Faux Beams Make History

Faux Beams Make History

Our faux beams are popular because they offer an easy and affordable way to add period character to even modern homes. But Mary and Adam, from New England, gave our timber beams the ultimate thumbs up when they used them in their beautiful historic home.

Faux wood planks on the wall perfectly mimic colonial building techniques

“We’ve spent 14 years restoring a small, 230 year old house in New England,” write Mary and Adam Spencer, enclosing pictures of their stunning property. “I’m proud to say our restoration has even been featured in national magazines and books.”

“We’re fortunate enough to have the original hand hewn beams exposed in two of the rooms. We love the warm look of them, and really wanted some elsewhere in our home. Unfortunately cost and structural issues made getting solid wooden beams installed impractical.”

Mary and Adam found the answer on

“We recently ordered 3 of your long faux timber beams for the room, as well as some of the timber faux wood planks and corbels.”

“We used the corbels up against our real wood beams in the 4 corners of our bedroom, and installed the faux wood planks diagonally on the walls. The corbels exactly matched our original beams, and the timber planks instantly created the early, timber-framed cottage look we wanted!”

“In the dining room, we followed your installation instructions, and putting up the faux beams and timbers was easy. We are so thrilled with the results.”

Faux wood beams and faux wood corbels blend seamlessly with the existing, historic wood

What’s so impressive aren’t just the results – which you can see from these before and after pictures. It’s the fact that faux wood blended so seamlessly with the real thing; even in a house as historically significant as this one.

That’s an observation Mary and Adam have made, too. “We have a bed dated 1686, and you will see in our 'after' photos that it looks now as if it is in an original room of the period.”

“We are very picky about what we do in the house, and choose all our products with care. We’re ” The greatest vote of confidence they could give us? “We’ve ordered more timber planks for the walls in the living room – and we have three friends we’ve told about your company, and they plan to order as well!”
