Wooden ceilings: alternatives and uses

Wood is one of the main materials chosen by leading architects, interior designers and decorators to coat the interior of the rooms in many of the projects in which they work.

In this sense, the technical definition of interior claddings speaks of “the surface finish of the horizontal or vertical partitions of the building“, so when we think linings, we tend to imagine walls or floors covered with wood. It is for this reason that we would like to place special emphasis in to other parts of a room, which are considered “indoor” and, therefore, are also likely to be covered:

– Ceilings: their design also determines the overall concept of a project. The usual thickness for walls and ceilings cladding is 16 mm. These wooden panels are large and,  with a less  thickness than this, it is possible that the piece get arched. This thickness is used to prevent bending. To avoid this circumstance, it is advisable to add a backdraft of any type of wood to stabilize , with a varnish unfinished background for counterbalancing (if the pore is left open, air enters and if the other side is varnished, the board bens)

– Beams and columns: they are parts of a room in which we don’t often think about, but that may be decisive in the overall perception of a space. They usually go in the same thickness as the walls. Also, as you can see in the picture, coating the beams and columns with rusticated wooden effect, can add a lovely bucolic touch to your project. See how it looks our aged pine in the Posada Terra Santa, in Mallorca.

– Furniture: tablescabinets … In many cases, the board itself performs, the functional task, of surface or door, depending on the case, so it is usually served with a larger thickness

– Doors: especially for access inside a house, are coatings typically used with wood panels with thin thickness. One on each side of the door.
