Have you ever walked into a home with extravagant vaulted ceilings with rustic exposed beams? If so, you probably wondered how exposed beam ceilings would look in your home. Let’s look into that and see if this is a feature you should consider.

You don’t have to have a vintage or rustic-styled home to incorporate exposed beams into your space without it looking out of place. You’ll find in the examples we have curated below that many designers are using exposed beams to add a rustic twist to incredibly modern and high-end style homes. Exposed beams are a great way to add warmth to a space, as the stained finish is typically in some form of natural warm wood-toned color, although you could definitely pull off colors like black or white too! They also help to draw the eyes upwards towards the ceilings. This is an especially dramatic effect if you have vaulted ceilings, with which you could even go a step further and add trusses in addition to the beams for a real authentic mountain lodge get-away feel.
