Since centuries, wood is used as primary source for construction- let it be ordinary palaces, Cathedral or ancient huts. Even nowadays wood is used as a major material for the decorating, building and ceiling purposes. The major reason behind this is the unique glamor and charm associated with wood, which builds up warm ambience.

by Reynolds Architecture & Construction
Modern coffered ceilings are designed with sunken panels of regular patterns in the shape of a square, rectangle, or octagon. Usually coffered ceilings are built with wooden beams of different size. Vivid dark painted beams over the light colored ceiling makes the details of the whole structure more noticeable and crisp. Contrasting dark and white paint on ceiling has enhanced the texture details of the room, making the room more vibrant.

The addition of beams to wooden ceilings adds a spectacular tone to your space. The idea of having a beam can be accomplished by using either real wood or other material; this material can be molded, polished, grinded and colored to resemble real wood. The attachment of lights to the bottom of beam creates cozy ambience. The light shaded wooden ceiling has flooded the room with warmth and coziness. Overall, the mixture of wooden panels and dimly lit lights are perfect. If you desire to have an experience of peace-filled atmosphere, surely go for this ceiling.
Patterned Wood Ceilings
This ceiling uses the concept of flat textured wooden planks on ceiling. One method to achieve this idea is by closely arranging small wood pieces together. These geometrical patterns create an eye-catchy surface. Second pattern is easier and requires less effort to produce the same effect. Its only requirement can be additional paint or stain coats that will finalize the look of it and give it a perfect tone.
To create a wave-like pattern, you can use the concept of imprinting lighter shades on dark colored wood and darker colors on light colored wood. This design is suitable for small rooms and shops. Despite the fact that it is economical and easier to construct, it look quite expensive and stunning! The geometrical pattern gives an illusion of scattered light rays.
