The Best Decorating Ideas For Gabled Patio Ceilings

Jun 18th 2014 at 4:10 AM

When we talk about a gabled patio (sometimes known as a cathedral patio), we are talking about a ceiling with sloped sides that lead up to a central point. These ceilings add height to the space and aid in directing the eye up. Because there will be a lot of attention on the roof, it is important that you have decorated it in a way that is tasteful and in keeping with your theme.

  • Plants – Greenery can be effectively used to warm up the space and it can actually help to lower the ceiling a little. You should choose bright flowers or long, hanging plants that will help to add variety to the straight lines of your patio. For homeowners who do not have the time to look after plants you could also use fake ones.
  • Tall Vases – These can be used to add to the impression of height in the space, as well as preventing it from seeming too overwhelming. Vases, especially when you have filled with tall reeds or feathers, appear as if they are visually holding the ceiling up and reduce the angularity. Match the vases to other colours you have used.
  • Rounded Frames – For a gabled patio that is a little bit more enclosed, you might be looking for something that you can hang on the wall, close to the apex of the ceiling. Frames and mirrors with round or circular frames will help to create an airy feel in the space. Steer clear of rectangular ones as these emphasize the triangle of the ceiling.
  • Fans – These can be used to take up a little of the space in a gabled ceiling and to inject some cool air into the space. It will drop the ceiling to a lower, less imposing point and will add motion. Just make sure that you choose a ceiling fan that compliments your design aesthetic for the patio, such as timber, rattan, metal or plastic.

When it comes to decorating a gabled patio, you really don’t need to do much as the interesting apex created by the ceiling will be all the focal point you need. All of the decorative touches that you will be adding are there to enhance this point, although some of them are also useful in making the space feel more private and less on display, especially if the roof is clear.
