into a detailed work of art, lending a warm and welcoming feel to your heart of the home.

Design Ideas for Using Faux Wood Beams

While living areas are typically the most popular room to add faux wooden beams to, both small and large kitchens can benefit from the timeless, open-beam style that they bring to the space. Below, our design experts share some design ideas for using faux wooden beams in your kitchen.

Create Visual Contrast

Many of the contemporary-modern kitchens in today’s homes put focus on sleek surfaces. Stone countertops, stainless steel appliances, and simple cabinets are becoming more popular than the richly-stained finishes that were trending in previous years. Adding faux wood ceiling beams can add visual contrast to your kitchen. In kitchens with white or light-colored ceilings and color schemes especially, the warmth and texture faux wood beams bring a beautifully-balanced focal point to the space.

Add to the Entrance

As mentioned, kitchens are the hub of all activities — and all delicious food, of course. While the attention is often directed to what’s inside the space, the entrance of the kitchen is something that should not be overlooked. Faux wood beams provide an old-world feel to a modern kitchen, framing the entrance beautifully. Large beams with faux wood trusses in the corners will add appealing architectural detail to the entrance.

Get Creative

Adding faux wood beams to your kitchen will certainly bring more attention to the space. Depending on your kitchen and your personal style and preferences, faux wooden beams can be used in multiple ways. For example, adding a faux wood ceiling running in the same direction as a kitchen island or bar is a great way to highlight that unique feature. If your kitchen has a high ceiling, faux wood beams can be mounted a few feet below ceiling height to add a cozier feel to the space without having to sacrifice architectural interest or natural light. Lastly, any unusual curves, angles, or other lines in your kitchen space can be highlighted with strategically-placed beams, turning an awkward space into an unexpectedly beautiful one.

 

Of course, you are the one who will be using your kitchen the most, so it’s important to think about the different ways adding faux wood beams can enhance its look and feel.
