Hallway Barrel Vault Ceilings

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.

The most common place Archways & Ceilings sees barrel vault ceilings at are in the hallways. Most of our customers are looking to add a little flare to their boring long hallways. By simply adding the barrel ceiling, the hallway now has character.
