Decorating Your Fifth Wall

Here’s an easy question. How many walls are in a room? Many people would say the answer is four… but they’d be wrong.

The ceiling is the not-so-famous fifth wall of a room… and it shouldn’t be ignored.

A ceiling medallion around a light fixture or a contrasting shade of paint color can make a ceiling stand out. But to create a truly “knock ‘em dead” statement in a room, consider adding a coffered ceiling treatment. 

At Ornamental Moulding and Millwork, our new Rustic Beams are ideal for this type of ceiling application. Because they’re faux beams (or hollow on the inside) the pieces are lightweight in nature and easy to handle.

Our online instruction sheet gives step-by-step details on how to install this show-stopping piece of art for the fifth wall. With simple tools and our Ambrosia or Gray Rustic Beams, you can create magic. And, if you have a Craftsman or Mission style home, you’ll be especially interested in our accent black strap hardware that can also be installed on the beams.

 The next time you enter a room in your house, look up. And just imagine how much beauty a wood beam ceiling application would bring to your home.
