Among the more stylish ceiling projects, tray ceilings add dimension, drama and architectural interest to your home. Not only that, but they make any space appear larger than it actually is. Here’s what you need to know.
Cost estimates for installing tray ceilings depend entirely on the size of the job and the style you have in mind (number of tiers or “steps,” shape, angles, curves, etc.). However, if your ceiling already has sloped scissor trusses, a tray ceiling could be added at a relatively low cost. They are also much easier and cheaper to install in one-story homes or on the second level, as any ceiling work becomes more difficult when there is a floor above it.
Because framing a sloped tray ceiling tends to be a simpler process and the sheetrock is less expensive, it usually comes with a slightly lower price tag.
