A small change can make a big difference in a room. With many of the cookie cutter 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom homes that have been built over the past 15-20 years, one appears to be just like the next. If you are looking to set your home apart things like crown molding and chair rails won’t cut it anymore.
A classic look such as a cofferred ceiling, or other designs are taking it to the next step and helping a home to stand out.
One thing to keep in mind with this design change. If your ceiling height is below 8′, this might not be the best idea. Even a couple of inches can make a room feel much smaller. If the room started out small (12’x12′ or less) this will make it feel much more cozy. If the room is large, and the ceiling height is only 8′, this will make the room feel small (especially if you are going with a dark stain).
