Charming Wooden Beams

Wood is the most common natural material used in constructions. Since the early establishments people cut down big logs and built shelters. Many thousands years after those early establishments wood is still a part of our everyday life and still protects us from the nature’s elements. I personally like wood very much and it makes me feel comfortable and safe. I can trust wood. Therefore I like seeing wood everywhere, in any corner of my house.

One thing I like in particular and I didn’t quite get the change to have it is represented by the exposed wooden beams. I live in Romania, the country of Count Dracula and a place with great history, castles and reminiscence of great cultures still very well preserved today. Exposed wooden beams are part of that. This type of architecture is suited for a warm interior that has a homey feel.

When people hear of exposed wooden beams on the ceiling, beams that support the roof automatically think of old, traditional. Let me tell you something; I have seen modern interiors that featured great horizontal wooden beams and nice glossy walls and cabinets. Still the exposed wooden beams “trademark” has a certain special charm that you will find only in traditional places; homes that have history and witnessed time passing by, generations over generations.{picture sources:1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10}.
