Help Deciding on Ceiling detail


Dear Friends,

I need some help deciding what ceiling/niche designs looks better. My plan is to put some 4 halogen inset lights,
these will be pointing to the wall behind the tv. My actual ceiling height is just 8 feet high.

What of the 6 options you like the most?

Thanks!!!

Option 2 if you have room for the cans up there. Cleaner the framing lines the better.

Hi Splendor17, here to add to the confusion, how about another option 7 and build a fake recess for the TV area so it looks more like a built-in unit ?

Option 2 is clean and allows for nice accents along the front face or edge of the soffit. Option 5 could be interesting for mood lighting (indirect) and decor on the shelf.
