Tray ceilings are becoming quite popular for a few very good reasons. They have two or more levels with the center ceiling being at least one to two feet higher above where the primary ceiling begins. This approach brings a dramatic architectural look to any room.
- Height – Even a home with average walls can appear quite tall with tray ceilings because the central area grants the room so much additional depth.
- Overall Volume – Not only does a room appear taller with tray ceilings, the overall size of the space appears significantly larger. In fact, the room is provided with so much more volume, it is recommended to measure your walls when shopping for furniture because it is common to over-buy, thinking that you have more room than you actually do.
- Design – Tray ceilings offer a great amount of flexibility when it comes to decorating. You can have fun with different paint colors, borders, add lighting around a layer or even paint a mural or install decorative molding.
If you are planning a remodel on a room and you really want to have that WOW factor you’re looking for, a tray ceiling may be just what you need to really take the appearance of the room to another level (or several levels)!
