Coffered Ceiling Offers Crowning Touch!

Ceiling features tough to photograph with an iPhone, but this project from yesterday had a huge impact on our clients’ dining room! They wanted the look of a coffered ceiling but with minimal downward projection into the room. We achieved the look by attaching 3/4″ lumber  in the panel pattern, and surrounding each panel with 1/4-round molding. Crown molding at the room’s perimeter finishes the ceiling beautifully.

We added a similar treatment to the half wall in their adjoining kitchen. The panel-look wainscoting and extra wide top shelf helped turn a simrple half wall into a warm, inviting kitchen feature!
