Features of a Kitchen With Ceiling Beams
Regardless of which rooms have exposed ceiling beams, they can always be used to take a room from minimalist and cold to open concept and warm. With carefully selected lighting, furnishings, and color schemes, ceiling beams can take any rustic or traditional style kitchen to the next level.
Exposed ceiling beams are usually seen in a rustic or traditional kitchen, with an opposing ceiling color, but you’ll find that you can make ceiling beams work in any kitchen if you keep a few notes from the following in mind.
The choice of carefully placed pendant lights or recessed lights can accentuate some of the features of your kitchen if they’re placed in between your exposed ceiling beams. The addition of pendant lights near or between the ceiling beams in your kitchen can create a warm or inviting space in an already near perfect kitchen.
If you’re going for a more cohesive look in your kitchen, you’ll want to consider adding a few wooden pieces of furniture that match the color of your ceiling beams. A wooden table and chairs can help with bringing the room together, and if you have windows in your kitchen, curtains or blinds that complement your ceiling beams can be a great addition. Also, you can add counter knick-knacks that complement the color of your ceiling beams.
Depending on what look you’re going for, whether it’s rustic or traditional, the color scheme of your kitchen can assist your ceiling beams with bringing all the elements in your kitchen together.
For example, if you have dark ceiling beams in your kitchen it can highlight the lighter colors on your walls and floors. Conversely, if you have a dark space, ceiling beams made of dark wood that match dark floors can help bring the room together.
