Home design can be as diverse as people; everyone has a style or specific look that they love and want to create in their abode. One of the ways homes can stand apart from each other is through their architectural differences. Different roof pitches and ceiling designs are just one way to make your home unique to you.
The value of vaulted ceilings.
Adding height in any manner is almost always a good move. Vaulted ceilings create the illusion of a larger space, and add more light at the same time. There are a few different types of vaulted ceilings you can choose between. We’ve already covered the cathedral, standard vault, and tray ceiling; now we will take a closer look at the cove ceiling.
The defining characteristics of the cove ceiling.
The cove design is characterized by its smooth, concave curves. The ceiling curves upward in a similar shape to a spoon. A cove ceiling can be high and dramatic or just a little higher than the other ceilings within the house. One positive aspect of the coved ceiling is that it can be used even if there is a second story or not a lot of room with the existing roof pitch.
How to make your cove ceiling an eye-catching asset.
Because of their unique rounded nature, cove ceilings take special skill in finishing. They look great finished in drywall with texture or special faux finishes. Utilize special lighting techniques to really set-off your coved ceiling. Recessed lights are one such example. Tongue and groove, tin tiles, or wood paneling can also be used. It is crucial to have a skilled professional install and finish the cove ceiling to ensure an attractive appearance.
