Bold, beautiful coffered ceilings transform a plain ceiling into a work of art. Architecturally rich, these dimensional panels form an elegant framework of sculptured recesses, or “coffers,” overhead. The effect creates a visual depth that makes a dramatic décor element.

COFFERED CEILING FEATURES
Easy Elegance™ coffered ceiling panels give you the classic coffered look at a fraction of the cost of custom millwork. Made of rigid, durable PVC, these 2’ x 2’ lay-in panels fit inside a standard 15/16" drop ceiling grid.
Coffered panels come in two lightweight styles: a deep coffer panel and a shallow coffer panel, so you can choose the architectural effect you want on your ceiling.
Coffered ceiling panels are mold, mildew and sag resistant, which makes them ideal for finished basements. These ceiling panels will give you the visual variety and flexibility to mix and match panel colors, or even reverse panels to express your own personal style.
COFFERED CEILING COLORS
Choose ceiling coffers in either white or black, or you can paint the panels to coordinate with your existing décor. For example, a vibrant color, like red, makes a bold design statement for a contemporary dining room, or you could alternate black coffers with red or white for a checkerboard effect. Perfect for game rooms or playrooms.
In home theatres, wine cellars, or man caves, black coffered panels highlight the sculpted effect and enhance the room’s elegant ambience.
