Groin Vault Ceiling Systems Made to Your Measurements. Choose from several vaulted ceiling ideas found in our picture gallery below along with several more ideas on our blog.
A groin vault is formed by two barrel vaults intersecting at right angles. The result is four curving surfaces that draw the eye up and toward the center. The areas where the barrel vaults come together create ribs that add both strength and visual appeal. Depending on how it is finished, a groin vault can look subdued or quite ornate.
Tip: How to input measurements
You don't have to look far to find groin vaulted ceiling ideas. Though not as popular as the barrel ceiling, the groin ceiling has been an architectural staple for thousands of years. Because the curving ribs draw the eye up and to the center, it creates a sense of height and openness. It's a great option for setting off an area, such as a dining room, in an open floor plan. The central keystone is also the perfect place to hang a lamp or chandelier. Multiple groin ceilings can even add texture and dimension to a boring hallway. There is no limit to how much style a groin vaulted ceiling can bring to a room. Visit our design gallery to find even more ways to transform a space from boring to extraordinary.
