In this ceiling type, the beams of the ceiling are exposed rather than covered. In a traditional style of the ceiling where the load-bearing beams are exposed in the inside of the house, the beams create an interesting depth and contrast to the ceiling. Beamed ceilings can take on all kinds of looks.
If you are looking for elegance, a coffered ceiling is an excellent design choice. Coffered ceilings are similar to a beamed ceiling, but use crown molding creating a waffle-like pattern made up of a grid of sunken panels accented by the molding. It’s a classic ceiling style that is usually found in luxury and high-end homes.
Groin Vault Ceiling
One of the most dramatic and spectacular ceiling designs is the intricate groin vault ceiling which is a series of partial domes and arches creating an elevated ceiling. Sometimes known as a double barrel vault or cross vault, this ceiling type is produced by the intersection at right angles of two barrel vaults. The word “groin” refers to the edge between the intersecting vaults.
