Looking for interior design inspiration for your new luxury home? Sometimes, it makes sense to look up. 

Your home’s ceiling provides an opportunity for immediate impact on the ambiance of your living space. In the right room, creative ceiling designs can elevate your décor and infuse the space with added personality and flair. From striking patterns to stunning textures, here are six ceiling types showcased in Toll Brothers model homes across the country that are guaranteed to enhance the look and feel of your home.

1. Boxed Beam Ceiling

Rustic and eye-catching, boxed beams create a sense of height and add a level of detail that make spaces feel more expansive. One benefit of this ceiling design is the number of options homeowners have for their beam material, from rough-hewn wood for a more casual feel to painted wood for added elegance.


2. Coffered Ceiling

Beautifully designed and intricate, coffered ceilings provide an opportunity to customize a space with an elegant combination of beams and crown molding. Usually taking the form of square or rectangular patterns, this type of ceiling is visually stunning and adds a sense of depth to your living space.


3. Two-Story Ceiling

We have two words for the distinctive architectural impact of a two-story ceiling: grand and gorgeous. The ideal complement to open floor plan living, this impressive ceiling type is often designed with the second floor overlooking a first-floor gathering space. 


4. Tray Ceiling

Resembling a tray, this design includes a quick succession of varying heights that recede upward into your ceiling. Embellishments including multiple levels, decorative moldings, and ambient lighting can be added to create a more dramatic effect.


5. Cathedral Ceiling

Categorized as a vaulted ceiling, this type greatly expands the proportions of a room using two symmetrically. Also referred to as a vaulted ceiling, this ceiling design dramatically expands the proportions of a room using two symmetrically sloped sides and optional exposed trusses. In addition to its visual appeal, cathedral ceilings have an extremely versatile look that can work in just about any design ranging from traditional to contemporary.


6. Shed Ceiling

Another form of vaulted ceilings, this design is best utilized in a space with a lot of windows to maximize the impact of natural lighting. With a sloped design, shed ceilings feel uniquely intimate at the lower portion of the ceiling and grand at the higher portion.
