What Color to Repaint my Ceiling Beams?

We have a house (built in 1918) that has large ceiling beams in both the living and dining room. This wood trim goes along the edge of the wall and then across the ceiling (in a grid in the dinning room). Unfortunately the previous owners painted them a dark brown (to look like a dark stain I imagine) but it is bad. All the wood work is a dark mahogany like stain and although there are many windows, it is very dark. We are repainting everything! Where can I find pictures of different color combinations for ceilings with painted beams? I really need help visualizing how it will look in a few different ways to decide.Thank you for the help!


If you are planning to start on your woodworking project, this isn't something you should use, it's something that you would be insane not to.

It is a dirty job and if you're really interest to do that ,by a Sand machine grind all the surface of the beams till naturals wood color appear.Then by birch color wood finishing and apply it by brush or roller ,this finishing will gave you a bright color of natural wood which with a red tomato paint and same color molding in living room you will have a delicate room to enjoy.

Check okorder.com Go to the ColorSmart section. I used the Behr Color Tool. Select a color family. Choose your color. Click on Select this color. Click on Preview. Click on Use a Sample Photo. Click on Bedroom. The third picture actually has ceiling beams in it. You can pick different colors for the ceiling, the beams, and the walls. Hope this helps.
