A traditional coffer ceiling in rich wood with carved molding makes a formal statement. This type of ceiling treatment requires high ceilings that can offset the heaviness of the wood.

Ceilings are often an overlooked element in a room. However, elaborate ceiling treatments can add drama and interest to a room. Coffered ceilings, painted ceilings and beamed ceilings can all be interpreted in traditional and contemporary styles. When designing a room, don’t forget to look up. Something as simple as tinted paint to coordinate with your walls, or even something a bit more ornamental such as a medallion with a chandelier, will make your room feel more polished. But why stop there? Here is a collection of elaborate ceiling treatments to inspire you.
