Wood Ceilings Add Warmth And Richness

We have a vaulted ceiling in our main living space that is covered in less-than-desirable popcorn goop.  It's fine.  One doesn't seem to focus on it much.  But why have a nice vaulted ceiling if you're just trying to make people ignore it?

Adding wood to your ceiling adds interest and many times makes the difference between a nice room and a spectacular room.

Many think a wood ceiling would make your space too dark.  But there are so many options for a wood ceiling, including painting it white (or any other color).  It still adds a nice detail that most homes don't have.

If an entire wood ceiling seems too much for you, then consider adding wood beams (or even fake wood beams).  The idea is to draw attention to a space that is normally overlooked.

Today we're highlighting some gorgeous wood ceilings for you to peruse.  Consider how you might incorporate some of these looks into your next project.

I love the color contrast of the wood ceiling and the walls in this room. I like the bank of small windows, that might be something that would work in the living room above the fireplace as well.:

Love the vaulted ceiling window combo...note the grey and white tones.  The best ones always have a warm or colour object or treatment area.:
