When a restaurant wants to renovate, it has special considerations. An office or a retail store might be able to get away with sectioning off part of the business to keep customers away from the work and stay open.
Restaurants usually can’t do that because of health code concerns. That means if they want to renovate, they have to close, and that downtime costs them money. Luckily, FauxWoodBeams™ can help.
Just because a restaurant needs to reopen as quickly as possible doesn’t mean they want to sacrifice great results. After all, creating the right atmosphere is a big part of the dining experience. Our fake wood beams can be used to set any kind of scene from rustic and home-y to sophisticated and elegant with every style in between.
Real wood beams are very heavy so a solid wood beam two feet wide and 42 inches long could weigh more than a thousand pounds, which means you’d need hoists or forklifts to install the beams, as well as a large crew to handle the installation. It’s also not an easy process to ensure that heavy decorative solid wood beams are installed properly.
Even then, you’re not done. Real wood requires regular maintenance, like resealing. It can even attract pests like termites and carpenter ants. If used outdoors, it can rot or warp within a few years.
Our fake wood beams don’t have any of those problems. A faux beam two feet wide and 42 inches long only weighs about 200 pounds so heavy equipment isn’t needed, and it can be installed by fewer people, saving you labor costs.
Even better, we have three-sided fake wood beams that make it easy to run wiring for lights, speakers, etc. through them. Real wood has to have channels drilled for such purposes, which can become complicated.
Even better, we even have custom faux beam sizes that can be wrapped around ugly support beams or duct work. This way you get the design style you want without interfering with the practical side.
It’s due to the flexibility, practicality and great looks of our fake wood beams that restaurants choose them over and over again. Brio Tuscan Grille has used our faux beams in several locations, including their most recent addition in Huntington Station, NY. Depending upon the location, Brio uses our Woodland or Tuscany fake beams to accent their restaurants’ welcoming atmosphere.
One restaurant created a very striking ceiling design. First they installed faux bamboo panels from our sister site, FauxPanels.com™, and then added our Sandblasted fake beams on top, creating a unique look to go with its elegant décor.
Barrique Kitchen & Wine Bar in Babylon, NY wanted to create a rustic, old world look for its tapas-inspired menu. Faux Timber beams and fake wood ceiling planks combined to create the perfect look that evokes a cozy Spanish vibe.
Sweet Tomatoes in Miami wanted to add style to the standard drop ceiling. They chose our Woodland faux beams and secured them over the existing ceiling to create an interesting angled design. The darker beams also worked perfectly with the deep coral-colored walls, creating an inviting décor.
Woodland fake beams were also the choice for All Star Burger in Bee Cave, Texas. The faux beams went well with the other wood accents and mottled brown floor while also ensuring a low maintenance future for the popular burger joint.
Mannino’s Restaurant in Smithtown, NY, used our Sandblasted beams two different ways. In the main dining room they used Sandblasted stained in a light color whereas in the bar area they used the same Sandblasted fake wood beams in a darker stain to contrast the light ceiling. Touches like that create a cohesive design.
Even Starbucks has used us. A Montreal franchise owner wanted to make its small location a bit cozier so he added our Resawn fake wood beams to accent the exposed brick wall and contrast the white ceiling. The final design definitely makes you want to linger over coffee.
One Olive Garden location wanted an eye-catching sign that evoked its hearty Italian food. Our Timber fake wood beams framed and helped to create a rustic sign that was both durable and perfectly fitting for family restaurant’s mood.
So no matter what type, style or size restaurant you have, when it comes time for a renovation or expansion, think FauxWoodBeams™ to create the perfect design quickly and cost effectively.
