Help with dark beams
December 17, 2012 in Design Dilemma
In the process of redecorating. Dark stained woodwork, dark stained exposed beams on vaulted ceiling make the rooms cave like. Plans are for a lighter look with whitewashed cedar porcelain plank style tiles, board and batten wall treatment, new shaker style cabinets in kitchen. Updating is for kitchen / great room separated by a one sided brick fireplace wall with built in shelves on either side. Should the dark ( almost black stain ) rough cedar beams be painted to mimic the new flooring color?
