Coffered Ceilings Can Create Beautiful Interiors
There are many designs, and you can go for a more traditional approach by using wood accents or unique, dramatic patterns. The more modern approach often reduces wood accents in favour of plain white coffers an pairs the design with pot-lights.
Your coffered ceiling addition can easily be used to create a gorgeous interior design that centres around pattern or light, and can add dimension to any living area. By using unique patterning, you can create a textured, layered and detailed area that draws eyes to it. Doing so can create a sleek, traditional architecture that really brings out the heavy formality of your space. If your room looks too plain, adding coffers will add the detail you need to keep the eye pleased. You can orient your ceiling around a light fixture, or go for the more modern approach of simply inserting pot lights into the ceiling.
Many companies offer detailed ornamental designs which can create an eye pleasing display that draws attention. To really get the most out of your ceiling design, we recommend hiring a professional interior designer to recommend you what would work best with your room or rooms.
