Ceiling - pitched or flat?

Recommended Posts

We had an electrical fire and are reconstructing the converted garage where I have my studio. It's not a perfect environment or anything, one of the walls is floor to ceiling glass doors and another is a glass garage door. It's a great room to write in, but not a study in great acoustics or anything.


We had to raise the pitch of the roof to get it up to code, and we were going to drywall along the beams below, which is how the room was before, a flat ceiling. But we realize we could put the drywall on the pitched roof (there will be insulation above) and have the roof pitched and make the room feel nicer. The beams would remain.


My question is, is having a pitched ceiling, with beams running across every few feat, better or worse than a flat ceiling for sound in a room, in general?
