Coffered Ceilings for Chic Spaces

Sometimes overlooked, often neglected, the poor ceiling doesn’t really get the credit it deserves.

We agonize over wall coverings, spend hours picking out the perfect flooring and throw rugs, but beyond a cursory coat of paint, the  ceiling is often overlooked. These gorgeous coffered ceilings are changing all of that!

Coffered ceilings are a great way to add interest to the ceiling and add another layer of style to any space.

Choosing a different color or stain for the beams and the ceiling space creates a unique look that really pops,

While painting the ceiling all one color adds dimension and depth without drawing too much attention. (And using gorgeous paneling, like in the first photo, lends a refined feel.)

These stunning ceilings make a space feel cozy and comfortable. Combined with reclaimed floors and an antique dining table in this kitchen, they add a wonderful sense of history.

Ceilings are a place where we are usually looking for height, so coffered ceilings are the perfect solution for creating a unique look without feeling like your taking up too much of that coveted ceiling height.

Beyond a basic beam, these ceilings can be created with everything from the simplest boards to the most intricate molding to add a fun architectural detail that gives the room a totally customized look.

And, as this kitchen proves, they don’t have to be totally symmetrical or uniform to be beautiful. We love how the pendant lighting hangs from the beam in this kitchen.

Along with fun fabric, unique wall coverings and the perfect backsplash, a stunning coffered ceiling is another great way to make maximum, chic impact in a kitchen. But we love them in any room! Do you have a space where you think a coffered ceiling would look great?

Thanks so much for visiting us on Design Chic today. We always love seeing you!
