If you live in an Arts & Crafts home or a Victorian Era home, you may be lucky enough to have exposed wood ceiling beams in your living room. If you love this unique look but don’t have wood beams in your living room, many designs can help you achieve the look.

Exposed Wood Beams in Small and Large Living Rooms

As you browse our gallery of Living Rooms with Exposed Beams, you will notice that many of the living rooms are large and have a high or vaulted ceiling. While this size of living room works best for an elaborate design of exposed beams, you can have wood ceiling beams in small living rooms, too.

If you have a smaller-sized living room, wood ceiling beams look best when they are simple (given that you have less space to work with).

Selecting a Living Room Design To Match Your Wood Beams

Although many living room designs with wood beams are Rustic, Cottage Style, Chalet, and Craftsman, you can make any design work with wood ceiling beams.

For instance, if you’re in love with the Beach design, don’t be afraid to play around with accents and color to make the beams fit into the design style. Do you have exposed wood beams that are antique and look a little rough? Rather than painting or replacing them, choose a design that will compliment them (such as Farmhouse or Eclectic).

Using The Right Colors

While wood beams complement a variety of colors, don’t forget to consider the tone of the wood when selecting colors for your living room. For a dark finish on your wood ceiling beam, consider pairing with green, blue, or brighter colors like yellow or white.

If the ceiling beam is a golden-yellow, warm colors like red or earthy greens pair well. Have antique, reclaimed wood on your ceiling? This type of wood looks great with almost any shade of color.

Faux Ceiling Beams

Although having exposed ceiling beams built-in to your living room design is ideal for many homeowners who like the look, you can add wood ceiling beams to your living room. One of the benefits of adding exposed ceiling beams to your living room is that you can get creative with design and have control over how it looks (it’s harder to change beams that are already built-in).
