Recommendation: What species wood for ceiling box beams?

2 months ago

Hi everyone,

I'm planning to install some box beams on my ceiling, and I'm wondering what species of wood would be best to use for this project.

Here are some details about my space:

  • The ceiling height is 9 feet.
  • The box beams will be purely decorative and not support any structural loads.
  • The style of my space is modern farmhouse.

I've been considering using poplar, cedar, or pine for the box beams, but I'm open to other suggestions as well. I want to choose a wood that will complement the rest of my decor and give my space a warm, inviting feel.

Do you have any recommendations for what species of wood I should use for my ceiling box beams? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
