I'm replacing the old double florescent lights in the kitchen with a copper chandelier. It was an ebay find that I took apart and rewired. Since we need a lot of light in the kitchen, I redirected the lights downward so I had to add some copper pipe and the type of light sockets that use rings for the glass shades.
I'm trying to decide how to finish the recessed area. I liked the idea of lining it with copper to match the copper trim on the fireplace. The two rooms are accented with copper.
I bought 20' of copper flashing which is a thin foil on a plastic backing that I had to order from Lowes. But it is 3" short! So I think I will use fake copper metal tiles from Amazon instead. Any other ideas?
Put some wide moulding around the perimeter, and maybe a small sized medallion between the light & ceiling. If you get copper panels for the ceiling, you may have to manufacture the curves if you can not find them online, for where the ceiling meets the walls.

I thought I would use cove molding and panel the ceiling with molding and thin wood panels. I have some 4" baseboard but only enough to go around the perimeter once. I also have some flat trim pieces of oak. I was hoping to cover the ceiling instead of trying to fix the drywall and paint it. There are a couple of holes and a screwed in panel from a former remodel. I think the tiles will just square up at the ceiling, and they can be cut easily as they are thin metal. I like the idea of a medallion as a central point.
