We often overlook the ceiling as a place to trim, most likely because we tend to think of the ceiling as something out of sight as we focus on the surfaces directly ahead of us: the walls. But adding some trim to a ceiling can provide a whole new dimension and structure to a room. It can reinforce a focal point, add rhythm and modulation, provide a surface to introduce color and so much more.
And the addition of some ceiling trim can be an economical way to change the character of a room. If you’re a do-it-yourself type with some carpentry and finishing skills, you can add ceiling trim for just a few hundred dollars in materials. If you’re not that type, it’ll cost you more to hire a skilled tradesperson, but the minimal investment will go a long way in making your home special.
