7. Convert it into an atriumIf the entrance of your home has a huge hallway, then how about treating it as an atrium, as in the image? The design of this double-height hallway looks luxurious and floods the interiors with natural light through the skylights fixed on the vaulted ceiling. Additionally, this space is beautified with a detailed marble flooring, ornate grilles and a piece of statement furniture in the centre of the hallway.
7. Barrel vault ceilingA barrel vault ceiling is a barrel-shaped ceiling with an arch that runs the length of the ceiling. These ceilings are used along a long hallway. Just see how, in this double-height space, the design of the barrel-vaulted ceiling is further enhanced with skylights that flood the interiors with natural light.
