Types of Ceilings - Popular New Home Ceiling Treatments

What ceiling design trends can make your custom home stand out? Check out this quick guide to ceiling treatment options.

Conventional Ceiling

Usually 8 feet high, conventional ceilings may be either flat (look just like the walls) or textured, most often called "popcorn ceilings" (sprayed with particles that look like painted popcorn kernels).

A "smooth ceiling" is flat. If your contract doesn't mention smooth ceilings, ask what kind of ceiling is included.

In a custom home, the first floor ceilings are often extended to 9 feet in height.

Homes at the upper end may even have 10, 11 or 12 ft high ceilings. A ceiling over 9 feet tall can add greatly to cost, as most standard building materials come in shorter lengths, and more support may be needed for a taller ceiling.

If your builder doesn't offer 9 feet as a standard first floor ceiling height, expect to pay $3000-$9000 to increase the height, depending on the size of the home.

Moulding


Conventional mouldings are one piece, one or two inch, pieces of trimwork that cover the edges where the wall sheetrock touches ceilings.

In custom homes, mouldings can be wider, with two, three or four pieces stacked on top of each other for a more elaborate effect.

The trey ceiling to the left has several layers of crown molding, which help define the stepped trey and add to the details.

Cathedral Ceilings



A cathedral ceiling provides a high sloping line up to the top of the house.

In this Raleigh custom home, the cathedral ceiling extends up from the living room fireplace wall to the second floor loft area.

Vaulted Ceilings


A vaulted ceiling extends a room upward. Both provide a spacious feeling and make rooms feel larger.

More often found in first floor living or family rooms, they are also being employed in dining rooms, master bedrooms and master baths.

This master bath demonstrates one of many styles of vaulted ceilings. It adds spaciousness to a room that is both functional and luxurious.

Vaulted ceilings in the master bath are becoming quite common, particularly in custom homes.

Main floor master suite homes also are more likely to have vaulted ceilings, as the second floor is generally smaller, which means that more first floor rooms are likely to have a roof directly over them instead of another room.
