Long before plaster and gypsum, there was wood….so woodwork on kids’ room ceilings is really nothing new.
Because it was used more often a few generations back, many have not experienced the warmth, unique style, and comfortable look wood adds to a room.
Improving space overhead with wood can take a kid’s room design to dramatic new heights (pun intended!), however scale must be kept proportional or kids will feel “the sky is falling” for sure.
There are 5 different types of wood treatments: panel, plank, beadboard, slat, and beam. Which type you choose depends on the room design.
Many different wood types are available and finish can vary from rough-hewn to smooth, natural to paint to stain, including both new and reclaimed wood species.
Look up at these beauties!
