When decorating a room, a special attention is usually payed on walls and flooring, while the ceiling is left white and flat. Although this is a common design for a ceiling, it can look a kind of boring, so nowadays interior designers try to think of some more impressive designs. Such designs are the exposed or open ceilings, that look like they are revealing something. They can be set into every room. Today we are bringing to you a collection of Living Rooms With Exposed Beams to show you how such exposed ceilings can be a striking addition to versatile living rooms.  

The flat ceilings hide the construction elements of the home, but the exposed beams show off the bones of the home in an interesting way. The exposed beams can be found in industrial or rustic interiors, as well as in some modern ones. As an architectural feature, they can make the space look unique and less boring. They expose the structural elements of a home and at the same time give a natural contrast to any room.

Exposed ceilings can definitely change the look of any room and give it a warm and cozy atmosphere. The perfect mach with these beams are the accent stone walls and wood flooring.
