Whether you are building a new home, renovating an old home or just trying to add some character, there are few things that can provide the look you are after than a custom designed and professionally built truss. Trusses are used to create vaulted or cathedral ceilings which can add more space to your home and create an aesthetic that will set your home apart from the rest making it all your own. When looking for new ways to add character to your home, look up and see the possibilities trusses can offer.
Ceilings are by far the most under-appreciated design area in any home. While many designers forgo the contribution a well-designed ceiling can add to any room, others chose to integrate bad ceiling design choices including the “popcorn” ceiling that was popular in the 1980’s. Today’ companies like TradTruss are trying to bring back beautiful ceilings and give homeowners more options and more custom designed choices when it comes to their home design.
Wide Range of Materials and Features
Modern trusses can be made from a wide range of materials including oak, Douglas fir, larch, redwood and engineered glulam. This ensures that the homeowner can achieve the custom look they are after and add brightness, drama, separation and personality to a room. Many custom builders can even create ceiling trusses that incorporate glazed gables, roof lights and more.
Modern Look with Exposed Wood Trusses
When you think of trusses using exposed timbers, something more rustic may come to mind. Although this is true, there are many modern styled homes that utilize exposed wood trusses in their design that are far from rustic. These contemporary wood trusses create a modern space by merging with clean and simple surfaces. Another option is a whitewash finish to the natural wood that provides an even more modern appearance.
