Not all ceilings are flat, there are also triangular or, as they are called in the West, cathedral ceiling, that is, the cathedral ceiling. The name is logical – remember the vaulted ceilings of Catholic cathedrals. Our site will tell and clearly show you how you can beat a triangular ceiling in the interior.
We recognize that most often triangular ceilings become an attribute of the attic. There are also special houses, tents or huts, about which the portal told you in detail. And sometimes a private house is initially built with a “cathedral” ceiling, which becomes its main highlight and feature.
One of the most popular design options for a vaulted, triangular ceiling is to completely abandon its decoration. Why not? The beams themselves can look pretty. This option is especially relevant for wooden houses, where the wood on the ceiling will look very appropriate, complementing the overall picture..
If just the tree on the ceiling seems too gloomy for you, does not fit the classic interior style, paint comes to the rescue. Most often white, which will make the triangular ceiling even higher, airier, lighter.
Traditionally, triangular ceilings are symmetrical in shape. Both sides have the same slope and meet strictly in the middle of the room. Of course, there may be other options, but this one is classic. See how the pendant lights and metal cables played a big role in this high vaulted ceiling in the photo above..
Sometimes the owners decide to visually lower their triangular ceiling and make it a little smoother with decorative designs. These are triangles made of beams that simultaneously emphasize the shape of the ceiling and make it more familiar, classic.
To emphasize the unusual shape of the ceiling, you can use a fireplace with a tall and noticeable chimney..
Designers warn that the vaulted and “cathedral” ceilings, despite all the similarities, have differences. Vaults can be arched, curved, have only one slope. And triangular, as the name implies, no. However, both ceiling options are great for arranging skylights, dormers and tall windows..
Of course, stretch and traditional suspended ceilings are not used with this form, there is no point in this, because the main feature of the room will be hidden. Otherwise, the finish can be very different: plaster, drywall, lining, paneling up to the use of plastic.
