Coffered Ceilings in 15 Contemporary Living Rooms

While most of us are occupied in decorating our living rooms, we oftentimes disregard the ceiling. But what we do not know is that it can actually add a different twist to a room’s appeal especially if you have coffered ceilings in it. Coffer or coffering refers to a sunken panel in the shape of a square, rectangle, or octagon in a ceiling. A series of these panels are added to the ceiling using wood or even other materials.

Coffered ceiling is the most common design for decorative ceiling. If you think that they just like the same all the time, actually, they don’t. There are many different ways to do it from the design of the moldings and the colors too. So, today, we have gathered some contemporary living rooms with coffered ceilings. Get a glimpse of these living rooms as you scroll down the page below.

Cozy and contemporary family room

A resourceful designer with a knack for all things DIY creates a cozy and contemporary space for her family of four.

50+ Contemporary House Exterior Design Principles

Contemporary House Exterior

The exterior of your home is not only the face of your house you show to the world but also the interface between the outside world and the private world of your indoor living space. When thinking about a contemporary house exterior the design principles to follow are predominantly modern in character; sharply angular windows and roof lines are typical, large windows to let natural light pour into the living space are common and restrained use of planting and lighting are preferred. Depending on which face of the property exterior you are working on, the design serves a different purpose; at the rear of the property facing a garden, the goal should be to open up the home into the garden as much as possible when desired, whilst on the frontage of the property more privacy is required.
