You cannot have tray ceilings without steps in them. Steps are the two or more layers in this ceiling which are built in the upward direction as the ceilings are above the original ceiling. When you decide to make a ceiling, you have to choose at least one step to make the ceiling look like a tray. Additional steps such as 2 to 4 can be used as an aesthetic incorporation. Therefore, if the original ceiling is 8 ft high, the steps can be either 8'6'' or 9' higher. The difference between the main ceiling and these steps in known as the depth or width of the ceiling and is also used to add designs to the ceilings.
A Cathedral ceiling is also known as a vaulted ceiling, and is a very high ceiling which is made by exposing roof rafters. These are built in such a way that their centers are usually pointed upward, which is commonly observed in churches and old renaissance constructions. Decorating rooms with vaulted ceilings give a very dramatic touch to the house, and are usually used for dining, living rooms, and where there is a staircase attached to the room. These ceilings are very decorative, and are as high as 15 feet or even more.
These ceilings were mainly a trend which was set in the Britain, and homes which have the Victorian theme preferably use them. However, they can be used as extraordinary design ideas in modern homes as well, with the various patterns, which are easily installed. These were usually used in the earlier centuries and they were considered to be a luxury. They are strong, heavy, and durable, where horizontal and vertical beams are made to create design and hold the roof. Since these were and are made of pure timber planks, and not wood composites, they are slightly expensive. However, the sight of rich brown varnished wood is amazing, and paying for it will surely be worth it!
