Out of all the interior touches one can opt for in order to ensure some extra style, nothing comes close to good old-fashioned ceiling beams (in our opinion, at least).

Just think about how versatile they can be – they can fit in with just about any style (yet are more synonymous with rustic and country-style settings); can flaunt any colour to complement the furnishings and décor; and they can be used in any room, from the kitchen and living room straight through to the bathroom.

So, just in case you require some inspiration for interior wooden beams in your home, have a look at these 7 examples…

1. Want those beams to evoke a peaceful, almost romantic vibe? Simply paint them white!

2. How clever! Inserting skylights amongst those beams for a pretty-and-practical look.

3. These timber beams, in the same look and style as the walls, ensure a consistent beauty in this rustic cottage.

4. Who knew that wooden beams (in the right design and colour) could complement any interior style, even this delightfully colonial living room?

5. Nothing beats wooden beams keeping guard over a country-style kitchen – such homeliness and warmth!

6. Of course ceiling beams can also be made up to look “professional” for the right environment, as seen in this stylish study.

7. Another great benefit about beams? They can interrupt a monotonous look, as seen in this kitchen, where the ceiling ensures a striking touch.
