Coffered Ceilings in 15 Contemporary Living Rooms

Jacki Roig

While most of us are occupied in decorating our living rooms, we oftentimes disregard the ceiling. But what we do not know is that it can actually add a different twist to a room’s appeal especially if you have coffered ceilings in it. Coffer or coffering refers to a sunken panel in the shape of a square, rectangle, or octagon in a ceiling. A series of these panels are added to the ceiling using wood or even other materials.

Coffered ceiling is the most common design for decorative ceiling. If you think that they just like the same all the time, actually, they don’t. There are many different ways to do it from the design of the moldings and the colors too. So, today, we have gathered some contemporary living rooms with coffered ceilings. Get a glimpse of these living rooms as you scroll down the page below.

Cozy and contemporary family room

Jacki Roig

A resourceful designer with a knack for all things DIY creates a cozy and contemporary space for her family of four.

For the design inclined, recognizing beautiful pieces is easy enough, but the real decorating challenge comes from knowing how to fit all the elements together in a harmonious way. Designer Sarah Walker has this down to a science. Last year, the reno expert transformed her Oakville, Ont., home’s uninspiring family room into a sophisticated space boasting symmetry and style. “I wanted a modern yet classic room that balances the masculine and feminine qualities of our family,” she says, referring to her husband, Graham, and two boys (Noah, 13, and Tate, 2). Having already installed the hardwood flooring and built-in wall unit with her husband five years prior, Sarah’s next order of business was the furniture layout. “I always pictured this space having a pair of sofas facing each other,”

21 Contemporary Exterior Design Inspiration

Jacki Roig

We mostly talk about the interiors when we talk about house design and the lifestyle of the people living in the house. But, it is the exterior that marks the first impressions and then the interior. An exterior designer fills in the gap of expertise between an interior designer and a landscaper. If you get a good exterior designer, they can help you find all the companies or resources you need to find the right look for your house. For example, they may know that the WDR Roofing Company is able to install the style of roof you would like and have all the correct resources to finish the project.

Interior designers can be excellent for fabrics and seating purchases, but designing outdoor fireplaces or conversation pits may require knowledge and abilities they don’t possess. Planning to make a square look exterior design for your house is a great idea,

50+ Contemporary House Exterior Design Principles

Jacki Roig

Contemporary House Exterior

The exterior of your home is not only the face of your house you show to the world but also the interface between the outside world and the private world of your indoor living space. When thinking about a contemporary house exterior the design principles to follow are predominantly modern in character; sharply angular windows and roof lines are typical, large windows to let natural light pour into the living space are common and restrained use of planting and lighting are preferred. Depending on which face of the property exterior you are working on, the design serves a different purpose; at the rear of the property facing a garden, the goal should be to open up the home into the garden as much as possible when desired, whilst on the frontage of the property more privacy is required.
