Enhance Your Kitchen Design With Creative Ceilings
Give your kitchen ceiling design curves in all the right places
Okay, so you ordered the best custom-made cabinetry and a rare cut of marble for your counter tops. Given the right budget, that’s what everyone does. You’ll have a beautiful kitchen, but it won’t make your guests’ jaws drop. They might comment on a nicely designed kitchen, but they won’t say “Wow!” If you really want to create an awe-inspiring look, pay close attention to your kitchen ceilings. In the following gallery, you’ll see how transformative the right ceiling can be. It can take a room from nice to extraordinary like nothing else can.
You want to create a kitchen that makes even your standard house guests want to put down an offer every time they visit. Sure, you can start with smart cabinet design, high-end appliances and an open floor plan. If you do those things right, they’ll get you a great kitchen. But you don’t want a great kitchen, do you? When you’re done, your kitchen design plans should create the pièce de résistance that leaves you on the winning end of an aggressive bidding war. How can you do this? Get creative with curves.
If you need some inspiration, just take a look at some of the designs our master builders have recently completed.
Kitchen Groin Vault Ceiling
Do you want to cook with some zest? or do you simply want a conversation starter? Well, the groin vault kit is perfect for any kitchen. With a little preparation and planning you can add this beautiful ceiling to your home. Archways & Ceilings is always cooking up great ideas that will keep you and your guests from not only talking about the food but the beautiful ceiling above!
This kitchen design draws you in with the inviting curves of an arched entryway and then knocks your socks off with its centerpiece: an artfully designed groin vault. You’ll notice that every opening to this room is flanked by an arch. Two of those archways are accented with recessed lighting to help the homeowner make the best use out of each workspace – a perfect marriage of beauty and functionality.
Kitchen Barrel Vault Ceiling
One of the coolest applications of a barrel ceiling has to be found in the kitchen Archways & Ceilings supplied to a customer. This particular customer was looking to create a unique architectural element so they decided to create a series of barrel vaults that would be framed on top of old beams. The barrel vaults simply sat on top of these beams and later was drywalled and then covered in brick. The combination of old world beams, multiple barrel ceilings and brick created in our opinion the coolest barrel ceiling for a kitchen.
Yes, barrel vaults are the simplest type of vaulted ceiling. But that doesn’t mean they can’t get a little fancy in your kitchen design. Take this kitchen, for example. The simplistic barrel vault is repeated over and over and covered in stone to create a one-of-a-kind look that will add interest and value to any home.
Dome Ceiling Above A Kitchen Island
Domes are a popular addition to kitchen ceilings because they can be used to highlight an important area, such as an island. Since people tend to gather in this area anyway, it’s definitely a good idea to give it a little extra attention when you’re designing the space. This dome is accented with a light ring and a chandelier, which is definitely recommended for this spot. Although this is a traditionally-styled kitchen, a dome can work well in almost any environment. Dome ceilings are popular additions to Tuscan homes and are widely used in modern architecture.
If you’re limited on space or just looking for a more classic look, a dome ceiling above a kitchen island is a great kitchen design trick to have up your sleeve. As you can see from the kitchen designs below, you can dress up the dome with light fixtures, molding and creative painting techniques to make your domed ceiling a unique work of art.
Don't Forget About The Kitchen Ceiling
It’s no secret that the kitchen is a major area of focus for new home buyers. They’re willing to spend a little more on a home with a stellar kitchen, but they’re also willing to turn their backs on an otherwise perfect home if the kitchen isn’t just right. So, when you’re planning your kitchen design, you want to make it extraordinary.
