Shed versus Beam Ceiling

For the month of February our Wednesday blogs will feature two different types of ceilings. We will compare the two and then we’ll let you choose which one you’d rather use!

Shed Ceiling versus Beam Ceiling

A look at Shed Ceilings:

Shed ceilings are found in homes with attic spaces. These are ceilings that include a slope that slants upward to one side, similar to a cathedral ceiling, however; the slope is not as steep meaning it provides better insulation and ventilation. The uneven wall height with shed ceilings gives a unique look to rooms.

A look at Beam Ceilings:

Beam ceilings are created by leaving load bearing beams exposed inside a home. The beams create a depth and contrast to the ceiling. Typically, these beams are made of hardwood. Most often you will find beam ceilings in living rooms and dining rooms.
