We are heading into that part of the year again when we take a look at the trends that are going to shape the year ahead in the world of design and decorating while also looking back at the best of the year we are leaving behind. But one trend that is cutting across these traditional lines in the world of bedroom decorating is the use of the gorgeous and striking ceiling 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. A love for the vintage and the growing popularity of styles like rustic, industrial and farmhouse 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. Cozy, elegant and even modern when they intend to be, this is a look at the best bedrooms with ceiling beams from all across the globe. From the innovative to the classic, ceiling beams in bedrooms make an impact every single time.
Finding the Right Style in the Bedroom
A bedroom with ceiling beams is not limited to classic, industrial 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. 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!
When the Ceiling Steals the Spotlight
Keeping the rest of the room as neutral as possible is one of the easiest ways to ensure that the ceiling beams stand out visually. Painting them in a different color also helps with this and repeating the wooden tones elsewhere gives the bedroom a curated and classy presence. This can be done with bed frames in the same finish, window frames that are similar to the ceiling beams or even bookshelves that feel like an extension of the beams above. The best bedrooms with ceiling beams are those that use them in an understated yet, dashing fashion.
Trendy White, Rustic and More
When it comes to ceiling beams, there are plenty of different styles, finishes and hues to choose from. But the most popular among them all is undoubtedly the wooden beams painted in white. They either blend into a neutral backdrop that already uses white or stand out visually because you are using a darker hue for the backdrop. No matter which route you take, these ceiling beams always come up trump. Fabulous wooden logs that for the modern rustic bedroom or those that accentuate the vaulted ceiling with their grand presence – the choices are aplenty.
