Many people ask me what kinds of things I like to do to really change a room and give it character. One of the things I like to suggest are “beams”.
Whether you add a real, solid wood beam or a fabricated look-a-like beam, this touch of wood on any ceiling can really add a lot of charm to any room. It can take a little work finding a contractor, carpenter and good lumber yard to accomplish the task, but this is where a good designer can step in and pull it off for you. PLUS you are adding value to your home! Don’t be afraid to go after the ceiling. It can make all the difference in the world.
