Default Living room finish with cathedral ceiling ideas ?

Trying to design my living/ kitchen without taking out a second mortgage!
Please post some pics of your spread.
Looking for farm - rustic style open concept.
I have multiple shoulder mounts so need something to help them blend in.
I can’t afford all wood ceilings at this time, so need other options.
Thanks in advance,
Your friend “D”

Don't give up on wood if you want it. I could not afford regular wood ceilings and then my builder came up with this. It is the inexpensive bead board that is used on porches and things. We simply put it on upside down, then stained and varnished it. It saved a ton of money and looks great.

Looks fantastic! Of course those exposed beams in the other pic are awesome too!

You can make fake beams out of 1x4 or 1x6 cedar. Here is a side picture of how a lot of trim carpenters are building them now.

This is my plan of approach !
Going to make faux beams, looking for just the right view design.
Thanks for all so far.
More examples please.

These beams and the mantle are boxed from “slices” of old timbers. The carpenter would mix wood glue with the sawdust to fill the mitre joints. Great trick of the trade!

We had access to an old barn roof here in Iowa for free. The owner wanted us to take it down which was fine with us. We decided to go with new material. We didn't want to deal with the mess....sorting thru all the pieces to get what we needed. Clean up on each piece etc. We used new tin in the living room, kitchen and in my bathroom. We used some left over material for the backsplash at the oven and behind the range hood.

I put a couple of faux beams running lengthwise in my great room of 14’ ceiling
I didn’t want the room chopped into smaller sections by perpendicular beams
