Tacwood Ceiling

If your design goals include creating a ceiling that’s sure to impress, check out these 4 stylish ways to use peel and stick reclaimed wood boards. 

Whether your tastes run toward the subtlety of texture or the bold statement of an accentuated architectural ceiling feature, you can use wooden planks to transform the heights of any room in your home.

Best of all, Tacwood’s hassle-free DIY barnwood panels make it easy to design and install a stunning expensive designer look at a fraction of the cost. Each Tacwood board is hand-finished to give your ceilings a seamless, sublime look.

Dropped, cathedral, tray, and coffered ceilings each provide a perfect foundation for peel and stick wood boards.  Based on the type of ceiling you have in your home, there’s a way to intensify their design appeal by adding the look and feel of the real wood character. 

1. Dropped Ceilings

Dropped ceilings, sometimes call suspended ceilings, are a timeless classic in home architecture, frequently found in large, tall rooms.

One way to make your dropped ceiling appear more contemporary while simultaneously accentuating its classic appeal is to add real wood paneling to the design.

For example, by installing the wood panels in a large rectangular design, you can create the illusion of a chic tray ceiling. Pair this design with an industrial-style light fixture made of metal and glass for a simple, trendy modern-meets-classic-meets-rustic feel.

2. Cathedral Ceilings

Cathedral ceilings add immediate grandeur and spaciousness to your home.  By following the roofline of your house, cathedral ceilings feature grand sloping sides that come together to form near-stratospheric sight lines that draw attention upward.

You can enhance this epic effect and simultaneously add some warmth to a space that can often feel too airy and cold by incorporating wooden panels into your cathedral ceiling design.

Consider paneling the entire ceiling, leaving room for just a row of recessed lighting at the very top to create a dome effect reminiscent of an old European cathedral.

3. Tray Ceilings

So-called for their resemblance to an upside-down tray, tray ceilings feature a deeply recessed area one-inch to one-foot deep.  Sometimes flat, or sometimes in contour with the roofline, a tray ceiling is often the perfect showcase for a prized chandelier or specially designed light fixture.

You can add to the overall effect of your tray ceiling and imbue it with real character by paneling it with wooden beams.

Try our Arctic Fjord white panels for a subtle look that will add just a touch of sophistication to your tray ceiling. If you keep the depth of your tray ceiling shallow and level with the height of the ceilings in your surrounding room, you can achieve a truly elegant, understated look. 

4. Coffered Ceilings

Similar to tray ceilings, coffered ceilings contain multiple recessed areas set-off by exposed beams.

One playful way to accentuate the design of coffered ceilings is to install wood paneling in an unusual geometric pattern, such as a grid or diagonal placement. When this ceiling design is paired with an industrial-style chandelier or pendant light in a bold geometric pattern, the sharp modern look is complete.
