I love all things French! When I think about a French country kitchen, wood beams top the list. I have been wanting to add a faux beam to the bulkhead in my kitchen.

I’ve been searching for some kitchen beam inspiration and came across some great blogs to find it.

Should I add a faux beam over this kitchen bulkhead?

This is the part I want to make look like a beam.

Not the large bulkhead but this tiny one. It’s actually part of the wall.

When my tiler was here, I even wrote in pencil ‘no tiling here, I’m putting wood here’.

That pencil marking is still there!

I think a faux wood beam would look amazing. I’m thinking of staining some thin plywood or MDF and gluing it down.

I don’t want something really heavy because it’s not really a beam.

  1. There is a product called Stikwood that I bet you could use to make it look like wood. It comes in different finishes, and you basically “peel and stick” it on. Laminate flooring would also be extremely light and give you the look of wood up there.
