5 Architectural Ceiling Designs with DecoWood

12 March 2018

Architectural timber features offer some great looks for ceilings and high spaces and can take a room from fine to fabulous in an instant. They can achieve a wide range of looks from sophisticated, contemporary lines to traditional, rustic beams.

However, natural timber is not always appropriate for high ceiling applications due to its heavy weight making it hard, and sometimes dangerous, to install. For outdoor applications, timber becomes a nightmare to maintain and will always require ongoing maintenance to keep your feature looking fresh.

DecoWood, Australia’s premium wood grain finish, is the perfect solution for timber-look ceiling features. The finish can be applied to hundreds of aluminium profiles, offering a light-weight timber alternative for large and bulky extrusions or for shapes where real timber simply wouldn’t work. Better still, DecoWood will withstand Australia’s harsh environmental conditions, never needs painting or staining, and will maintain its original appearance for years to come.

Here are 5 ways to use DecoWood for your next architectural ceiling project.

The Dunes Village Shopping Centre in Torquay, Victoria used DecoWood’s long 6.5 metre battens to create a spacious and contemporary feel to this outside eating area.

Bing Lee’s headquarters just outside Sydney in New South Wales wanted a timber-look for their story entry. Aluminium sheets finished in DecoWood were selected to add a unique look with easy installation.

Concord Hospital in New South Wales used large battens combined with a lightening installation to create a feature and visually divide the room for this seating area.
