Wood ceiling

I would like to put a wooden ceiling in my kitchen and bath. I want something thin as not to take to much from my already low ceilings. I want to be able to paint them white

    So why not attach the premaid wainscoting or bead board? It's thin and primed. Although I would not recommend for a super large area because it won't pull off the look you are hoping for. Otherwise go to a home center store and check out there flooring section if you think about it ,it's the same thing,except that you need the thinnest you so at least you could compare them. Take size of room and photos as well and ask them. I love pine ceilings.

    Faux paint or buy wallpaper; in humid areas, wood, especially thin, is not a good idea.

    If the ceiling feels low now, adding wood (in any form) might make it feel even lower. Be prepared.

    My husband put tongue and groove ceiling in our kitchen, but the ceiling is not particularly low. This is our porch but same ceiling, kitchen ceiling is white. We also used "fake" bead board in attic which is thinner Is there any way you could remove what is the ceiling now and put the new ceiling in higher? What is above your present kitchen and bath? Another floor of rooms or the attic? If the present ceiling is dry wall that would be about the same depth as bead board so height would remain the same if you took that down.

    I think white tongue and groove looks amazing, adds texture without closing the ceiling in.
