Special Ceiling Treatments

Building your own home gives you the power to customize many features. From the flooring you choose to the countertops you install, this level of customization is only available when you build. One place where you might not realize you can customize is with your home's ceilings. Donald A. Gardner Architects has a number of home plans that include customized or unique ceiling options.
In past architectural styles, most ceilings had some sort of artwork, whether simple crown molding or a complex pattern of tiles and trusses. Today, many homes lack this element. Yet for some, a desire to have a home that goes above and beyond drives them to seek homes with custom ceilings. Custom ceiling treatments add interest and make the ceiling more than just a functional element in a home. With the right treatment, your ceiling can be a focal point.

Types of Ceiling Treatments

Types of ceiling treatments depend largely on the type of ceiling and the aesthetic goals. Sometimes, the goal is to add interest to a flat, characterless ceiling, especially in rooms with high ceilings. Ceiling treatments for high ceilings may include beams and artwork that enhance the space. Adding hardwood, tile or trusses to a flat ceiling is another way to create this type of visual appeal. In some cases, the ceiling treatment is designed to work with the shape of the roofline. Vaulted ceiling treatments give the home the feeling of more space as the ceilings form to the line of the roof, rather than presenting a flat surface across the top of the home. Barrel ceilings have curved lines that make the home feel like a historic property. Some homes may feature a combination of structural and aesthetic elements to make the ceiling the focal point of the room.

Benefits of Unique Ceiling Treatments

By considering different types of ceiling treatments for your home, you need to understand the potential benefits. Investing in a unique ceiling will help your family get greater enjoyment out of your home while you live there, while also increasing the home's value down the road. Ceiling treatments for high ceilings help enliven a space that would otherwise be bland, ultimately providing additional character to your home.
