A vault is an arched form extruded into the third dimension that is used to provide a space with a ceiling or roof.

In this time, I would like to share some buildings with vaulted ceilings. For you who think a choice of having it or not, here are some pros and cons with examples that may help you. Check it out!

A vaulted ceiling in a room usually goes with windows or skylight. They can give your space so much natural light. That is a great advantage. Add double glazing the surrounding glass to reduce energy requirements for heating or cooling.

They will give a cozy and rustic feel, and of course a character. Even it is just a simple space, space will be highlighted. Vaulted ceilings with beams will give energy to the room’s design and look.
