Faux Wood Beams – Dark Walnut

Looking to add a little character to your space? Seeking decorative items on a budget? Look no further than decorative faux wood beams. They make it possible to style and refine your space in a cost-effective, elegant, and sophisticated manner.

Faux wood beams transform any space with their natural wood finish. Let’s look a little bit closer at what makes them such a good choice for your home.

  1. It’s difficult — if not impossible — to tell the difference between natural wood beams and faux wood beams. Faux wood beams give you all the advantages of not being real wood while still adhering to a warm and comfortable aesthetic.
  2. They’re strong and durable. You don’t always get that with real wood. Real wood can split in half, rot, dent, or chip easily. Faux wood beams take a lot less effort to care for and look flawless for years on end with minimal effort.
  3. They’re easy to install. Yes, you’ll have to put in the time and effort but the process is straightforward. You can easily install the beams on your own.
  4. They’re versatile. There is no proper way to use or instal faux wood beams. Be creative! There’s a place for them in any room. You can cross them, lay them vertically or horizontally, or put them in any configuration that best suits the aesthetic you’re going for.
  5. The pure number of product options out there and available to you is astounding. If there’s a specific style or color you want, chances are you’ll be able to find it with ease. Some beams even allow you to paint and finish them yourself if that’s what you’re looking for!

*Note: faux beams are hollow, unlike real wooden beams. This means that they can store or hide things like poles or wires inside of them. Keep this in mind when organizing your room’s layout!



How Do Use My Faux Wood Beams?

There are a number of ways you can configure your faux wood beams. Here are some of the most frequent designs we’ve encountered:

- To hide support beams in a fashionable way

- To accentuate ceilings of interior spaces, and especially high ceilings

- As door frames, to give it a log cabin or “rustic” sort of vibe

- To hide obtrusive items like poles and wires

- Around a fireplace, as a mantel

And that’s just the beginning. We’re seeing more and more decorators play around with faux wood beams, configuring them in ways we never thought of.
