Layered Drywall
In flexible, open floor plans, boundaries between living and dining areas are often hard to define; the usual strategy depends on furniture groupings and such fixed focal points as fireplaces and windows. Applying a simple border of single-thickness drywall to the ceiling emphasizes each area and boosts the architectural impact of the space without blocking light or casting shadows. This technique picks up on rectangular shapes and can be particularly effective if there's raised-panel cabinetry or wainscoting in the room. Install the border with construction or panel adhesive and drywall screws that penetrate joists at least 1 in. Create crisp edges on the new layer of drywall with J-bead and then finish with joint compound.
