Ceiling Remodeling: A Groin Vault

Looking to give your home an update or a new look? Well look no further. One of the most affordable ways to give your home an architectural update without breaking the bank is to use a Ceiling Kit from Archways and Ceilings Made Easy. One advantage in using our customized ceiling kits (i.e. Groin Vaults, Barrel Vaults, Domes and Cove Ceilings) is that they can be easily installed under the current ceiling without having to rip out the current drywall. The hardest part is figuring which ceiling to go with.

For example, I had a customer out in Keller, Texas do just that. This young couple recently bought a 20 year old home which had many flat & boring ceilings. They were looking to add a little flare to their dining room without having to spend a lot to achieve it. They went on-line and began looking for different types of ceilings or decorative ideas when they found Archways & Ceilings on the Web. One of the homeowners mentioned a light came on above their head and they instantly found what they were looking for. They fell in love with a Groin Vault. (Click here for the definition of a groin vault) With a few clicks of the mouse they were able to find pictures and a price for their groin vault remodel right there on our website. They then took the next step and ordered and Archways & Ceilings shipped them the groin vault along with several other archways they also ordered to help update the square openings in their home.

The Ceiling Remodel for the Groin Vault broken down into 6 Simple steps:

Step #1 The customers framed a cross brace out of 2x6’s and secured it to the original drywalled ceiling.

.Step #2 They assembled the groin vault by attaching it to the cross brace. The Groin Vault comes with a colorful detailed instruction page along with a CAD to help beginners as well as veterans install the groin vault.

Step #3 Step Back and Admire the Groin Vault Ceiling.


Step #4 Hired a local drywall company and drywalled the groin vault with ½” thick drywall.


Step #6 The Local Drywall Company taped & mudded the groin vault ceiling and later applied a texture to the ceiling.

That’s it! All they need to do now is agree on what color of paint they plan on using. Now that can be the hardest part of the whole project. .
