7 beautiful timber-framed bedrooms

Beams may be the structural bones of a building but they also have bags of charm and these dreamy bedrooms show just why...

Beams are a fantastic way of adding aesthetic charm to a house, whether they are an original feature or an added afterthought. Versatile and durable, beams can sit anywhere in the house, but here we have hand-picked a selection of our favourite bedrooms to show them in their full glory.

Solid and sturdy
The dark colouring of these beams ensures they are the focal point of this room, while the knotted, gnarled texture adds an instant sense of historical charm.

Best of both
This bedroom has a really rustic feel, emphasised by the contrasting organic textures of stone and wood.

Chocolate box
This cute and cosy bedroom has plenty of character and authenticity owing to the wide, exposed beams and low ceilings.

Wild wood
This bedroom is bursting with wooden features, from the abundance of beams to the wooden floorboards and bed frame, it adds atmosphere and a sense of the outdoors.

Traditional features
The beams in this bedroom accentuate the high ceiling, adding interest and charisma as well as a hit of colour to contrast with the pale palette.

Dare to be different
If you are creating a faux beam structure in your house, you have the option to make a bespoke feature according to the size and shape of your room, such as this archway shown.

Natural elements
This bedroom is beautifully framed by these raw and rustic structural beams, adding contrast and structure to this loft conversion.
