Faux beams, are they for you?

Should you install faux beams? You see them all the time in photos in magazines, they look great, add some architectural detail and drama and you think you want to try it. They can be very dramatic and stunning, but should you do it?

Ask yourself a couple questions: Does my home already have architectural detail? Will it match with my home’s style? Are my ceilings high enough to support them? These are just a few things to consider.

Below are photos of beams we installed in a client’s home. The home itself (a townhouse) was small but had vaulted ceilings and no moldings. The beams added much-needed interest to the ceiling.



Can’t wait to see the furnishings installed in this room to complete the look.

I consult, design, and remodel spaces that reflect the homeowner’s lifestyle and budget by getting the cost question out of the way and really listening to what my client wants and how much they have set aside for their project.
