Stately Romanesque Ceiling Systems Are Within Reach

Our easy-to-install ceiling systems provide you with a level of luxury that was previously out of reach.

If you’ve ever visited a medieval palace or an 18th century gothic church, you understand how impactful a highly-designed ceiling can be. From the barrel vaults of the Sistine Chapel to the Romanesque semi-circular groin vaults of Speyer Cathedral, ceilings across the globe have gone down in history as works of art.But, why does such an architectural masterpiece have to be refined to the ceilings of churches and museums? Archways and Ceilings Made Easy makes it possible for you to marvel at the beauty of medieval-inspired architecture every day – in your very own home. Our easy-to-install ceiling systems provide you with a level of luxury that was previously out of reach.

So, now that you know you can probably afford to break out of the box that binds most ordinary homes, let’s look at some options for making your space extraordinary.

Groin Vault Ceiling Systems

Groin vaults are arguably the most impactful architectural addition that you can make to your ceilings. They are often used for a splash of panache in a foyer, dining room, master bedroom or kitchen. Although the result looks like it would have taken months to install, our groin vault ceiling systems can be in place within days or weeks (depending on the project and skill level of the installer).

Barrel Vault Ceiling Systems

A barrel vault ceiling is ideal for those who find beauty in the simple things that life has to offer. Its simplicity is exactly what makes this arch alluring. It just consists of one arch that is repeated on the same radius over and over again. The simple beauty of a barrel ceiling can be appreciated whether the angles are soft or more pronounced. It’s up to you to choose which one is right for your home. Fantasizing about where to install your barrel ceiling? Well, many of our customers choose an entryway, media room or dining room – but for you, the sky is the limit.

Dome Ceiling Systems

If a groin vault ceiling has any competition for the “most impactful” award, it would be the dome ceiling. Picture it as a hollow upper half of a sphere that is nestled into your ceiling. And, much like with barrel ceilings, you have a choice. You can opt for a soft dome or a more pronounced half circle. Domed ceilings are popular for elegant master bathrooms and refined studies.

Cove Ceiling Systems

Unlike the other ceiling systems, the cove ceiling gives you the ability to keep a flat surface while softening the edges of a room. It’s kind of like crown molding that curves up and becomes part of the ceiling. Cove ceiling systems are the most affordable ceiling kit option, but they still add an unexpected artistic flair to the room, while eliminating those dreadful corners.

Now that you’ve had a chance to see some style inspirations and learn a bit more about our ceiling kit options, you’re probably picturing where to put your first arch. We just have one more word of advice: You don’t have to choose one style and one location. You can use a domed ceiling kit for the master bathroom, a groined kit for the entryway and a coved ceiling for the guest rooms. Use your imagination to create an architectural masterpiece of your own.
