Have you noticed the trend towards stained wood ceiling treatments, both rustic and refined? Today I want to show you some ceiling details I’m loving and which I’m considering for an exciting new project, which I’ll tell you more about later. One thing that I know for sure about this new project is that it will have some lovely wood ceiling details. Whether that means rustics beams, tongue in groove on vaulted ceilings, or stained planking on flat ceilings remains to be seen.
But here are some of my favorites that are in the running so far:
SIMPLE RUSTIC BEAMS
I love the simplicity of this single beam separating the eating area from the cooking area of the kitchen. I love the idea of having a visual separation like this.
Here’s an example that shows a similar concept – single rustic beams. In this case, the homeowners added the beams lining the opening from kitchen to living room.
I know I’m straying from beams in the ceiling here, but these next two shots show rustic beams lining the opening between rooms. I love this idea, too. Especially if you were to pair it with beams in the ceiling in one of these adjoining spaces.
Isn’t is wonderful how adding this simple rustic texture adds soooo much interest to these spaces?
TONGUE IN GROOVE WITH BEAMS
Okay, moving on…another look that I’m really loving is a vaulted ceiling with rustic beams that run up the ceiling. I know beams running across the bottom of the vault are popular in mountain homes, but I prefer this look. It seems less busy and distracting to me.
Note the tongue-in-groove wood between the beams. I love how those two elements really work together to make this ceiling special. It’s kind of the yin yang thing – tailored white tongue-in-groove meets rustic beams. So visually striking and beautiful.
In this example above, the tongue-in-groove boards are stained the same as the beams. It’s another pretty look – throws maybe a little cozier vibe than the white painted boards above. In this case, I love how the more casual ceiling treatment looks with the beautiful, slightly modern and dressy chandelier. Perfection!
And here we have a very similar treatment, but with much more rustic finishes. Still beautiful and tailored because of the furniture that’s used in the room.
Can you tell I’m also loving the black steel windows? Total swoon going on there – I’m just afraid they’re not going to make the budget cuts for my project. I’ll be talking more about this black steel window look and how to get in for less in a post soon. But for now, suffice it to say that I love the combination of black windows, white walls, and rustic ceilings.
In this case, we have the beams (lighter stain) running up a vaulted ceiling, but without the tongue-in-groove detail between. This gives a cleaner, slightly more modern look. Especially in this case when paired with more modern details such as the lighting and the streamlined fireplace.
STAINED PLANKING OR TONGUE IN GROOVE CEILINGS
I’m really loving this trend of planking or tongue-in-groove ceilings that are stained a natural color rather than being painted white, which is a more traditional look.
I love how this simple ceiling detail adds so much warmth, texture, and a more rustic feel to these rooms. (More of those beautiful black windows!)
I’m thinking of adding stained planking to the entryway ceiling in this upcoming project. I think it would make for a really warm welcome to a home. And look at it in this pretty kitchen – the natural wood adds so much warmth and texture to this predominantly white space.
What do you think of this stained wood ceiling trend? Which one would you try?
