Shabby Chic Bedroom

One of the most popular styles of home decor that pairs perfectly with The Rift White Oak Natural Wood Beams is called shabby chic. This style focuses on highlighting the beauty of light natural colors and repurposing antique or vintage items for modern, everyday use. Pastel colors are commonly found in this style of home decor, which means that these beams will elevate the style even further because of the beautiful color gradients found in the beam finish. What’s even better about matching this style of beam to your shabby chic bedroom is that you can also coordinate your wood tones throughout other room features, such as your bedframe, a writing desk, or even a dresser. 

Bordering The Dining Room

When you’re looking for ways to give your dining room a facelift, a great way to add style and tie the room together is to match your dining furniture to the room itself. This means that the Rift White Oak Natural Wood Beams are a great choice for your dining room because lighter woods are often easier to clean and make for great dining room tables. With wood features in your dining room that match or coordinate from the furniture to the walls or ceiling, the bright, natural tones in these beams will create a beautifully bright and cohesive space that the whole family will enjoy for years to come! 

Dividing Up a Large Room

You Have a Unique Ceiling Structure Where Custom Sizes Are Needed

You Want Each Faux Wood Beam to Be Different

Custom beams from Volterra are hand-fabricated, meaning that each one is unique and made-to-order. This is opposed to ready-made beams, which are often mass-produced and lack character. If you want each beam in your home to have its own story and more authentically replicate real wood beams, then custom beams are the way to go.

You Want the Ability to Choose Your Own Finish

One of the most difficult decisions with our custom wood beams is choosing the stain, only because there are so many to choose from! Most beams will have stain choices like dark walnut, oak, driftwood, mahogany, and more. You can even order them primed so that you can add a specific stain or finish yourself.

You’re Okay With Longer Wait Times

Custom beams have a longer lead time than ready-made beams because each one is made-to-order. However, we think the wait is worth it when you end up with a one-of-a-kind product that is the perfect size and finish for your home.

So, there you have it! If any of these four things resonate with you, then custom faux wood beams from Volterra are definitely the right choice for you. Browse our collection today and get started on creating your dream space!

Things to Know About Quick Ship Faux Wood Beams

Looking for a fast and easy way to add some rustic charm to your home decor? More and more homeowners and designers are using faux wood beams from Volterra Architectural Products to transform their interior spaces.

Volterra’s collection of Quick Ship faux ceiling beams is one of the most popular, as they benefit buyers in terms of cost, convenience, and ease of installation and maintenance. In this article, we’ll share some important things to know about our Quick Ship faux wood beams.

traditional style faux wood beams

Available in Traditional Wood Styles

Similar to the other collections of faux wood beams that Volterra offers, our Quick Ship beams are available in a variety of traditional wood styles, including Rustic, Rough Sawn, Doug Fir, and so much more. Additionally, each style of our Quick Ship beams can be further tailored to your space with different sizes and stains to choose from.

faux wood beam

Poured Monolithically

All of our Quick Ship beams are poured monolithically, which means that they’re created as a single piece. This offers a number of advantages in terms of stability and longevity, as there are no weak points or joints that can break down over time. One thing to keep in mind is, that since these faux wood beams are monolithically manufactured, each beam you order will be identical in appearance. If you want each beam to be different in appearance like natural wood beams, our custom faux wood beams would be a better choice, as each beam is hand-fabricated and unique in its own way. That said, once the quick ship faux wood beams are installed, it is difficult to tell whether each beam is different from the next.

faux wood beams

Shipping Time is 3-4 Weeks

Most faux wood beams tend to have a longer wait when it comes to shipping — quality faux ceiling beams with the ever-so-popular ”two-day shipping” simply don’t exist. Products like these tend to have longer shipping times for various reasons, but the manufacturing process and demand for the product are the most common. Our Quick Ship beams are here to combat the longer shipping times that are traditionally associated with real and faux wood beams. With any Volterra Quick Ship Beam, you can expect shipping time to be approximately three-to-four weeks. For reference, our custom faux wood beams typically have a seven-to-eight week shipping time. Therefore, Quick Ship faux wood beams are the best choice for those who want simple yet aesthetically-effective ceiling beams without the long wait.

faux wood beams

A Budget Friendly Option

While our Quick Ship beams are by no means the cheapest faux wood beams on the market, they are a budget-friendly option for those who want the Volterra quality without the premium price tag. Our Quick Ship beams start as low as $175 but increase in price when specific styles, increased styles, and stains are incorporated into the order. Regardless of which faux wood beam option you choose, all of our products are competitively priced and made of high-quality materials, so you can be confident that you’re receiving a great product no matter which route you go.

If you’re looking for an easy, convenient, and budget-friendly faux wood beam option, our Quick Ship beams are the perfect choice. With a variety of styles and stain options to choose from, you’re sure to find the right beam for your space. Shipping is fast and easy, so you can enjoy your new beams in no time.

Frequently Asked Questions About Faux Wood Vigas

Frequently Asked Questions About Faux Wood Vigas

Vigas have become a popular exterior architectural detail, especially in adobe and Southwestern-style buildings.

Can Faux Vigas Be Used Outside?

Although Volterra faux wood vigas are manufactured with urethane foam and are lightweight, they are incredibly durable and are designed for exterior use. They can withstand the elements and aren’t susceptible to splitting, rotting, or deterioration after a few years like real wood. What’s more, faux wood vigas are also resistant to termites and other insects, moisture, and ultraviolet rays.

How Much Do Vigas Cost?

The cost of Volterra vigas is determined by a variety of factors, including the type, size, finish, and whether they are solid or hollow. The cost of each viga is determined by your specific demands and installation criteria. An 8″ x 12″ hollow Flat End Viga without a flange and unpainted finish costs around $40 per viga. A 12” x 24” solid Tapered End Viga with a back plate and a dark walnut finish will cost just under $140.

How Do You Install Faux Vigas?

Volterra faux wood vigas are lightweight and easy to install for DIY homeowners who want to add the appearance of wood vigas without all the hassle. Our decorative vigas can fit onto existing rods or be installed with Volterra’s Viga Mounting Plate. Whichever option you choose, you’ll need to drill a hole in the center of each viga so that it will fit on the rod properly. It is recommended that adhesive is used to ensure a secure fit.

Volterra wood vigas are a great way to add new life and Southwestern-style to any home or building without spending thousands on expensive renovations.

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.

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.

Find Faux Wood Beams For Your Kitchen

You cannot go wrong with adding wooden beams to your kitchen. Doing so will add an old-world, yet modern touch to the space, making the time you spend there more enjoyable. If you are interested in adding wood beams to your kitchen, be sure to check out Volterra’s selection of faux wood beams. Because beams are lightweight so they can be easily installed on your own.
