I am converting my living room into a study - rich Cherry wall panels and trim. I am also going to coffer the ceiling which will be painted.
The room is 15 feet by 14 feet with 9 foot ceiling. The face of the coffer will be 5.5 inches and trimmed with crown.
Is there a rule to follow when deciding on how many sections the ceiling will have? I am trying to decide between 9 rectangles or 16 rectangles. I have seen pictures of both and think it's a matter of taste but want to get some additional opinions before I make my final decision. Thanks!
