Let's face it, white builder-grade 8' ceilings just aren't all that interesting. A vaulted ceiling is different, unique, and possibly the best feature of the entire space. (Or, if not the best feature, it's a critical background player.) Vaulted ceilings add oomph to the room's design and appeal.
Domes were the first popular vaulted ceiling option – imagine a hollow sphere cut in half. Built at times before history was even history, domes have been constructed out of mud, stone, wood, brick, concrete, metal, glass, and even plastic. The barrel vault (aka wagon vault and tunnel vault) stemmed from the dome and is the simplest kind of vault – a semicircle stretched into a continuous arch. Next came the groin vault, which is where two barrel vaults cross one another and create a true ellipse intersection known as a groin.
One disadvantage of wanting vaulted ceilings when your house wasn't built with them is that it can be very challenging, invasive, or maybe even impossible, to retrofit them to your space. It's one of the rare architectural features that generally is best to design and integrate in the early stages of building.
