A big part of the appeal in this modern farmhouse living room is the ceiling detail. So let’s look up, because I have some amazing ceiling ideas for your modern farmhouse! Whether you like beams, shiplap, or another ceiling treatment, there’s something here for everyone.
Ceiling Ideas For Your Modern Farmhouse
One of the biggest things in modern farmhouse ceilings are beams. It’s no secret that beams add loads of interest and appeal to a ceiling–even if it isn’t a modern farmhouse. There is a lot of leeway in the type of beams you could use for your modern farmhouse ceiling. How do you like the rustic look of reclaimed wood beams and black iron supports in the example above? I really like it!
Ceiling ideas for your modern farmhouse could easily eliminate the black iron supports in favor of a less industrial look. And ceiling beams for a modern farmhouse don’t have to be rustic. The types of wood, finishes and styles are pretty limitless.
Here’s an example of white ceiling beams with supportive hardware painted to match. What I really like about this ceiling idea is that the ceiling itself is dressed in warm wood shiplap. As a result, both the beams and the shiplap get to shine!
In vintage farmhouses, many people utilized tin on the ceiling. In today’s modern farmhouses, tin is still an option for ceiling decor. Tin is pressed to create a design, and the design options are endless. One of my favorite modern farmhouse kitchen ceilings has a recessed ceiling adorned with tin like this. Here are some other ways to incorporate tin into your modern farmhouse.
Shiplap alone is always a great option when talking about ceiling ideas for your modern farmhouse. Shiplap can be applied to any ceiling, and it doesn’t have to be white. Finish it with a stain, paint it, or leave it with its natural color. And the best part is that shiplap can cover a ceiling in any room of your farmhouse, even the outdoor porch or sunroom.
