Help with dark beams
emspraterDecember 17, 2012
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?
