Types of Ceiling!!

Did you know there are many types of ceilings? Some you may know, others may not be familiar to you. Either way, you have a choice. Every kind of ceiling will give your space a unique look. Each ceiling offers different characteristics.

Here are some just some of the ceiling to chose from:

Exposed Beam Ceiling– This style gives the space a more rustic feel. It can also be exposed to metal beams. 
Tray Ceilings– Cut-out design. The mid-way of the ceiling is cut out. There can be lights around the perimeter, or in the center, or both!!
Vaulted/Shed/Cathedral Ceiling – They are all very similar. They form the shape of the roof. Sometimes the ceiling can be slanted, as opposed to meeting in the center of the room.

Coffered Ceilings– Repeat sunken square or rectangular pattern. This is one of my favorite type of ceiling.
Domed Ceiling– Mimics circular dome. Usually found in high-end homes. Can be very expensive to build.
Suspended Ceiling –  Used mostly in commercial buildings. They have dropped ceiling and can be used to hide pipes.

Cove ceiling– Elevates gradually. Meets with a flat center.

Barrel Vault Ceiling – Upward arch. The entire length of the room, like a barrel cut in half.
As you can see, there are many types of ceiling!! Hard to choose? You betcha!! If you have the choice of doing something different, then go for it. After all, it’s up to you.
