The latest additions to our line of products are Real Wood Box Beams
. Available in three distinctive wood texture styles, and offered in three-sided and four-sided options, they can be used to create a particularly gorgeous ceiling design. Made of virgin wood, they are each painstakingly faux finished to match the color, texture, and character of real vintage barn wood as closely as possible.
Adding real wood box beams to living room ceilings creates a dramatic new look.
From a distance and up close, it’s impossible to believe they aren’t authentic reclaimed wood that’s over 150 years old. Even more, the wood does exactly what real barn wood does in different environmental conditions.
Through a mineral-based wood treatment that acts as a reactive stain, the wood responds to moisture just like antique barn wood does. When they get wet, they darken in tone. And when they dry, their color gradually lightens. The result is a beautiful, weathered color that lends a truly rustic charm to any design.
The Heavy Hand Hewn texture has the beautiful, weathered look of real reclaimed barn wood.
The Barn Board Beams in Rustic Natural color are indistinguishable from authentic reclaimed wood.
The advantage of virgin wood over reclaimed wood is that it won’t crack, warp, twist or check. No insects will be found inside them either.
In addition to the aesthetic and environmental benefits of these box beams, they also have structural benefits not present in reclaimed beams.
Real Wood Ceiling Beams bring a comforting elegance to living spaces.
First, their widths are consistent from end to end. This makes it easy to cover things like I-beams and pipes.
