Ideas on ceiling (not conventional)


On behalf of GB and all the others who brought up non-terminology and non-coffered ceiling topics, allow me to apologize. You see, there are people here that are concerned that projects asked about are done correctly and safely, they will often bring up things that weren't mentioned by the OP. Sometimes we will even argue with each other or make inside jokes, completely ignoring the OP while doing so. Codes? We don't need no stinkin codes. We will worry about that when we try to sell the non-compliant house. Perhaps, if you weren't concerned with codes and such, you should have asked in Interior Design, where the emphasis is more on appearance than the actual construction and codes and such. But don't count on not getting "off topic" responses there either. Again let me apologize for any one's having wasted your valuable time with freely offere and free advice.

When you want free advice it's perhaps best not to be insulting in your replies. After all, there's sometimes little things in the code that really make sense, and are points you may never have considered.

Combine the question of height with the design impact, and add code limits and you narrow down what solutions are worth considering. Going with a full coffered ceiling and the reduction in height it brings only works unless you've got a room that can truly carry it off. High ceilings and a lot of light are usually key elements that come into play. But alternatives like tin and other thermoplastic panels are certainly worth considering.

Here's a website with lots of ideas to consider: http://www.houzz.com/coffered-ceiling

Its been a while since we heard from jack. Do you think that GB's inconsiderate remark offended him? I hope he didn't bump his head on the ceiling when he left.
