Custom Designed Coffered Ceilings
In historic architecture, a coffered ceiling was created by arranging coffers (or framed boxes) in interesting configurations on a ceiling. The coffers were square, rectangular or octagonal and most often had deep recesses and were originally made out of stone. Eventually coffered ceilings replaced stone structures because a lighter weight material was more desirable. For centuries people built elaborate coffered ceilings to create architectural interest. Back then only the wealthy could afford such luxury.
Today we have a Coffered Ceiling System which is both elegant and affordable. As a coffered ceiling system it is user-friendly and versatile for all applications including new construction or remodel, residential or commercial. It installs much like a metal grid system with main runners and cross tees. The drop-in panels are the coffers which create the depth. This system does not need to be attached to existing metal grid. Therefore, the layout and coffer size can be optimized for the particular space, giving each ceiling a custom, well-planned look.
When it comes to coffered ceilings, we have been experts for many years. We offer many styles allowing you to create a unique room. The drop ceiling concept allows you to have a stunning ceiling even in a basement where you might need access to ductwork etc. Over the years we have developed creative ways to work with lighting, venting, height changes, soffits, home theater components and other mechanicals that affect a ceiling. We have styles and ideas for high ceilings or low basement ceilings as well as cathedral ceilings and standard height ceilings.
