If you’ve ever walked into a home with a vaulted ceiling, then you know how gorgeous, bright, and open such a feature can make an area look. A vaulted ceiling will almost always turn an otherwise humdrum-looking interior into a stunning showplace.
With a vaulted ceiling, everyone’s attention will immediately be drawn upward when they enter your home. Your living room will become transformed and feel more spacious than you could ever imagine. You’ll be able to incorporate new windows higher up to allow more sunlight into your home, if you want, which is a fabulous bonus.
A vaulted ceiling with exposed beams produces a beautiful look in any room and will bring about a dramatic change in the overall appearance of your home. You can paint the beams a coordinating color for a modern look or leave the wood natural for a more rustic appearance.
Not all homes can support a vaulted ceiling. However, if you own a single-story house with an attic, you might be able to raise your standard living room ceiling by several feet to create an impressive result. Several items need consideration to determine if a vaulted ceiling will work in your residence, including the pitch of your roof and especially the angle of your chimney if you have one. You might also need to relocate ductwork, electrical wiring, or plumbing.
Depending on what needs to be done, vaulting a ceiling can become a bit costly, but the resulting look will make the expense worthwhile. Also, a vaulted ceiling will add significant value to your property, which will pay off should you decide to sell your house in the future.
