When In Rome … Ceiling Domes Rule

You see, architectural domes have been around for centuries – that’s a long time.  And for centuries, ceiling domes have been associated with splendor.  From the corbel domes of the ancient Middle East to the umbrella dome of St. Peter’s Basilca in Rome: domes represent architectural grandeur as they dramatically take up most of a ceiling’s space, regardless of the size – making the void visually stunning.  I bet you didn’t know you were going to get a little architectural history lesson, right?

Don’t Be Fooled: Ceiling Domes Are Strong, Not Weak

When my kid first saw a ceiling dome, she was impressed that it didn’t fall or collapse.  My daughter said, “Daddy, how come the upside down bowl doesn’t fall down?” and I explained that ceiling domes are actually strong, not weak, because ceiling domes are really just bunch of arches put together to make a dome shape.  I thought she was so smart to see the upside down bowl in the dome shape – she’s a chip off the ole block!  He-he-ha, I’m just kidding (unless of course you thought that was funny).  Over centuries architects have been perfecting ways to create ceiling domes: from solid stone domes like the Roman Pantheon to the beautiful drywall dome in my dining room – built by yours truly.  You see people used to and still think installing a ceiling dome is difficult and intimidating – until now, so ask yourself, “Why not get fancy?”

Here’s the best part! You don’t have to be a PRO. We’ve designed our ceiling domes to be DIY friendly. My brother and I are average DIYers, and we put the below Universal Dome Kit in his entry. As you can see, no demolition. We simply framed it in over the drywall and below his ceiling.

Just imagine how impressed your friends will be at your next party (PS, don’t worry, I won’t tell them how easy it was to install).  When your friends arrive and you open the front door, be prepared to catch them, as they may stumble when they gaze upon the new ceiling dome gracing your foyer.  Your friends will forget about the once lonely chandelier – that used to hang in a sea of empty space – when they are captivated by the majesty of a soaring ceiling dome that immediately commands the eye upward, following its perfect curves.  Come to think of it, you may want to keep a fainting chaise near your front door.  You know, those Victorian era couches with only one side of the couch with a raised back that women used to rest on when they felt dizzy and faint.  Yes, the ceiling dome will be that beautiful and your friends will surely want one in their house, too.

So get going and order your dome ceiling kit now!  And when you’re done, don’t forget about all the little people who helped you along the way – your ceiling domes guru (me).  Go ahead and send me your before, during, and after pictures so I can show them off here!
