Vaulted ceilings were once hailed as one of the ultimate features of home luxury, but only a handful of people consider them these days. So, are they worth the investment?
Does It Give You More Space?
A vaulted ceiling does give you more space, but most of it is only an illusion. For one, it doesn’t create floor space. When built, it prevents you from adding another floor to your home. It does provide more overall room volume, albeit unusable. Despite this, it is an effective illusion that will make your home interior look bigger. Low ceilings as well as conventional ceilings painted with a dark color are the exact opposite – they make your home look cavernous and gloomy.
Does It Give You More Light?
A vaulted ceiling doesn’t just offer a light, airy feel to your room, but it can also be responsible for bringing sunlight into your home. Design-build pros often recommend adding skylights on a vaulted ceiling for better daylighting. You can do so even if you already have larger windows in your home.
Does It Waste Energy?
One of the many reasons why the vaulted ceiling is not as favorable to many homeowners as other home features because it has a reputation of being an energy-waster. If you have one large room, you’re likely to use more heating and cooling energy than recommended.
