Great Room with Exposed beams.



Welcome to our gallery featuring the gorgeous faux wood beams from Barron Designs!

Faux wood is a unique option that’s budget friendly and in some cases, can look incredibly real, especially when the planks are make from high-density polyurethane.

Barron Design’s products are made from this polyurethane, which means they are able to create near perfect replicas of many different species of wood. The best part is that these faux wooden beams will never split, rot, or warp the way natural wood does over time.

However, there are some things to keep in mind when shopping for the right faux wooden beams for your living room, kitchen, dining room, or wherever!

Always consider the existing wood in the room. If you have honey oak cabinets in your kitchen or trim in your living room, you’re not going to want to go with a color or wood that will clash. Architectural beams should always enhance the existing design, rather than draw away from it.

Choose wood types that match your existing trim or cabinetry. You’ll love the cohesive look it creates.

Structural issues are another thing to keep in mind. While faux wood beams are incredibly light, much lighter than natural wooden beams, they still have weight and must be supported by the ceiling structure.

If the structure can’t hold up to the additional weight,  you could end up with lot of mess and some seriously expensive repair bills. It’s best to be safe and make sure your ceiling can stand the weight of the added beams.

If you keep all these things in mind as you shop for the perfect faux beams for your design. Rustic, modern, contemporary, or industrial, the perfect design is out there. You just have to find it.

We hope you’ll enjoy and draw inspiration from this gallery of completed projects by Barron Designs.
