Recently, I added trim work to the ceiling of my son's room. It has taken the appeal of his bedroom to the next level. Here's an image before the trim work was installed four inches from the where the wall and ceiling meet. I did this style of trim to keep the eye traveling around the perimeter of his room.
Compare the two, the trim work finishes the room. When you walk into the room it is very striking.
This trim work was done in my dining room. I wanted every single detail to be addressed to really create an impact and to make a grand statement.
This is the ceiling in a client's home. We did a coffered ceiling and added a medallion to her dining room. The room was instantly transformed and looked stunning before we added one piece of furniture. Due to the high ceiling we were able to do the coffered look, whereas in the above photos with eight foot ceilings that would not have worked.
Do you consider ceilings in your design?
