Creative Dining Room Ceiling Ideas

The dining room is one of the most popular rooms in the home. This room is not only a place to have dinner with your family and friends, but also a place to celebrate special moments, play games on a festive evening, and even help your kids with their homework. Because the dining room is so important, it's not surprising that many homeowners spend a lot of time designing the interior of the dining room. 

While choosing the right paint colors and selecting the best flooring are incredibly important, don't forget about the dining room ceilings! Because the ceiling in the dining room is often a focal point, it's critical to design a dining room ceiling that will be both stylish and comfortable. Take a look at the examples below of how you can easily create a beautiful and inviting dining room ceiling with one of Archways & Ceilings prefabricated ceiling kits. 

DINING ROOM BARREL CEILING

Often when you think of a barrel vault you picture half of a circle. When barrel ceilings are that curved they create more of a dramatic impression in a home. Barrel Vaults do not have to be so dramatic all the time. We recently had a customer ask for a less dramatic feature so we suggested to create a soft rise barrel. A barrel vault with a soft rise is subtle but elegant. The barrel ceiling will deliver that architectural detail and not overwhelm the room. Take a look below, the tile he added also brings a unique quality to the room.

A DINING ROOM GROIN VAULT

If you are looking for a great architectural detail for a dining room, then a groin vault from Archways and Ceilings Made Easy is a great way to achieve this beautiful feature. A groin vault can easily be added to most dining rooms because they are generally square or rectangle in shape. The groin vault will have you eating dinner in awe!

ELONGATED DOMED CEILING FOR THE DINING ROOM

Elongated dome ceilings are just like classic dome ceilings, except for they've been stretched across the room. Because of the elongated style, they're the perfect ceiling for oblong or rectangular dining rooms to give them more of a balanced feel. Elongated domes are easy to install and drywall, the hardest part is deciding what kind of finish you want to use. Finish it with a mural, faux finish, or interior lighting. Or just leave it as-is for a subtle, elegant look. Add a chandelier to really knock it out of the park!

COVE CEILINGS FOR A SUBTLE YET CREATIVE DINING ROOM CEILING

Cove ceilings offer a simpler design detail when compared to some of our more complex vaults and ceilings, but the power is in its simplicity. A subtle rounding effect from the wall to ceiling can have an amazing impact on your dining room. If you're not looking for a tall ceiling filled with ornate curvature, but still want something stylish, then the cove ceiling could be your answer. Get creative with the finishes and lighting, and you can have an incredibly creative dining room ceiling.
