Although ceiling beams best define the rustic interior decors, they are actually popular and versatile and they can complement any type of décor. They add something beautiful to any style. We often see modern or contemporary interiors that feature exposed ceiling beams. In these types of decors, the wooden beams add warmth to a space that is usually minimalist and white.
The kitchen is a very particular space. On one hand, it already feels inviting because it’s usually part of the main living area. On the other hand, it seems rather cold because of all the appliances and the color palette which is often neutral or white. It’s when ceiling beams come in very handy. They give the kitchen the warmth we want and they also make it look extra charming.
The atmosphere is always more warm and inviting when there are exposed wooden beams on the ceiling. Whether they stand out and contrast with the background color or whether they blend in, they make the room feel very cozy.
When you paint the beams the same color as the ceiling, you instantly make them blend in more easily but they are still visible. In the case of the kitchen, this option is often preferred because it gives the room a cohesive look.
Although they tend to have a traditional look, ceiling beams are a wonderful way of making a décor seem more casual, warm and inviting. They usually complement beautifully an industrial-style décor by attenuating the coldness that comes with this style. In the case of the kitchen, this is a very welcomed detail given all the appliances that usually restrict the decor.
