Plank Ceilings are so “In”

When I post something to my blog it is something I truly love and would like to have in my own home!! Plank ceilings are no exception. As I have stated before, we are getting ready to do some remodeling in our fixer upper home and I have  collected ton of  photos of all the things I really like. It is nice to show my workers exactly what I want with a picture. Words are nice but when you are dealing with a home remodel project you need pictures so that “everyone” is on the same page. Even though I have decided what kind of plank ceiling I want I still see photo after photo of these incredible plank ceilings. So, lucky you – here are some more beauties!

Lets start with a Charles Faudree home. Other than the reclaimed wood ceiling there are so many other yummy details.

I love the pewter pitchers displayed on the sconces.

oops – this is really a coffered ceiling. I thought it had beadboard also but now that I look closer it doesn’t. Sorry bout that!

Ahh – seriously love this ceiling. Actually I love every detail of it.

Look at that big hunk of marble on the island.

It is bright, fresh , clean and open.

Wonder what this kitchen looks like after you have fixed a big meal with pots and pans everywhere??

This is a beautiful dining barreled ceiling.


Isn’t this room so fresh looking. I am not sure I like the lighting that was used on the columns.


This ceiling is high drama. It almost looks like the floor is on the ceiling.

Of course Phoebe Howard does beautiful ceilings. I believe this room is in one of her stores in Atlanta.

And here is a little nook in the same showroom – the starburst trim around the window is wonderful

There is a lot going on in this room that I think distracts from the ceiling. Gorgeous bedroom in my opinion though.

This is not exactly a plank style ceiling – but it is still a looker.

Seems that lantern style lighting and plank ceilings compliment each other rather well.

If you look out the large window you can see that this room has an incredible view of either a lake or a river.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you like plank ceilings as well. I would love to hear your comments.

The Importance of your 5th Wall – From Popcorn to Plank

Wood is not just for your floor. With a remodel in the near future I have been scouring photos of everything “home”. But for the last couple of years I have been taken with wood ceilings. There are some unbelievable ceilings out there. It is the plank ceilings that have my attention. Unfortunately we have those lovely popcorn ceilings. Seriously it is hard to fathom that those were popular. How could popcorn ceilings ever be seen as “cool”?  I like popcorn as a snack and especially at the movie theatre but not on my ceilings!! Oh well, what can I do now other than deal with them and move on?

The main rooms I am focusing on now are the kitchen and the family room. Here are some incredible and creative use of dealing with your 5th wall. But as you look at all of these photos imagine the ceiling without the plank design.  It kinda makes you think why we would only have plain and boring ceilings – doesn’t it?

This is exacting the ceiling I would love to have.

This kitchen has tons of character – not only the plank ceilings, but the cabinets mimic the awesome window over the sink. Looks like they have wood counter tops………I am not a fan of those because I have them. But that is a whole “nother” post. Oh, yeah – that farm sink is pretty awesome also!!!


I am not sure what room this ceiling is in but it is incredible. Reclaimed wood in a herringbone pattern. What is not to love?

 I imagine this is in a dining room.

This is in Phoebe Howards showroom in Atlanta. The wood is bleached and incredible.

Yes sir! I would be a happy girl having my breakfast in this room every morning. Every detail is so perfect. But again, I think the ceiling is what really makes the room.

I love this wood planked coffered ceiling. Perfect for a family room.

Again , not sure what room in the house this ceiling is in. Perhaps the entry. It is a true work-of-art.

All the details of this room are incredible. The windows, the herringbone brick floors, the moulding, and the sconces. Not to mention the blue plank ceiling.

Ahh, look at the pup on the swing. The Good Life!! I love this porch but trying to figure out the fan & the lantern. Are they one fixture or two??  Love the aqua blue ceiling.

Even bedrooms are a perfect place for plank ceilings

SO! What do you think of plank ceilings – or wood ceilings – or beadboard ceilings? Do yo think they make a difference in a room. I would love to hear your opinion.
