Cathedral Ceiling Design Ideas

Cathedral ceilings create impressive spaces, but they also pose design challenges. Explore these cathedral ceiling design ideas to bring a striking, unified look to your room.

Cathedral Ceiling Design Ideas

Cathedral ceilings add interest and character to a room. Conventional white cathedral ceilings accentuate the spaciousness, but do little to contribute to the overall design scheme. The decorating ideas below offer attractive alternatives to the “boring” white cathedral ceiling and complete the décor of the space.

Wood Ceiling Looks

If you’ve ever visited a ski lodge or a resort hotel with wood beam construction, you’ve probably found them to be warm and inviting even under stratospheric ceilings. Warm colors, especially wood and earth tones, tend to reduce the perceived height of a ceiling. You can introduce that same look with Woodhaven ceiling planks from Armstrong.  WoodHaven Rustic Pine offers a medium light shade of well-defined wood visual with heavy graining and authentic knots. When the room décor calls for the dark, luxurious look of walnut, WoodHaven Walnut ceiling planks can deliver the striking statement you want for your ceiling.

Rustic Ceiling Looks

If you prefer the country look, beadboard panels are a great cathedral ceiling design idea. Woodhaven Beadboard has the beveled tongue and groove detail of traditional white beadboard. Go one step further for a more rustic look with Country Classic Ceiling planks that offer a realistic wood grain texture against pure white.

Use Color

Don’t be afraid to experiment with color high overhead. Extra easy-to-install Country Classic planks can be painted or stained to match or accent room colors.

Take your cathedral ceiling to new heights with stunning wood ceiling planks or beadboard ceiling panels that provide a beautiful finishing touch to your interior.
