Barrel Vaulted Design Ideas

When working with a design/build home builder, you can incorporate use barrel vaults (sometimes called tunnel vaults or wagon vaults) to create a dramatic entry or a discrete transition between rooms.

Barrel Vaults in the Master Bath

Depending on the floor plan layout you love, there are several easy ways to incorporate a barrel vault in your master bath. 

Master Bath Barrel Vault Idea #1: How to add a vault above a vanity

We're also seeing more home owners nix their bath entrance door - leaving an open entrance between the master suite and bath. 

Barrel Vault Foyers

Barrel vaults make impressive entrances, whether you love a home plan with a single story or two story foyer.
