Ceilings in today’s homes can add a value that goes way beyond its more obvious structural purpose. Although it is not well known to many homeowners, the ceiling of a home can make as much of an impact in a room’s interior design including it’s wall décor, floor coverings and furniture. Not every ceiling in the home needs to be embellished, however, one insider design tip is to have at least one specialty ceiling in the home that does more than just keep the four walls standing. There are several options for achieving a ceiling that makes a statement and one of them is by incorporating a decorative roof truss design into a vaulted or cathedral ceiling. A roof truss design is basically a non-functional "framework" that’s built using a combination of faux wood beams, columns, braces, and arches. A roof truss design will still keep your cathedral ceiling open and airy up to the rafters, but with a rich wood finish and texture, it can provide the warmth of a rustic Aspen rocky mountain lodge or the elegance of a French country estate. Volterra’s lightweight roof truss designs mimic natural wood, creating a dramatic effect for vaulted ceilings without the cost of using natural wood trusses. Our faux wood roof truss design plans run the gamut from a basic scissor truss style to the more elaborate arched hammer style truss. Available in nine different styles, multiple wood grains and luxurious wood finishes like deep espresso, light walnut, rustic oak, and rich mahogany, these structures bring elegance and a touch of coziness to any escalated overhead space.
