Flooring on Ceiling- Hardwood Upside Down

How much time do you spend looking up? I can tell you I’d have a lot less cobwebs and dust bunnies if I spent more time looking at my ceilings 😉 Today I’m talking about a growing trend of using flooring on ceiling and walls.  Hardwood is always a great option – and it is no longer limited to what’s underfoot. We are seeing hardwoods installed as headboards for the bed, as feature walls and on ceilings in many homes in Nashville.

Flooring on Ceiling- Hardwoods are not just for floors.

Tongue and groove ceilings used to be more commonly found on porches. While still widely used for porches and in outdoor rooms, home-owners are adding architectural interest by installing tongue and groove flooring on the ceiling. Using hardwoods in  unexpected ways is a fresh and modern approach to design. This trend is for all tastes with everything from straight edge glossy finishes on the wall to a more rustic look with hand-scraped beveled hardwoods to Eco-conscious choices using reclaimed hardwoods. Flooring on ceiling is a trend that will be with us for quite a while. We love what we’ve been seeing.
