  • Coffered Ceilings and Their Benefits

A unique architectural element that adds design, drama, and elegance to your spaces, coffered ceilings can be a great enhancement for most types of homes. Essentially, coffered ceilings feature upward indentations in the ceiling, framed by beams in a grid pattern of squares, rectangles, octagons, or other such shapes. 

Are you renovating your home or giving certain rooms a makeover? Adding coffered ceilings could elevate your spaces in more ways than you can imagine. The renovation experts at Bucks County Cabinetry & Design offer an overview of coffered ceilings and their many benefits. 

Coffered Ceiling: A Ceiling Treatment with a Difference 

While most types of ceiling treatments can elevate the look of your home, coffered ceilings have certain specialties that are comparable to none. Coffered ceilings offer a modern take on the Baroque and early Renaissance architectural styles that featured exposed overhead beams at different angles under the roof’s framework. Their sunken panels resemble a deep, grooved checkerboard that creates a dramatic appearance and lends a beautiful texture to the overall space. 

Here are some of the other benefits of coffered ceilings:

  • Illusion of Space: Drawing the eye upward, coffered ceilings tend to create a sense of grandeur and spaciousness, even though the installation may take up some of the overhead space for the beams. Ideally, coffered ceilings work best when your rooms have high ceilings of nine feet or more. 
  • Versatility of Design: In addition to the various possible grid patterns, you can customize coffered ceilings in a number of different ways. Keep them simple, clean, and chic by painting them in a crisp white, or give them depth and drama by: 
  • Adding wallpaper or tin tiles in the sunken panels
  • Staining or painting the beams in a different shade than the center panels
  • Incorporating scallops and ridges into the wooden beams
  • Better Sound Absorption: Coffered ceilings can add audio comfort to your spaces. They absorb excessive sounds or echoes in the room and create spaces that are more conducive to work or relaxation.
  • Increased Home Value: Potential buyers consider ceiling treatments, such as coffered ceilings, a premium and attractive feature while looking at homes. Although it is difficult to quantify the home appreciation value through the addition of coffered ceilings, it is certainly a unique selling point for any home.

Coffered ceilings need advanced skills and structural work that is best left to the professionals. An experienced remodeling expert will also be able to help you choose the ceiling design and type of material that best meets the size, layout and décor of your spaces, as well as your budget.
