For some time now wooden beams have become a ‘must’ in decor and something very desirable for lovers of interior design. Years ago, beams were the very fabric of ancient and stately homes, they were then covered over and hidden as people went for the more economical and easier to make dropped ceilings which hid these architectural treasures.

Nevertheless, for quite some time now, when we renovate a house we look for hidden beams and, if found, we bring them to the forefront as they deserve. Furthermore, if these beams are wooden, much better as this fine material has become indispensable in interior design.

Wooden beams, in addition to their architectural function as support, have a definite decorative character and they lend a space a beauty and bearing which few other elements can give to our home. If we aren’t lucky enough to have a house with wooden beams, we can put them in afterwards, although, in this case, it is better if the house is spacious with high ceilings.
A living room, a kitchen, a bedroom… Wooden beams fit perfectly anywhere. Beams can play a large part in all of these and, thanks to the wood, lend that extra touch of warmth and comfort.

A little trick in interior design is to combine the design solutions we have chosen for our home with the tone of the ceiling beams. If the wood is light, it is best to go for soft, warm monochromatic shades with a light dash of colour. Whites, ochres, light browns with a hint of green provided by plants or natural flowers go perfectly in wooden houses.

There are simpler beams and those which are real works of art. We love a rustic character with a certain old-fashioned and decadent air. For this, raw brick or stone walls are ideal and combine perfectly with beams. The result is a superb and idyllic space.

But wooden beams are not only suitable for old houses, country houses or farmhouses. They also adapt perfectly to more modern, urban and cosmopolitan houses. In fact, beams can often provide an industrial air or the look of a very original New York loft.

 

Another place which beams suit perfectly is the bedroom. You will love the comfortable and relaxing air that these architectural elements provide the bedroom you are looking to decorate. Beams are very versatile and, depending on their texture, shape and the wood from which they are made, can make a room seem more rustic or give a more neutral Nordic style with which we have all fallen in love with.

Wood is so special that it suits everywhere and anywhere. Sometimes large beams are not necessary, but just one to frame and convert a space into a unique and enchanting retreat. That is the magic of wood!
