Vaults and beams
Today we are going to talk about ceilings, as they are one of the most important parts of any construction or even decoration of a home. Have you ever considered introducing vaults or beams to add character to your home? But first comes another question, do you know exactly what vaults and beams are?
A vault is a curved plasterboard, where its height and distance can be to suit the consumer. It is usually smooth, although it can also be made by imitating old brick.
The beam is a U-shaped plaster piece, with a wide variety of smooth or patterned designs and with different measurements both in width and height. We can also find wood imitations in plaster and polyurethane.
The decoration with vaults and beams on the ceilings is very common in rural areas, but today we can transfer this proposal to any space where we want to include the rustic style. In addition, in traditional Mallorcan houses, such as "casals" or "possessions", it is very typical to find this type of construction.
A ceiling with vaults and beams always causes a feeling of admiration. It tends to cause surprise since it is very unusual, but actually getting it is quite simple. There are vaults and beams on the market, usually made of plaster of standard measures, easy to find if we consult by a good professional.

There is such a variety of models that it is best to adapt to the space to get it to fit as well as possible. It is also important to think about the direction of how to visually position the pieces horizontally or vertically, depending on where you want to visually lengthen the room. These are some details to think about before carrying out the reform.
Paint can also be important, choosing the tone can make a big difference. Painting everything in pastel tones can give us a more romantic touch, while if you choose to differentiate the vault from the beam with the contrast, you will be able to enhance and highlight the ceiling. The most traditional ones are usually made of natural wood, dark enough to have a greater contrast.
Another very interesting option is to only include the vault without beam where the entire roof becomes curved, optically very different from what we are used to. It is a not inconsiderable idea, since it is achieved without any great artifice.
