Although self building is the perfect time to weave vaulted ceiling ideas into your home design, this is not the only opportunity to incorporate them. Anyone thinking about ceiling ideas for an extension and those carrying out conversions to barns, former industrial buildings or in their own lofts can all create vaulted ceilings. 

While we tend to be more accustomed to flat ceilings in our homes, with some forward planning, vaulted ceilings can add so much interest and volume to any interior — plus they can inject wow factor to double and single-storey spaces alike.
