There are so many great benefits you can gain when you choose to construct a custom built home. One of these benefits is that you get the freedom to personalize almost each and every part of your home – from the exterior walls down to the floor tile.
Among the parts of your home that you get to design is the ceiling. The ceiling can greatly affect the overall ambiance and elegance of your home. There are some types of the ceiling that can immediately make your home look more spacious than in actually is, and there are types that can add an instant ‘spectacular’ impression to your house.
There are numerous types of ceilings you can choose from, such as:
Conventional ceiling – Conventional ceilings are the traditional ceilings usually found in residential areas. These ceilings are mostly just flat – but it can go with virtually any home design and never goes out of style. Some people make their conventional ceilings higher than usual to make the room appear larger.
Tray ceiling – As the name implies, a tray ceiling looks somewhat like a large tray with a sunken or pushed in portion. The edges of a tray ceiling are pushed out. Tray ceilings are commonly built for certain areas of the home like a living room, a dining area, or even kitchens.
Coffered ceiling – A coffered ceiling is a ceiling that looks like a grid or a waffle because of multiple sunken rectangular or square parts. This type of ceiling can be very sturdy and can be used on ceilings for a large space such as almost an entire story of a house.
Beam ceilings – Beam (or beamed) ceilings are ceilings with exposed beams. These beams add a stylish, rustic spice to any room that some homeowners actually use faux beams in their homes just to achieve the look of a beamed ceiling. However, beam ceilings are best used for areas with large spaces or high ceilings.
