Different Ceiling Styles To Select For Your Dream Home

Ceiling Styles To Select For Your Dream Home

When building a house, it’s easy to get caught up in choosing the flooring, countertops and floor plan. Yet there’s one detail that can make or break a house design, and that is the ceiling style. Without attention to the ceiling, it simply serves a functional purpose. With a little creativity, the ceiling can be a focal point or a part of the home that unites its overall look. Here are some inspiring ceiling design options that can make your home special.

RENDERING TO REALITY – RIVERBEND PLAN 225

The Riverbend 225 is under construction in Long Island, VA!

Welcome to our Rendering to Reality series where we follow the construction of our home plans from breaking ground to move-in ready! In this series, you will get the opportunity to see the building process and experience the anticipation and excitement of home building. Check back frequently as we introduce new installments and updates.

Builder Ben Miller of Miller Homes, Inc is currently constructing the Riverbend house plan 225. See the early construction phases below!

Rendering to Reality of The Riverbend house plan 225.

A double gabled roof with front and rear Palladian windows give this wraparound porch house plan a stately elegance. Vaulted ceilings in the two-story foyer and great room reinforce the visual drama of the Palladian windows, while a loft/study overlooks both areas. The covered front porch and outstanding rear deck expand living space to the outdoors. The spacious first floor master suite accesses the large sun room from a luxurious master bath with garden tub, shower, and double vanity. Upstairs in this floor plan, the largest of the three bedrooms serves as a second master suite with a private bath and walk-in closet.
