Captivating Ceiling Details
Design Delights by David Court
Builders pay so much attention to flooring finishes, that they often neglect the impact that a simple ceiling detail can have. They can be used to define spaces (such as bulwark over an island, creating visual separation from adjoining spaces), to enhance comfort level (small intimate spaces can have lower ceilings, large public spaces have higher ceilings), and to provide decorative detail and interest (coffers, exposed beams, ceiling edge details). While natural wood finish coffered ceilings can be quite expensive, many of these ceiling details are quite affordable.
