Cathedral, Vaulted, Coffered . . . Decorative ceilings add style and volume to any space!
Here’s a brief photo-guide to some common types of decorative ceilings. From simple cathedrals to unique custom creations, learn more about the different options and find the style that’s right for you!
Cathedral: A ceiling that symmetrically projects upward in an inverted “V” shape.
Vaulted: A ceiling which springs from a lower wall up to a higher wall. Includes Cathedral ceilings.
Tray: Constructed with four or more sides angling upward to a higher, flat ceiling. This style resembles an upside-down tray and is commonly seen in breakfast areas, dining rooms and bedrooms.
Stepped: A series of trays, one inside the other, at different planes.
Coffered: Showcasing recessed paneling, typically in rectangular or square configurations. Most common in formal rooms of a floor plan.
Barrel Vaulted: A simple, continuous vault, typically arched or tunnel-shaped.
Custom: What was drawn as a standard tray or cathedral ceiling can be redesigned with unique, artistic elements to create a one-of-a-kind ceiling.
