||Wood Plank Ceilings
|If you are looking for a ceiling that gets
a reaction of “wow,” “spectacular,” or “gorgeous,”
consider installing a wood plank ceiling.
Wood plank was the traditional ceiling before
plaster and drywall became the standard.|
Wood plank ceilings create the warm, comforting
ambience of country cottages and wood cabins,
and they are suitable for most rooms in the
house except those with high humidity. Available
in a wide variety of woods, shades, and styles,
they can be installed as the original ceiling
or used to cover up a cracked, stained, or
irregular ceiling. Although pre-finished
planks make the job quicker to complete and
can give a more uniform finish, unfinished
planks that you stain yourself lets you match
any other wood in the room or provide just
the right contrast. The wood plank ceiling
can be a suspended ceiling of wooden plank
panels or a solid ceiling of planking (like
a wood floor).
Although more easily installed in flat, proportionally
correct spaces, wooden plank ceilings can
be put in odd sized ceilings, vaulted ceilings,
multilevel ceilings, and ceiling with skylights.
For extra impact, consider a circular or
radial design. Various types of trim pieces
are available to add a more distinctive style
to your ceiling. Wooden beams are another
option you might want to consider.
