The modern house is a marvel of architectural advancement, able to sustain life, technology, age, and an incredible amount of weight. Ceilings and walls decorated with accessories like chandeliers and ceiling fans or with functional speakers or sprinkler heads look much more clean when wires can be hidden within hollow faux beams. As any professional contractor knows, wires, cables, even unsightly structural beams can be difficult to hide. Using beams can add a decorative flair while providing a useful function. Smart homes with automated security and in-home sound and entertainment often have extensive equipment and wiring that needs to be hidden. U-shaped faux beams can hide internal wires, and fixtures can be installed directly onto the surface of the beam. Another advantage of the faux beam is that it is excellent for indoor or outdoor applications because it is resistant to many of the factors that wear down natural wood products, such as weather, moisture, heat, insects and rot which can cause warping and breakage. If you are considering implementing faux beams into the building of a house, you should only trust the experts with the finest materials, such as Volterra Architectural Products.
