Guidelines for beam sizing?
We would like to include beams on the ceiling in some rooms of our new house. These wouldn't be structural beams, but just for aesthetic purposes. As I've been looking at pictures online, I notice that the beams sometimes look way too large for the space and stand out too much, but on the other hand sometimes look far too small, almost like toothpicks on the ceiling. Does anyone know of any guidelines or rules of thumb for beam sizing in relation to room size and ceiling height? If anyone has pictures and would be willing to post with the room size, ceiling height, and size of beams that would be great. Thanks!
