Coffered Ceiling

A coffered ceiling is a set of recessed panels arranged in a grid. It can make a room look grand and give it more of a three-dimensional feel. You'll often see them in formal rooms like dining rooms and living rooms, but you can also use them in more casual spaces to add a touch of class.

Tray Ceiling

A tray ceiling is a raised ceiling recessed in the middle, creating a "tray" effect. This type of ceiling idea can add depth and dimension to your room, likely in bedrooms, bathrooms, and dining rooms. You can even add lighting to create a warm and inviting ambiance.

Cathedral Ceiling

A cathedral ceiling is a tall, peaked ceiling that can add a sense of grandeur and drama to a room. You'll find them in great rooms and entryways because they make your space more spacious and airy. You can save on your energy bill with some natural lighting too. Cathedral ceilings can also be designed with skylights or clerestory windows to bring natural light.

Vaulted Ceiling

A vaulted ceiling is a ceiling that is raised and arched. It is another way to make your space feel larger. With the higher ceiling, you will feel like your furniture takes up less space in the room, making it feel airy. 

Beamed Ceiling

A beamed ceiling is a ceiling that has exposed wooden beams running across it. It is ideal for Nebraska home builders who want to add a sense of warmth and rustic charm to a room. You can find these ceiling designs in the country or rustic-style homes. You can stain or paint beamed ceilings to match the room's decor.

Wood-paneled Ceiling

A wood-paneled ceiling is one consisting of wooden planks. This type of ceiling can add warmth and rustic charm to a room you can often find in a country or rustic-style home. Like a beamed ceiling, you can paint wood-paneled ceilings or stain them to match your room's decor.

Exposed Ductwork Ceiling

An exposed ductwork ceiling is a ceiling that has exposed HVAC ducts and pipes. This type of ceiling can add an industrial or edgy feel to a space and is great if you're building a modern or urban-style home.

Suspended Ceiling

A suspended ceiling is where design meets functionality. It's a ceiling that is suspended below the main ceiling. If you have an HVAC, this type of you ceiling can use to conceal the HVAC duct.
