Faux wood beams are a great way to implement the look of wood without the cost or hassle of solid reclaimed wood!

As we begin our remodel adventure (officially breaking ground on Thursday!), I have had to become versed in windows, wood floors, doors, etc… I can’t drive by a house now without checking to see if their windows are vinyl or wood, but that’s a whole other blog post.

During the remodel, we will need to add a wood post to our kitchen, very similar to the photo below, because we are removing a load bearing wall. The post will separate the living room and kitchen, and I am now obsessed with all wood beam interiors.

We will be using a metal post wrapped in wood – probably something reclaimed from the ranch. But after staring at so many wood beams, I am not considering adding a few in the kitchen. The beams in the kitchen below look like they could be faux, if not, they wouldn’t be difficult to recreate in a faux manner.

Do you have any experience with wood beams? I’d love to hear them in the comments!

Elizabeth Kirby of Local Milk has one of THE most amazing blogs, and her house doesn’t disappoint either. Both images below showcase her style and wood beams done in the very best way.

Not only am I in love with these beams, but those doors are my everything inspiration for our house. The windows in the kitchen below are incredible too!

Something tells me these aren’t recleaimed wood beams…

  1. Hello Chloe, I came across your blog when I typed barn beams. Your home is exactly the style I am changing to. We also moved from the city to our farm, back in 2002.
    We raise beef cows, we also run 2 businesses in town. I also try to work with what I have most of the time. We live with Amish Neighbors and get help from them for my ideas. I’m slowly installing hand hewn beams in our home. Little at a time, due to the prices can be pricey. I was happy to come across your blog, it just reminds me of me.:) my husband and I, wished we would of made our move to the country sooner while we were young.
    We built our farm, from a Amish family. It was nothing but a cornfield. We love where we live, and never for a moment looked back. Were so thankful for everyday on our farm. Best Regards, Maria
