15 Bedrooms With Cathedral and Vaulted Ceilings

Most bedrooms have simple ceilings but there are also some that are intricately decorated. The design will depend on the kind of motif or style of the bedroom. But there are also bedrooms that apply a particular type of ceiling like a cathedral ceiling and a vaulted ceiling. If you think, the two are just the same, you are wrong because there is a difference between them. While both makes a bedroom look bigger, the two differ on the design.

A cathedral ceiling is two equal, sloping sides that are parallel to the pitch of the roof where the two sides slope and meet at a ridge that runs across the length of the room. A vaulted ceiling does not have two equal, sloping sides that are parallel to the roof’s pitch. Now that you know the difference of the two, let us take a look at some bedrooms that were designed with these kinds of ceilings. Aside from the ceiling, take a look at the design of the bedrooms too.
