Tray ceilings are a wonderful way to give the illusion of a higher ceiling. Tray ceilings are an interesting architectural feature that enhances the look of a room. Tray ceiling design can be plain, ornate, subtle or dramatic. Tray ceiling design is popular in formal dining and living rooms, as well as in large master bedrooms. Usually, tray ceilings have a light fixture or fan hanging from the center. Tray ceilings can be left alone, but decorating them adds a punch of style to any room. Inverted tray ceiling design that have the extra level hanging downward rather than recessed, can call attention to an object such as a range hood or a pot rack. For example, a small plain kitchen can be made more interesting by creating an inverted tray ceiling pot rack as a focal point. The pot rack area could be painted or finished to match the ceiling or it could be in a completely different color and/or material to really stand out. Tray ceilings, whether inverted or recessed, often have molding trim around them.
