The ultimate master retreat is topped with this owner's suite trey ceiling that emphasizes the grand dimension of this spacious personal space. The choice to bathe the room in earthtones and white is the perfect color palette for this setting.

The classic look to this formal dining room trey ceiling reflects the elegance of the room, with a welcoming openness and simplistic design that compliments expansive windows, archways, chair rail, and hardwoods.

This angled trey ceiling makes a formal dining statement as a warm welcome to every sit down meal. Serving as a tie-together with incredibly detailed trim work, strategically placed windows and an art niche, this trey reflects the ceiling appeal of custom homes.

Look at the layers! This master suite white trey ceiling adds line after line of dimension with dramatic impact on this owners retreat. The sitting area tucked in at the back of the room has its own little niche, behind the trey.

Here's another approach to a multi-layer trey ceiling, in this master suite that's bold with personality. Bright yellow and white layers make the room sunny and bright, while emphasizing the design's intricate tiers.

Frame your formal dining room with a vertical trey ceiling like this to provide balance with your favorite wainscoting design. Color adds dimension, while white adds formality.

Trey Ceilings Photo #8: Flirtatious and romantic

Flirtatious romance can be created with multiple layers in the trey ceiling, like this master suite retreat. Your color palette will reflect the tone you want to reflect, whether you tend toward whimsy, daring or conventional.  

Trey Ceilings Photo #9: Kitchen with character

Create character in your kitchen, with a trey ceiling that goes over the space where you spend most of your time. This example is clean and crisp, with a simple box appeal that serves as an extension of the show stopper chef's kitchen.

Trey Ceilings Photo #10: Keeping it simple

Keep it simple, with a basic trey ceiling with accent color for just a touch of formality. This effect is popular with more casual lifestyles, where rigid formality feels out of place.

Trey Ceilings Photo #11: Adding complexity through shape and color

Give your dining room an incredible designer appeal, with a multi-layered octagonal trey ceiling accented by bands of color.

Trey Ceilings Photo #12: Downplaying the upscale

When the emphasis is on all the archways, you might want to opt for an all-white octagonal trey in the formal dining room. This provides the expected formality, while keeping most of the attention elsewhere.

Trey Ceilings Photo #13: Simple and sweet

Simple and sweet, this master suite with trey ceiling has a soft, warm feeling, with a sitting alcove that beckons just beyond.

Trey Ceilings Photo #14: Creating confidence

When you enter your dining room through the wide swoop of this dramatic arched entry, the bold red and white of this traditional dining room reflects confidence. When there's that much going on in the rest of the room, use your trey ceiling as a punctuation mark, like this.

We will be repaiting our MBR and thinking of painting the trey ceiling a darker color (gray), and the walls a lighter gray...or vice versa!
