Master Bathroom Barrel Vault Ceilings

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

Barrel ceilings are an excellent place for any master bathroom. The barrel vault can either span the whole width of the room or it can be boxed out to a smaller width in the center of the room. Both applications create a different look and feel. Take a look below at a barrel vault ceiling spanning the entire master bathroom and one that was placed in a boxed in setting.

Kitchen Barrel Ceiling

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

One of the coolest applicatons of a barrel ceiling has to be found in the kitchen Archways & Ceilings supplied to a customer. This particular customer was looking to create a unique architectural element so they decided to create a series of barrel vaults that would be framed on top of old beams. The barrel vaults simply sat on top of these beams and later was drywalled and then coverd in brick. The combination of old world beams, multiple barrel ceilings and brick created in our opinion the coolest barrel ceiling for a kitchen.

Hallway Barrel Vault Ceilings

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

Barrel Vault Ceilings are extremely popular because they can be added to almost any room. The rise of a barrel can be adjusted to create a half circle, elliptical or a soft appearance. What does this mean? Well, basically you can adjust the overall height of the barrel to fit your room. For example, if you have low ceilings then you would create a soft barrel ceiling. If you had high ceilings and were looking to make an impression then you would create a half circle barrel vault. If you had a tricky situation where the roof rafters were impeading in on your ceiling then you may need to create an elliptical barrel vault to help curve under the rafters and maximize your height.
