Coffered Ceiling - 6 sections or 9?

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!

I would rather trim out 9 than 16; not sure visually the difference. The 16 might have boxes a bit small but that is all a matter of taste.
