The decor with exposed beams in which room?

If you think the exposed beams are only for rustic decor, think twice! This raw accent is full of force in modern interiors of Scandinavian style, bohemian chic, industrial, ethnic chic, country etc. In addition, the exposed beams adapt excellently to any room, whether it is the kitchen or the bathroom. To bring a friendly note to the Nordic living room, for example, we opt for a decoration with exposed raw wood beams on the walls or the ceiling. Likewise, if you want to give a touch of character to the white bedroom, the exposed frame is the best ally.

The exposed wooden beams adapt to every type of interior and every room

How to integrate exposed beams into our interiors?

Very often, exposed beams are part of our interiors as a supporting construction of the roof or walls. However, even if the plan of our home does not include support beams, they can be integrated into the interior as a decorative element. In addition, it is also possible to use false beams to revive the monotonous look in any room. There are many decorative alternatives.

A fantastic solution to give more character to your decor

Exposed beams on the ceiling

First, you can freshen up your ceiling with a white paint and some decorative beams of light wood (for a more relaxing look) or dark wood (to create a visual contrast). In addition, if you prefer, you can lacquer or paint the beams in white, gray or black to easily adapt them to the palette used in the room. This type of ceiling is ideal for a room furnished in a traditional, Scandinavian, industrial, modern or exotic style..
