Ceilings are often the last thing thought about when designing a room, but it doesn't have to be that way.  By adding different materials to the ceiling it can change the style, feeling, and overall look. There are so many different ceiling options: wood, metal, paint, and trim to name a few. Below are some examples of how you could treat your ceiling. Don't be scared to look above, make your ceiling groovy!!

 Coffered ceilings: Historically, coffered ceilings have been used in more traditional rooms, but they don't have to be. Below are two examples of coffered ceilings done beautifully. If you have high ceilings, I think they are the perfect treatment to add some dimension, helping a large room feel more intimate & detailed-more complete.

 Wood Ceilings: Applying wood on the ceiling can be absolutely stunning. Wood applications can include beams, sheet panels, wood planks or tongue and groove. The finish chosen for the wood can give the room a rustic feel, a clean look, or very polished. Which wood ceiling do you prefer?

Metal/Tin Ceilings: Metal ceilings often achieve an industrial feel or historical look for a room. They can appear more rustic and old or clean and fresh, but both looks can be impressive. Tin ceilings are nostalgic, creating a feeling of days gone by. Adding character to an otherwise sea of bland.
