Ceiling designs add character to new homes

Ceilings are the new floors

One of the benefits of building with Gonyea is the freedom to customize the design of your home from floor – to ceiling! Working with our architectural designers, you can incorporate coffered, beamed, and vaulted ceilings throughout your home. We’ve gathered some photos to illustrate the variety of ways ceilings can be used to add interest, style and character.

For a bit of old-world charm, wood beams are available in a variety of widths, colors and textures.

Coffered ceilings give this living room a traditional, luxurious look.

The box vault ceiling (also known as a tray ceiling) in this dining room defines the spaces and adds intimacy. The stained bead board inside the box vault ceiling is a perfect complement to the dark cabinetry.

A mix of straight lines and arches in the ceilings makes these spaces more architecturally interesting.

Zig-zag floor tile playfully balances this angled ceiling.

Tray ceilings are popular because they add dimension and interest to a room.

A vaulted ceiling can make a small room feel large, while beams (whether sheetrock or wood) help reduce ceiling height in staircases.

For an elegant first impression, the bead board ceiling in a box vault underscores the richness in the wood flooring and millwork.
