Add Visual Space with a Two-Story Great Room

Make a statement in your great room with a two-story, cathedral or vaulted ceiling. Modern homeowners are looking to build smaller and more thoughtful homes. By eliminating redundant rooms, like a breakfast nook and a formal dining room, you can reduce square footage while still maintaining the function that you need in your house. One way to make a smaller home plan feel larger is a two-story great room. Simple house plans with a vaulted ceiling in the great room will appear larger and airier. Elevated ceiling also allow space for large windows that will bring natural light into your living spaces. Two-story homeplans with a cathedral or vaulted ceiling may have a balcony or loft on the second floor that overlooks the great room and adds dimension.

Add Character to your Two-Story Great Room

There are many ways to decorate your cathedral or vaulted ceiling to add character to your great room. Decorative beams can be a simple addition to give your home rustic charm or you can create a more elaborate design. Your fireplace can become a statement piece with stone work extending from the base to the top of the cathedral or vaulted ceiling.
