New sloped roof items
Today we added some extra sloping ceilings. So now we also have steep and less steep roof items, next to the 45º set we added some weeks ago. Here's the collection and here's an example.
Find them in the architecture category in special purpose structures, do a search on ceiling. have fun!

I am trying to reproduce our plan of our house which is being built Australia. The living kitchen area is one large room. 9.85m long, 6m wide, it has a sloped roof and ceiling.  How can I recreate the sloped ceiling in roomstyler when the height of back wall is 2.6m and the front wall is 3.4m? I tried to work with the ceiling blocks (thanks for the tutorial), but I can’t work out how to make them go the full length of the room 9.85m. Thank you Jeni

Did you try to adjust height of wall?

Unfortunately the roof elements have a fixed slope, so you can't create any roof angle that you would like. it's either 45º or 2:1 (26.5º) or 1:2 (63.5º).
jeni0308 - 3y ago
Yes I tried that, but it lowers both front and back wall to the same height. It seems the software assumes the walls of a room are all the same height. Thanks for the suggestion.

Yesterday we added a whole series of roof windows that can be combined with the sloped roof items. I collected them in this design. See how you can use an opening element in the wall behind the window to get light entering the window and avoid seeing the wall or ceiling behind it. Hope you enjoy them!

Jeni0308: I thought maybe you could use a detached wall and panel door, which you can adjust as you need.

Okay, some more items for sloping ceilings: Corner elements. These can be combined with the other sloping ceiling blocks if you have 2 roofs coming together at a corner.

i am using the sloped window item and all i can see through the window is the wall...how do i get scenery to show through those windows?

Use a frameless door element and adjust the height and width to the maximum that still hides behind the roof element.

thanks... :)

Hope this makes sense. Because the windows are not a fully squared off as the sloped ceilings are, then it is possible to see behind them, thus making it look like a gaping hole behind the sloped window.  Would it be possible to also square off the sloped windows so that you could use it without seeing behind it?

How do you create a two story house?

Hi, dawnalee...  As far as I know, you cannot make an actual second story.  You can, however, create the illusion of a second story.  If you post your question as a new discussion, I am sure someone can help you.  A lot of "experts" might miss it if they are not interested in the sloping ceilings topic here.

Why have you created all of these different sloping ceilings (none of which match the size nor pitch of the ceiling in the room I'm trying to model) rather than just one that you can alter the dimensions of? Just give us a wedge that we can alter HxWxD please.

phil_the, you have to work with the roomhight and you can let these parts cross walls ! 


hauser 3 months ago
phil_the - 3 months ago

I realise that you can cross walls, but this doesn't help if you need to adjust the pitch which is my main problem.

Even without this issue, it would have been so much easier if you had just created one shape that you could alter the dimensions on. There would have been no need for you to create all the different sizes then either!

What do need ? Angle ? 


hauser 3 months ago
phil_the - 3 months ago

Setting the angle would be one way, but it would be a lot easier if could just have Width, Depth and Height.

If you make the room public, we can try to find a solution.

My room is nothing complicated just an outbuilding with a sloped roof that I am converting into a small office.  One wall is 7'6" and the other is 6'6" high, and the two walls are 6' apart.

You have to think and see in RS style. The rest will be done by the imagination.

I am trying to recreate an actual room, so that I can visualise how best to arrange furniture, etc. It would seem that roomstyler is for designing pictures of rooms rather than for actually designing real places.

@phil_the,

I disagree, I've been on Roomstyler for 9 years and have done more real room make-overs for people than I can count. 


Post your basic template in a new Forum thread and  include some links to photo's of your room (sloped ceiling) and I'm sure there will be some members who would like to help you either with just a template or a complete make-over. Make sure to make your template public.  :)
