Exposed beams, even when painted, are dramatic. This design would totally fit the style of my house.

I'm not usually a fan of tin ceilings, but in this loft space, painted white, and modernized with track lighting, it feels contemporary and really works for me. This would be an easy solution I could achieve myself. I wish it were my favorite!
Oh, these ceilings with their faux bois panels between the the beams are killing me! I want to make this happen. Haven't figured out how to do it yet though. (Or maybe just how to do it affordably.)
A very similar look, but these wood planks look real. Adore this. I can't figure out how to make this happen without spending a fortune on materials and installation.
Really love this rustic wood ceiling with those beat-up super-distressed beams. Wouldn't this lend such instant character to any space?
My current inspiration. This is what blogger Chania did in her bedroom. Isn't it beautiful!? I am thinking I can make this happen with readymade wainscot panels and mdf boards. It would still be a ton of work, even with lots of help, but it might be affordable. Check out Chania's before and after here. She did an amazing job.
