Coffered Ceiling

For this ceiling, carpenters boxed out a grid with 2x4s and covered the recesses with drywall, then added stock crown molding. For a coffered look that comes just from applied moldings, companies like Midwestern Wood Products sell easy-to-install solid-wood modular systems (a kit of runners and cross-ties) that let competent DIYers hang their own. At about $12 per square foot, you could pay $2,500 for a 13-by-15-foot ceiling like this one.
