Remodeling your home is a wonderful way to breathe new life into a building you already love. The cabin style is particularly cozy, with warm wood tones and the feeling of rural isolation even if you're in the middle of a city. When remodeling your interior, there are a few essential elements that create the rustic cabin style. Natural wood, exposed beams, and open family design are all part of the charm.
Architectural finishes are among the most elegant and subtle improvements you can make to your home. Polyurethane or hollow wood moldings add shape, style, and texture to a room without taking away from the main living-area focus. The most beautiful architectural finishes usually mount directly in the upper corners and to the ceiling itself. Of course, this means you will be mounting your finishes directly to the ceiling in order to install them into place.
Before you get started, it's important to know whether your ceiling is strong enough to support architectural finishes. Even though polyurethane and hollow wood are very lightweight, they still weigh a reasonable amount, particularly in large pieces. Most ceilings can support these finishes but you don't want to be surprised if your home's ceiling is too weak and at risk of giving way. So today, we're here to walk you through the practical steps of testing your ceiling's strength to ensure it is strong enough for new architectural finishes.
