Architecture takes on many different forms, and over time many beautiful designs have come and gone. Ceiling design has not missed-out on the wealth of changing styles, and is one of the central elements to architectural marvels. Just take the exquisite examples provided to us in some of the beautiful ancient buildings throughout Europe.
Whether you are remodeling or building, there are a few different ceiling designs for you to choose between. On existing homes the decision is somewhat limited by the structural elements of your home, but if you are building from scratch, the possibilities are open-ended.
The cathedral ceiling is one pitch that has been loved and incorporated into home design for many years now. This type of ceiling ascends upwards forming a peak at the top and can incorporate a number of different angles along the way. It can be any shape, size or height. Appropriately named, the cathedral ceiling is modeled after the grand and elegant ceilings gracing historic churches.
Cathedral ceilings can be finished in many different beautiful ways. Just take the stunning artwork created by Michael Angelo for example on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Finish yours with creative moldings, tin tiles, or any number of captivating styles. You can install drywall on your ceiling, paneling, tiles, or tongue and groove wood.
Extending the height of a ceiling works to expand a room and to create the illusion of a larger, brighter space. Bring some beauty and style to your home by trying doing something different with the architecture. Request free estimates from prescreened contractors in your area to complete your building project.
