How to Transform Your Space With Beams
Building or renovating a home or commercial environment can be exciting and stressful all at the same time. While you’re imagining new colors, textures, and finishes, the actual architecture of your space may be thwarting your plans. For example, you might be dreaming of a southwestern inspired pueblo but actually live in a 1950s ranch house. While you can’t magically transform your brick home into a textured adobe dream, adding something like rustic beams will help bring in the southwestern elements you crave. Using hollow box beams to create an effect like this is an affordable, eco-friendly, and chic way to transform your space. Our hollow box beams are made of salvaged wood and retain the traditional look of beams.
Why Use The Olde Mill Beams?
The Olde Mill’s beams are a great alternative to traditional beams. Lighter, less expensive, and more affordable, hollow box beams will get you bang for your buck. Additionally, box beams are:
- Easy to install
- Don’t require an additional support structure
- Resists warping or twisting
- Made of real, reclaimed antique wood
If you’ve ever considered traditional wood beams, don’t forget about box beams.
Reclaimed Architectural Box Beams Are Eco-Friendly Beams
A popular reason for choosing The Olde Mill to manufacture box beams is because they are eco-friendly. Not only are Olde Mill beams made from reclaimed wood (meaning no new trees were cut down to make them), there are other green benefits to them as well. Because these beams are hollow, they weigh less, meaning package weights and cargo shipping carbon costs are less than traditional wood beams. This means that at the end of the day, when you use hollow box beams, less CO2 is released into the air.
Additionally, Olde Mill Hollow Box Beams contain less chemicals than traditional beams. This leads to fewer chemicals being leached into the environment as well as fewer chemicals being brought into your home. When you install Olde Mill Hollow Box Beams, you know that your family is safe.
How to Install The Olde Mill’s Beams
Box beams are a snap to install. Because they are lightweight, they require less equipment to install and anchor them into the wall or ceiling and they don’t require support for indoor installations. You can even install them yourself.
If you need to wrap your beam around something, Olde Mill box beams come with one removable side, so wrapping your beam is easy.
