35 Cozy Bedrooms With Exposed Wooden Beams
A feature of the homes from nearly a century ago, the ceiling beams were a structural requirement that found little space as construction techniques evolved. But love for the vintage and the growing popularity of rustic and farmhouse decor has once again seen the ceiling beam come back into fashion! A bedroom with ceiling beams is one that feels vastly different from the more contemporary and minimal bedrooms that feel ‘disconnected’ at times. From the innovative to the classic, ceiling beams in bedrooms make an impact every single time.
A bedroom with ceiling beams is not limited to rustic and farmhouse styles alone. They work equally well in the modern bedroom and play an even bigger role visually. While the rustic bedroom with ceiling beams ensures that the beams blend into the overall visual of the backdrop, in the modern bedroom they stand out visually with ease. They add textural and material contrast in a world dominated by polished finishes and lots of man-made beauty. The same goes to a minimalist bedroom – yes, in such bedrooms you may also see some exposed wooden beams! A bit of natural warmth brought in the by the ceiling beams coupled with creativity is the perfect way to give something different to the boring, old bedroom!

Wooden beams on your ceiling can be styled differently: they can be light-stained to merge with the decor and colors of the room or they can stand out if you go for rich bold or dark stain. The latter option can make your ceiling a centerpiece in the room and it will stand out a lot. If you don’t have those real beams, you can always make some faux ones that will look no worse, and there are many DIYs on the web that will help you do that right. Making your own wooden beams, you may choose the stain and even the texture of wood yourself – go for reclaimed or weathered wood to emphasize that rustic feel.
