When it comes to the best high impact changes you can make in your home’s décor without spending more than your planned budget, then updating ceiling elements is a great choice. Although simple changes to the ceiling have a powerful impact, ceiling improvements are often ignored. After rolling out a fresh coat of paint, homeowners turn their attention away from the ceiling and focus on other parts of the home. However, the installation of faux wood ceiling beams can introduce depth, impact, and warmth – all at an affordable price.
There are a few great choices when it comes to the installation of ceiling beams:
No matter which material you use, ceiling beams add a new dimension to your room. They can create a longer, broader feel to small rooms, a lofty atmosphere, or a draw attention to a beautifully designed vaulted ceiling. However, there are many advantages to choosing faux wood beams. They look like real wood, cost a fraction of the price to install, and don’t pose the same installation concerns and complications of real wood beams. Along with that easy installation, the faux ceiling beams can be adjusted, rearranged, taken down, and replaced without too much muss or fuss.
One advantage of using faux beams is that they can be used outdoors just as well as inside a home. While real wood might suffer when exposed to heat, rain, snow, sunlight, and other natural elements, the durable high-density polyurethane of faux ceiling beams are a better choice for exterior applications. Used outdoors, the beams will withstand those same elements, retaining their lasting beauty without the maintenance of real wood beams.
Too often homeowners insist on real wood because they feel that real wood seems more natural. Whether these homeowners are purists or are concerned about the environment, the use of real wood can sometimes work against their priorities. For instance, ceiling beams made of real wood require logging, which can be harmful to the environment. Faux beams, on the other hand, help to preserve natural trees and are made from non-toxic materials. In addition, strategically placed faux wood ceiling beams can hide duct work, fixtures and pipes, which can make a home more energy efficient helping to direct air flow. For your next home improvement project, you may want to start at the top. Consider how the installation of faux ceiling beams can positively impact your home décor.
