Exposed ceiling trusses adds a stylish visual aesthetic to any living space in your home, making it feel warm and cozy, not to mention it is very in trend. When restoring an old home, it has become very common to expose wood beams, adding to the charming history of the home. Exposed ceiling trusses adds an inviting element to any room, no matter the design scheme—beach house, traditional, minimalist, contemporary and even Scandinavian!

They add a touch of rusticity to your home that is warm and welcoming. Whether you have a new build and want to incorporate this aesthetic into your home, or you wish to preserve the beams in an older home, we have plenty of inspiration to share with you. If you want to replicate the look for less, you can install wood trusses built with straight or arched faux wood. This offers endless possibilities for any ceiling project in your home. Enjoy!
