Great Rooms with Arched & Angled Ceilings

Detailed interior structure is essential to good design. In great rooms, where families and friends gather, designers seek to create an atmosphere that’s both unique and welcoming — an angled or arched ceiling offers architectural prestige while also creating the illusion of added space. At their most impressive heights, vaulted ceilings can also capitalize on unnecessary attics, transforming areas that would have been largely designated for storage into visible displays of structural integrity. In these great rooms, designers and architects chose vaulted ceilings, along with other architectural elements including rafters, beams, and paneling, to achieve captivating, high-design living spaces.
