22 Coffered Ceiling Design Ideas that Add Depth and Texture

A coffered ceiling is a series of geographical shapes created by beams in a square, rectangle or even triangle patterns. Some feature bare wood beams while others include crown molding surrounding the beams. The design adds a dynamic depth and texture to the ceiling.

Any room can be enhanced by a coffered ceiling, including kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms. They’re expensive, but if you want your ceiling to stand out, a coffered treatment will make a bold statement — as you can see in our photo gallery.
