Beamed Ceilings to Shiver Your Timbers

By Sharon Johnson


Considered a room's "fifth wall," the ceiling offers a broad expanse just begging to be ornamented. You can paint the ceiling or, if you're feeling daring, wallpaper it. Additionally, there is much to be said for celebrating the very structural elements of the ceiling itself, most notably in the form of the beams that support it. Whether made of wood or steel, structural or merely ornamental, encased in plaster or left au naturel, beams have an uncanny way of transforming a room and becoming a focal point in their own right.

Pattern Repeat

This classic coffered ceiling brings an additional note of elegance to this sumptuous kitchen. Painting both ceiling and beams a warm white is in keeping with the cool, restful vibe of the kitchen, and makes the ceiling seem almost like an extension of the cabinets.
