Coffered Ceilings & Other Decorative Ceilings

Testimonials gallery Glossary  

Coffered ceilings are usually made from wood beams and crown moulding on the edges. The panels are often painted, tiled, or have skylights inserted in them. There are many options available when it comes to the versatility of coffered ceilings.

In ancient times, coffers were used to lighten the load of a dome roof, decoratively hide exposed structural beams and defects, and/or create the illusion of dome height. In more modern times, coffered ceilings are used to give an elegant, manor-house-look to a room. 

Their appeal lies in the architectural definition and visual interest that they add to a room. Although classic coffers feature heavy millwork and even, regular spacing, homeowners and design pros have come up with inventive twists to suit less traditional spaces. 

National Millwork's custom millwork shop has the ability to create custom wood coffered ceilings. The possibilities of what you can do with them is only limited by your imagination. They are one of the most versatile design elements for ceilings and they are also timeless architectural features. If you need custom mouldings to complement the coffers, National Millwork has the ability to create just about any profile you can imagine.

There are also other types of decorative ceilings. Using custom panels and moulding profiles, you can create any shaped ceiling that you desire. The possibilities of what you can do with them is only limited by your imagination. Ceilings are one of the most versatile design elements and can made into timeless architectural features. National Millwork can help you design and build any sort of custom ceiling you can imagine.
