Ceiling styles

Conventional ceiling

The advantage on this kind of ceiling is that it is very easy to build, because of it’s simplicity. If you want a ceiling 10 feet of the ground it will certainly make the room bigger, but on the other hand, the costs will grow, as you will need special materials.

Suspended ceilings

Actually, the suspended ceiling is fixed under another ceiling.

It’s formed of metal grid work and lightweight ceiling panels. These types of ceilings are great to hide old and cracked ceilings, wiring or joists. They are great if you want to give a new shape to the ceiling.

Cathedral ceiling

This type of ceiling is actually attached directly to the roof trusses and goes all the way to the top of the house. It ads a lot of space to the room.

There are some problems that can appear to this type of ceiling. First of all is the insulation. There should be a space between the roof and the insulation material, to allow proper ventilation. Another problem is the heating and cooling of the room. As the bigger gets bigger, it will be harder to heat.

Shed ceiling

The shed ceiling is very similar to a cathedral ceiling, but the angle is not as steep. It’s mostly build under an attic to allow proper insulation and ventilation.

Vaulted, Tray and Cove ceilings

All these types of ceilings provide a transition between the walls and the classic ceiling. They add a height feeling to the room.

Vaulted ceilings angle or arch up from the walls to the ceiling to provide a high, spacious feeling.

Tray ceilings. The ceiling line looks like a tray turned upside down. Also, they usually have square edges.

Cove ceilings have a rounded concave surface joining the walls and the flat ceiling.
