Brampton Luxury Home Quality: What IS A Coffered Ceiling?

Coffered ceilings are ceilings that are divided into small architectural sections. These sections are most commonly squares, but rectangles or polygons are options as well. These squares are then outlined by 3D mouldings that make them ‘pop’. These mouldings are similar to a crown moulding, but outline the squares all across the ceiling.


While this moulded ceiling is relatively easy to add (it doesn’t require structural additions or major renovations) it adds warmth and opulence to the room.


The colours of coffered ceilings can vary. The typical white of crown mouldings is a popular choice—especially for those who already have white mouldings in their home, but wood and metal can also make for beautiful choices. Within the inlayed squares of coffered ceilings, some homeowners opt to add a design to increase the intricacy, whether it be paint-, metal- or other material-based.
