Room Lighting Ideas Using Beams

Room lighting that's well-placed with appropriate wattage can have a huge impact on the existing decor. A room that's dimly lit, too bright or one with harsh lighting in one corner and none in the other can ruin your whole aesthetic.

Lighting fixtures made from unconventional materials or with a touch of whimsy are a favorite of ours, particularly when they're paired with faux ceiling beams. This takes the design to a whole new level - graduating the lighting from utilitarian to an active piece of art that can either complement or serve as the focal point of the room.

Below are a few examples of customers who used clever lighting with our beams to create beautiful and cohesive looks.

Brent S. combined the clean, industrial style of a high-rise restaurant with the rustic appeal of a custom timber beam. The light bulbs in different shapes dripping in varying lengths from the single beam make for a charming effect.

Sean from Indiana had the ingenious idea of attaching vintage-style Bell Jar lights to a single Heavy Sandblasted beam that he installed between his kitchen and living room. The boldness of the beam provides the perfect platform for this creative and playful look. "This solution is perfect for the everyday customer as well as commercial uses. I would highly recommend them to anyone."
