Different Types of Ceilings:
As custom luxury home builders in Arizona, every home that we build has unique elements that are specific to the estate. While building custom luxury homes, each room is personalized to clients’ dream home visions. When you walk into a room, what is the first thing that you do? You either look around at your surroundings or look up at the ceiling if something catches your eye. A ceiling can tell the story of the room and determine the overall feel. There are multiple different ceiling types to choose from while designing your luxury custom home, and no two rooms have to be the same! Below are some of the frequent ceiling designs we see.
One common type of ceiling that we design and build is a vaulted ceiling. A vaulted ceiling is an umbrella term, however, it is any ceiling that is elevated. Another common ceiling design is a coffered ceiling with a combination of crown molding and a beamed ceiling to create an elegant design. Most often the ceiling is a rectangular or square formation/pattern that is aesthetically appealing and adds depth to the ceiling. One great benefit of coffered ceilings is they absorb excess sound in a room. Pictured below is the Royal Chateau home office featuring a coffered ceiling to minimize the noise from work calls.
Furthermore, ceiling types also depend on the style of your home. With a more modern home, open-concept floor plans are extremely common and to section off the rooms within a larger floor plan, tray ceilings are used. The term tray is because the ceiling looks like an upside-down tray! Tray ceiling designs make your ceiling look taller as well. Pictured below is the Modernized Chic Estate with a tray ceiling:
One of the most common and popular ceilings we design and build as custom home builders is a beamed ceiling. Beamed ceilings can be incorporated into both vaulted ceilings and tray ceilings as well. Traditionally, beams are wooden, however, steel is also often used to give an industrial feel to the room. Aesthetically beams can be colorful, unite different textures of a ceiling, and can have a decorative detail. Pictured below is the French Villa with exposed wood beams and custom ironwork.
Lastly, the barrel vault ceiling is often used as a decorative ceiling to soften the look of a room from sharp line and edge ceilings, such as a tray ceiling. A barrel ceiling consists of a series of arches to create the barrel look. Such as one of our luxury home kitchens below! Materials for barrel vault ceilings depend on the style of the home however brick, stone, concrete, and wood often are used.
