Remodeling 101: How to Get the Look of Wood Ceilings Anywhere

Armstrong Ceilings June 29, 2023

Not every home has real wood ceilings, but there’s an easy way to get the look: Armstrong Ceilings provides cost-effective, stylish, and low- or no-maintenance plank options to decorate that oft-overlooked “fifth wall.”

The planks are incredibly simple to install, without any demolition—so you can use them to cover up popcorn ceilings, drywall, or even a drop-ceiling grid system and easily transform any room for the better.

For a real-wood look, there are three plank options in Armstrong Ceilings’ lineup: Country Classic, Easy Elegance, and WoodHaven. The rustic-chic Country Classic plank is made of cost-effective mineral fiber, and it’s available in White plus three new colors: Light Gray, Light Beige, and Medium Beige. Maintenance-free Easy Elegance ceilings are the optimal solution for spaces where both a plank ceiling is desired and where moisture and humidity are a concern. The planks are made from PVC, a durable plastic that is unaffected by moisture and humidity. Lastly, WoodHaven planks embody the look of real wood with their deep, rich embossed grain pattern, but they’re made of MDF and come in a variety of finishes.

While you can use the company’s Ceiling Selector tool to find the best match for your particular project, here are some ideas for how to use Armstrong Ceilings’ three wood-inspired planks.
