As obsessed as we are with decorative ceiling tiles, we hate to admit this, but there are spaces where they don’t quite work. Sometimes, less really is more. But that does not mean your ceiling needs to be boring. Pretty much all ceilings benefit from a pop of something whether it is color, ceiling tiles, fabulous mouldiings, or even a unique medallion. And since today’s design trends are incorporating  more and more natural looking elements into home interiors, wood beams can create that much needed pop of color and dimension. But wood beams can be extremely expensive and difficult to install. On the other hand, faux wood beams are quite possibly be the perfect solution. Light weight and easy to install, high quality faux would beams are almost indistinguishable from the real thing from a distance. And ceilings are neither seen up close nor touched by most average height adults.

We have included the featured video narrated by our friend Milan over at Decorative Ceiling Tiles explaining exactly what you need to know when selecting your faux wood beams. And once you decide on the color, texture and size of you beams, Milan has created How2 videos for that too and will walk you through the entire faux wood beam installation process.

4. Place Your Order

Our best recommendation is to order the beam you like best. But if you are in a hurry and unable or unwilling to wait the 4-5 weeks it takes to order the majority of Volterra’s faux wood ceiling beams, definitely consider ordering a quick ship faux wood Monolithic beam. These beams generally can be delivered in 5-7 days.

Made from high-density polyurethane foam (HDF), faux wood beams are easy and inexpensive to install, virtually maintenance free and can be used for interior or exterior applications. An optional fire-rated resin used in production is also available for beams designed for interior use.
