Is a raked ceiling the right choice for your home?

May 24, 2018

Rake it till you make it!

Firstly what the heck is a raked ceiling? You may have heard it called by another name, like a pitched ceiling, a vaulted ceiling or cathedral ceiling (how confusing!).

To put it simply, a raked ceiling is an inclined ceiling that provides extra height than an ordinary flat ceiling does. These soaring ceilings can provide a range of benefits to your new home build, as we cover below.

They make a room feel larger than life.

Walk into any room with a raked ceiling, and you’ll immediately feel a sense of light and space that is harder for ordinary ceilings to achieve. Taller ceilings mean you have more space for windows, which allows you to make the most of the abundant natural light available – and our beautiful West Australian weather!

Take a look at that ‘wow’ factor.

There’s no doubt raked ceilings are seriously impressive, providing a real focal point to any room. Whether it’s the impression of added space, or just their general appearance, raked ceilings are definitely a real showstopper. If you’re wanting to add a sense of grandeur to your new home, a raked ceiling can help achieve it!

Hello, air flow!

Goodbye, stuffy rooms! Raked ceilings really are a breath of beautiful South West fresh air, especially in the hot summer months, giving the air plenty of room to move. And, don’t be afraid your home will be cold in winter – with the right insulation, you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of your raked ceilings year-round.

They allow your creativity to thrive.

Raked ceilings not only give the impression of increased space in a room but also give you more freedom when it comes to furnishings and accessories. Why? The added space means you can more comfortably fill the room with furniture and statement pieces without it being too overwhelming or feeling cluttered. Go for it!
