Stylish decors featuring warm, rustic, beautiful wood ceilings

Just like the wooden floors, a wood ceiling adds warmth and texture to a room. Wood is a soft but strong and durable material and has some very impressive and beautiful qualities. Each type of wood has its own characteristics but they all share a similar elegance and a natural beauty that is difficult to replicate.When you decide to have a wooden ceiling in a room, that space will automatically become more inviting, welcoming and will have a cozier atmosphere.

But there’s much more to this detail than you see. A wooden ceiling can be casual, elegant, rustic, modern, traditional, exotic, etc. The ceiling is only one of the main elements that contribute to the overall décor and atmosphere. It’s important to focus on all the elements in order to obtain a coherent and beautiful décor. For example, you can match the ceiling with the floor and use similar types of wood and stain colors.

Another idea is to use the ceiling as an accent feature. You can do that by painting the walls crisp white or other bright color and allowing the ceiling to contrast and to stand out. You can use soft textures to continue on the same line and to create a warm and cozy décor or you can focus on creating contrasts. You can also have wood-paneled walls and this way the barrier between the walls and the ceiling would disappear. There are lots of ideas you can choose and it all depends on your preferences.
