Better Home Ceilings

Have you heard about our home ceilings mission? Join us!

This week, we’re on a mission, and we’re hoping you could help. Our goal is to inspire homeowners, builders and designers across the country to create better home ceilings. Much like us, you’re probably tired of seeing the standard straight-sided room with the occasional skylight added for interest.

What a snooze-fest. Apparently, not enough people know how easy and inexpensive it can be to add better ceilings and improve the value and aesthetic appeal of the home. So, let’s change some minds.

Check out these better home ceilings and spread the word. Together, we can change the world (or at least a few homes).

A Stunning Ceiling for a Regal Master Bath Room

If you want to instantly boost the importance of a room, add a groin vault. It’s that simple. There’s nothing fancy about this one; it’s your everyday run-of-the-mill groin vault, but it makes a huge statement. Is it boring? Heck, no. All home ceilings should be this lucky.

Combine Ceiling Types for the Greatest Impact

The most spectacular homes we’ve ever visited (and had a hand in building) are the ones that artfully combine different types of ceilings. It just goes to show that home ceilings don’t all have to be the same. Check out this space and you’ll notice the coffered ceiling first, but look a little longer and you see the groin vaults that line the hallway. There is some impressive workmanship here and it shows.

An Unusual Ceiling for a Special Space

As you can see from this design, we’re working with a small space, but that doesn’t mean it can’t stand out from the rest of the room. The light simply bounces off of this copper-lined barrel ceiling, giving the illusion of more space than what is actually there. You see, home ceilings can be extremely diverse.

So, in a nutshell, that sums up our mission. We hope these unique and interesting home ceilings have inspired you to join us. If so, all you have to do is share this post with everyone you know (and some people you don’t. Why not?). And, when it’s time to design a home for yourself, keep this gallery in mind. You don’t have to replicate any of these home ceilings, but you can use them as inspiration to come up with a design that is uniquely your own.
