To achieve a warm and cozy look in a room, there is nothing better than a wooden ceiling. Even with some planks, this type of design is a nice detail that gives warmth and personality to the spaces as a great trend for interior decoration.
Therefore, it is not abnormal that
the professionals bet because the main beauty of a house lies in using wood for ceilings, as well as for floors and furniture. 1. Why do we like wooden ceilings?
Wood is a material that has many advantages, one of them is the beauty of the material and depending on the treatment that has been given, it is of strong consistency and resistance, both features are decisive in terms of choosing a material for the ceiling and that is why most of the people opt for wooden images on their ceilings.

3. What is the best wood for the roof?
It is known that the types of roofs made of wood were made from Brazilian Pine, but today it is in extinction, being replaced with Paraná Pine, which has more knots and less resistance, although it is cheaper and used for reforestation. .
Hardwoods and tie rods such as Paraíso, Elliotis Pine and Knotless Pine are used for the beams.
Knots are irregularities or defects that appear in the wood, they are circular in shape and can also be very decorative. The knots are formed from the remains of a branch that has been torn off and has remained in the trunk and we can see them in this design thanks to the fact that the wood was kept in its most natural state, for a fresh and very natural design.
4. What is needed to install a wooden ceiling?
Before placing a wooden ceiling, it is essential to place the slats, which are thick slats (also made of wood) where the corresponding wooden plates will be placed with which the surface will be covered. Generally, square wooden plates are sold, which will be attached to the struts by using nails and screws; Although it is also recommended to use the same glue used by carpenters, in order that the union between the wooden boards is optimal.

House antástica where the rustic essence is combined with the modern, achieving spectacular spaces that do not need much decoration. 5. What is the maintenance of wooden ceilings?
The wooden ceiling is undoubtedly an extra that will give our home a special plus in decoration and a lot of elegance, but wooden ceilings need special care and proper maintenance.
The first step of all will be to clean and sand as in most wood restoration treatments, for this we must use coarse-grained sandpaper available in any hardware store, this will help us to leave the surface of our wooden ceiling completely smooth and uniform.
To remove the wood residues resulting from having sanded the ceiling we can do it with a damp cloth to continue with our work. The next step, once the surface is ready, is to observe if the wood has cracks, due to the passage of time and the conditions to which it is exposed; If this is the case, a special putty for wood is placed, with which the cracks will be covered, the product is allowed to dry according to the manufacturer’s instructions and then we will carry out the previous step again, we will sand so that the surface is completely smooth and we will return it to clean.
Once the entire ceiling area has been cleaned and restored, we will apply a product that we will also find easily so that our work lasts much longer and the wood looks sensational.

If you like the weathered look on your wooden ceiling beams, here are some tips for achieving a spectacular effect.
– On clean wood free of paints, varnishes and oils, an electric brush is passed with an accessory that grinds the wood (it eats the sapwood and makes the heartwood stand out, and then when giving it the color, it will look like a worn and old wood ).
– A coat of potassium dichromate salt is applied in the following proportion: 2 tablespoons of salt per 250 ml. of water. Leave it to act for a week and the wood will gradually toast, going from bright orange (almost yellow) to toasted gray. eye! If the beams are not pine, the potassium dichromate salt can have a very strong and immediate effect.
Everything will depend on the effect you want to achieve.
7. Wood ceilings are sturdy and fabulous
Unlike plasterboard ceilings, wooden ceilings are discontinuous, they are not damp, their surface is rigid, they have good stability and it allows fixing ceiling lamps, diffusers, etc. It is recommended that they have a waterproof fiberglass sheet, as this protects it from the humidity of the ceiling. A great advantage of this coating is that it is rigid, it is very quick to install, and it also provides beauty and elegance to the home.
The double height and the gabled design make this room look imposing, combining the rustic with the modern and, as if necessary, further emphasize the beauty of the ceiling with the modern lamps that are suspended giving a very warm and cozy lighting.
8. A kitchen with a wooden ceiling?
The kitchens with
made of wood are not usually very common, because they focus on some decorative styles such as those that have country inspiration. And due to the scarcity of wood, they have also become a detail that we see little, but if you are lucky enough to have one at home it is good to know more about them so that your kitchen always looks great.
A kitchen with a wooden ceiling demands a lot of care as it would be in any other space, but in the kitchen it tends to suffer from high temperatures, so it is important that the kitchen is very well ventilated, has an extractor hood or a smoke outlet that allows the ceiling does not suffer so much from the heat.
It is important to cover the ceiling with varnish so that it preserves the natural color, although today there are many imitations of wood to make ceilings and floors that are easier to maintain and last longer than the original wood.
9. Wooden countertops in the bathroom: And is it a good idea in the bathroom?
When choosing this type of coating for the bathroom, the key is that the wood is solid, such as Cedar and Carob. Also Iroco and Teak are alternatives; These are tropical woods that withstand steam and humidity well because they have a natural oil that makes them resistant to sun and water.
An impeccable finish that is resistant to the passage of time can be achieved as long as the wood is hard, not very porous and with a finish that works as a thermal insulator, that is, that it has been treated to resist water, steam and humidity . In addition, with the use of high quality wood, a cleaner environment is achieved, easy to clean and very resistant to daily use.
And if you combine it with stone and glass, the result will be sensational as in this example.
10. The beauty of having a wooden ceiling
The “hard” wood is chosen for the construction of wooden ceilings due to its great resistance. In this case, the rings are always shown close together. Wood is also, of course, a material that has always been in great abundance. That is why it is constantly being used for different purposes. Wood is one of the building materials par excellence, mainly due to that combination of abundance and resistance.
This noble material being so versatile, it allows all combinations and in all styles, managing to be a true protagonist without overshadowing the set of decorative elements that accompany it.
